In the last 24 hours, Penn State hired Marques Hagans, their new wide receivers coach, and zeroed in on a wide receiver that they’d like Hagans to eventually coach.
On Monday morning, the Nittany Lions extended an offer to 2024 3-star wide receiver Terrell Anderson from Grimsley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina. The 6’3″, 185-pound wideout has previously received offers from Auburn, East Carolina, Michigan, North Carolina, NC State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Washington and West Virginia.
Moments after getting the news from Penn State assistant Ty Howie, Anderson spoke with Nittany Sports Now about the news.
“Getting this offer from Penn State really means a lot to me,” said Anderson. “Penn State has actually been recruiting me for a year and half now and knew the offer would eventually come. I just had to be patient and wait my time. Coach Slim and Coach Howie have developed a really good relationship and when they told me I got the offer, the first thing I did was tell my mom.”
“Coach Howie told me that I have the best film in the state and that Penn State needs a receiver like me.”
Last season for Grimsley High School, Anderson had 64 catches for 1,254 yards and 11 receiving touchdowns and collected 1,800 all-purpose yards. He’s a big target that believes his big play ability will continue in college.
“Strengths of my game, I believe I have a lot of speed and I cover a lot of ground fast. I’m very good at going up in the air to get the ball. Really, wherever my quarterback puts the ball at, I can go get it and make a play on it. I’m also strong making a play after I catch the ball, along with breaking press coverage off the line and making the defensive back miss.”

Anderson tells NSN that he’s hearing a lot right now from North Carolina, NC State, Tennessee and Central Florida just offered him a couple of days ago.
“I plan on dropping my Top 10 in February,” said Anderson. “In the near future, I have plans to visit Auburn, Virginia Tech, South Carolina and this weekend, I’ll be visiting Central Florida and South Florida. I’ve also scheduled a visit out to Oklahoma in April, so I have a lot of visits planned coming up.”
Since he received the offer today, Anderson tells us that he plans on having a conversation with Coach Howie about scheduling a visit to Penn State at the end of March.
