98 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Terrell Clinkscales

May 25, 2014;

Terrell Clinkscales (b. June 9, 1992) is that best kind of recruit — one we stole from Nebraska late in the process.

… During his freshman year at Grand Rapids Community College, Clinkscales played the 2011 season for the Raiders prior to the college’s discontinuing the program. He saw time in six games, registering 13 tackles, including six for loss and four sacks, as he helped GRCC to finish with an 11-0 record and a No. 3 national ranking.
