Missouri ends verbal commit’s recruitment after arrest

Thursday February 4th, 2016

Missouri has ended the recruitment of verbal commit Marvin Terry after his arrest on multiple assault charges and warrants, reports the Kansas City Star.

Terry, a linebacker from the Dallas area, was arrested Jan. 25. He remains in Dallas County Jail on $34,500 bond, the Star reports.

Missouri cannot comment publicly on specific players until they sign national letters of intent. National signing day came and went Wednesday without Terry putting pen to paper, and the Star reports that the Tigers have no intention of further pursuing or signing him.

According to the report, Terry was arrested for several incidents dating back to July 9, when he allegedly pushed his pregnant girlfriend to the ground during a “verbal altercation.” Prosecutors issued an arrest warrant July 31, and Terry was arraigned Aug. 18 on one count of assault. He was arrested again Jan. 5 for pushing the same woman, the mother of his child, and allegedly hitting and kicking her. An arrest warrant was issued Jan. 14. Terry was arrested Jan. 25 on another assault charge.

During Terry’s arraignment on Jan. 25, two more assault charges were added.

Scout.com rated Terry as a three-star recruit and the 24th overall outside linebacker in the nation.
