VIDEO: FSU WR Tamorrion Terry On Why He Came Back, "I Wanted To Be Great"


Players in both college football and the NFL are both opting out. The final count for professional players ended at 69 while the list for college is still growing. The Florida Gators have two players in Kadarius Toney and Jacob Copeland who see benefits to sitting out this season.

One player for the rival Florida State Seminoles who won't be opting out is wide receiver Tamorrion Terry. Terry, speaking with the media, explained why opting out for him wasn't an option.

"Why opt out? I came back for a reason, that reason -- to not be average. I wanted to be great. One of the reasons I came back -- to win ball games and not to be average."

As a redshirt sophomore, Terry last season caught 60 passes for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns.

His teammate, Marvin Wilson, is also sticking with the team this season stating that he still has work to do in Tallahassee. Wilson, however did take some shots at college players deciding to opt out for the NFL saying, "I didn't come back to just sit out or opt out and go prepare for the league. I think that's just taking the easy way out."

Florida State is entering their first year under new head coach Mike NorvellIn four years at Memphis, Norvell went 38-16 with two 10-win seasons. Norvell replaces Willie Taggart who took a job at FAU after less than two full seasons with the Noles.
