Head coach Jeff Scott pulled in a lanky wideout originally from Philly with Yusuf Terry announcing his transfer to Tampa.

Terry signed with Baylor in 2019 to play under Matt Rhule but after some coaching changes in Waco, he’ll join USF.

As a recruit, Terry held many high profile offers, including Missoui, Pittsburgh, Michigan State, and even UCF, and was a high ranking three-star on both Rivals and 247 in 2019.

Out of high school, he had 69 catches for 1296 yards and 12 touchdowns in his career at Imhotep Charter in Philly. He redshirted in his first season at Baylor, and in his second season he made six catches catches for 69 yards in three games before opting out the last three games of the season.

At 6’3”, he has the mold and frame that Jeff Scott looks for in receivers, and his catch radius and speed are attributes that’ll see him getting significant playing time this year. Running a verified 4.65, there are shades of Marquez Valdez-Scantling in his play style, where the entire route tree is dangerous for defending teams trying to cover him.
