Top WR Prospect Eyes Clemson

Our recruiting profiles continue with another strong WR prospect from the state of South Carolina. The Tigers offered and are considered to be in his top 5, but several out of state schools are breathing heavily down his door. He's looking for a high-flying offense and a great college atmosphere, need I say more?

Camden wide receiver Kelvin Grant has seen the steady list of offers already run up to about 24.

Schools like Georgia, Georgia Tech, Penn State, South Carolina, Clemson, and Florida all have been on hard on the recruiting trail at this point.

"I would say my top 5 are Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Florida," says Grant, who camped at Penn State, Pittsburgh, and Clemson this past summer.

Last season, Kelvin Grant who is 6-2, weighs 207 lbs, runs a 4.4 40-yard dash and has 37 inch vertical jump caught 42 passes for 887 yards and 7 TDs.

The big thing he is looking for in a school is offensive philosophy, "I want to go somewhere with a great atmosphere and preferably throws the ball around a lot."

Kelvin reminds me a lot of Rod Gardner, he is fairly big receiver and he has the ability to go up and grab the long ball with his great vertical leap. Speaking of jumping, Kelvin also excels in track as he finished second in South Carolina State AAA championships in 110-meter high hurdles.

Grant also has been a very strong kick returner for Camden, as he returned a punt 61-yards for a touchdown this past season.

Many experts around the country refer to Kelvin Grant as being a strong, athletic football player. He is currently ranked as the #11 prospect at wide receiver in the country by Max Emfinger (behind #7 Charles Ben and #3 Mario Raley) and #11 in the state of South Carolina by SCPrepFootball.

The Tigers certainly have a great chance of landing Grant, and with all of his athletic ability and strength, a lot of teams will be after this kid as he begins to get more national recognition.
