Lansing Everett's WR/DB Leondre "Damon" Terry becomes the Chippewa's 6th instate commit

The Central Michigan Chippewa's have been scorching this offseason, as they look to build their team for the future.  Lansing Everett's WR/DB Leondre Terry while taking a visit north to Mount Pleasant, committed to Central Michigan becoming this 6th instate overall commit and according to Chippewa Country, the Chips have another out of state commit, bringing their total to 7 commits for the Class of 2015.  With the addition of Terry, the Chippewa's will be adding a key component to their passing game.  We were able to catch up with Terry to discuss his commitment.

Fresh off of committing to the Chippewa's, Terry explained how it felt committing to the Chippewa's, "feels good. Like I made the right decision."

There are still 10 months until Leondre Terry can sign his National Letter of Intent for Central Michigan, and he did not have to commit right away even though Central Michigan was his only offer, Terry talked about why he committed this time, "always felt at home on visits. Felt a part of the team already."

The Chippewa's have consistently had strong teams in recent years and although they were not awarded a Bowl Game bid for their 6-6 record in 2013, the Chippewa's have built strong recruiting classes the past few years from their home-grown talent.  Terry discussed what stands out about the program of CMU, "how committed they are to their student athletes, not only from a football standpoint but just life beyond football." Terry also mentioned what he enjoys about the campus of Central Michigan, "the players and how much fun they have."

With the Chippewa's off to a quick start on the Class of 2015, Terry mentioned that he has yet to meet any of the other 6 commits. Leondre Terry visited the campus 1 day prior to the Spring Game, where a few of the commits and a handful of other recruits were visiting.  Terry instead was there on Friday, after receiving the offer on an earlier date, Terry would commit and described the moment he informed the coaches of CMU of his decision, "they were very excited and glad I made the decision," said Terry.

A future opponent that Central Michigan will always have on their schedule is Eastern Michigan.  Graduating also from Lansing Everett in 2013 was Jaleel Canty, Terry when asked what it could be like hen he line's up against his former Vikings CB teammate replied, "Jaleel is my guy, definitely look forward to lining up against him. That will for sure be fun."

Now with the future set for Leondre Terry and the need to earn more scholarships, no longer a need.  Terry shared what he will be doing to prepare for his time at Central Michigan, "just to get better, bigger, faster and stronger."
