Northwestern State Offers Kilgore’s Clay Wiley + Carthage’s Terian “Tee” Goree
Two Division I FCS offers from a Southland Conference program went out Friday morning to East Texas football players.
Northwestern State offered Kilgore offensive lineman Clay Wiley and Carthage receiver Terian "Tee" Goree. Carthage coach Scott Surratt told ETSN.fm about Goree's offer, which is his fifth. Kilgore's coaching staff alerted ETSN.fm contributor Justin Wells of Wiley's offer, which is his first.
Goree already holds four Division I FBS offers: Louisiana Tech, Memphis, ULL, and ULM. All five of his offers have come in the last six weeks, including four -- the ULM offer came April 29 -- since May 30, when ULL offered him. The next day saw Louisiana Tech and Memphis offer Goree, who measured 6-foot-3 3/4, 168 pounds in shoes at the May 19 ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine at APEC training facility in Tyler. The rangy receiver ran a 4.58-second 40-yard dash and impressed in position-specific drills.
Goree’s 2012 totals in receptions (66), receiving yards (1,261), and touchdown catches (17) rank fourth, second, and second, respectively, in single-season school history.
Goree and Wiley were both second-team selections on the 2012 ETSN.fm East Texas Super Team. Wiley, who can play multiple positions on the offensive line, measured 6-3 1/4, 284.6 pounds in shoes at the ETSN.fm Football Recruiting Combine. He had 14 bench reps at 225 pounds, ran a 5.24-second 40, and finished the third-best Keiser squat wattage output (3,242) of the 100 participants at the combine.
Both players fill key roles on offenses that are expected to be tough to stop in 2013. Carthage and Kilgore will likely both be in the preseason top 10 in Class 3A, if not the top five. Both teams reached the 2012 3A Division I state semifinals.
