Less than a month after it was announced that he and another former four-star recruit were leaving Texas, Darius Terrell has found himself a new collegiate football home and, conveniently enough, it doesn’t require moving out of state.
The tight end, who will play wide receiver with his new team, confirmed to the Denton Chronicle that the new team will indeed be North Texas. Terrell (pictured, No. 15) told the Chronicle that Houston, Arizona State and UTEP were among the schools interested in his services.
Terrell would have to sit out the 2012 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, although the paper writes that, due to an ailing grandmother, he could be granted a hardship waiver that would allow him to play immediately in 2012.
If Terrell is forced to sit out the upcoming season, he would still have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2013.
A four-star member of UT’s 2010 recruiting class, Terrell was rated as the No. 46 receiver in the country by Rivals.com coming out of DeSoto (Tex.) High School. After redshirting his true freshman season, Terrell played in nine games and caught one pass for nine yards in 2011.
