Florida State redshirt junior wide receiver Tamorrion Terry went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft and signed with the Seattle Seahawks shortly after the draft ended.

An explosive deep threat, Terry ranks tenth all-time in school history in receiving yards, is tied for 13th in touchdowns with Craphonso Thorpe and Travis Rudolph, and he ranks 21st alongside Anquan Boldin in receptions in the Seminole record books.

After redshirting as a true freshman, Terry led FSU in receiving touchdowns in 2018 with 8 and caught 35 passes for 744 yards. During a tumultuous 2019 season for the program as a whole, Terry shined with 1,188 receiving yards, 9 scores, and 60 receptions.

When second-year head coach Willie Taggart was fired in early November, Terry responded with the most productive stretch of his career. He racked up 542 yards in the final four games of the season for the Odell Haggins-led Seminoles.

Only five players in Florida State history (Ron Sellers, Peter Warrick, Rashad Greene, Marvin Snoop Minnis, and Barry Smith) have registered more receiving yards in a season than the Ashburn, Ga. product did in 2019.

Like his teammate Marvin Wilson, Terry returned in 2020 to play for Mike Norvell in his first season at the helm. A knee injury forced Terry to miss four out of nine games, but he had surgery in the middle of the season and returned to action for one game against Pittsburgh. He had 289 yards and one score, a 48-yard bomb versus Notre Dame, to go along with 23 catches in 2020.

One of the best moments of Terry’s career came in his redshirt freshman campaign late in the season against No. 20 Boston College. Trailing 21-16 with under two minutes to play, Terry caught a 73-yard touchdown to save the Noles. Although it was spoiled the next week, the 22-21 victory over BC in 2018 could have helped preserve Florida State’s record 36-year consecutive bowl streak.
