Shula Makes In-Home Visit

Scout.com three-star running back Terry Grant received a visit from several Alabama coaches, and he has returned from a visit with Florida State.

"Coach Shula, coach [Buddy] Wyatt and Sparky [Woods] made an in-home visit with me last week," said Terry Grant from Lumberton, (Miss.). "The visit went pretty good. I like all of them a lot. They were telling me how they still wanted me to come to Alabama."

"I let them them know that I was still very interested in coming to Alabama. Right now, I have four schools equal on my list. They are Alabama, Florida State, Southern Miss and Clemson."

Grant was planning to make his college decision this week, but will wait until after one last visit.

"I was going to announce my decision on Wednesday, but I am going to hold off," he said. "I am going to take my final official visit to Memphis. I will probably decide early next week or on National Signing Day."

Grant had an impressive senior campaign rushing for over 2,700 yards and scoring 35 touchdowns.

The Scout.com three-star back took an official visit to Florida State over the weekend and said, "The Florida State visit went pretty good. Everything down there went real good. I enjoyed the visit. The coaches were real cool. I am very familiar with them. I have been down there the past three years for camps. They already know everything about me, and I know everything about them. I had great time with all the players they were real cool."

The Magnolia State's Mr.Football will consider one key aspect when choosing his college destination.

"All the schools are basically the same," Grant said. "I love all the atmospheres, the stadiums, campuses, coaches and players. There is not one particular thing that stands out about each program. I like all those schools for all those reasons. The thing I am most concerned about is which college cares about me the most."

"I want to know for sure that if something happens like I get hurt in a game, I could still be a student at the university. I just want to make sure that if I ended up getting hurt I would still be able to attend school."

Grant has welcomed head coaches from Alabama, Clemson and Southern Miss over the past week. Coach Bobby Bowden will make an in-home visit Tuesday night.
