Gaudy month for Granier

One month ago, one of the sleeper offensive linemen in the state of Louisiana didn't have an offer to his name. After a few visits and as the recruiting cycle shifts to 2014, Bailey Granier is up to a half-dozen extensions and the list may get longer sooner than later.

It's been fast-paced for Bailey Granier.

"I got Louisiana yesterday and Vanderbilt today," he shared of his newest offers late Wednesday night.

The latest pair puts the 6-foot-7, 320-pounder from Galliano (La.) South Lafourche High at six extensions thus far.

"All within the last 30 days, at the longest span," Granier added. "This was the order, Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, Alabama, Tulane, Louisiana and Vanderbilt.

"All of them surprised me, I'm blessed."

The class of 2014 standout projects at offensive tackle, based on what many programs have been telling him during his recent surge. Each offer surprised, but he's not ready to talk standouts just yet as each school brings something notable to the table.

"They all have they're great qualities," said Granier. "Tulane and Vanderbilt, the academics are amazing. Mississippi State and Alabama have great football programs. ULL and Louisiana Tech have that small hometown feel."

The junior was most recently at Junior Day events at Alabama and Louisiana Tech, but getting out to see each program is ideal before narrowing anything down.

"After spring football in May, I'll really start thinking about where I want to go," he admitted. "I haven't been to Mississippi State and Vanderbilt, so I'll eventually try to make it up there."

Granier's criteria for his eventual school of choice is simple.

"Which ever school I'm happiest, pretty much," he said.

One school yet to offer is the LSU Tigers, the home-state school that Granier says hasn't been in much contact with him of late. He grew up somewhat of a fan.

"I'll go where's best for me," he maintained.

With notable size and a self-proclaimed mean-streak, there's likely more offers on the way for one of the best in the Bayou State.

"I have a nasty attitude," he said of his game. "And the desire to put the guy in front of me on his back." Sports NEXT currently rates Granier as a three-star prospect.
