"Sunday I came down with some of my coaches and one of my teammates," Corey Grant said. "What can I say, Florida is a great place to be. I worked out for Coach Kenny Carter and he taught me some great things about footwork, catching and route running. Catching balls out of the backfield is a big part of what they want to do with the running backs and they see me as a slot/running back type player for them to utilize my speed."
Grant is not in a rush to make a formal announcement at this time but did have rave reviews for the school and football program.
"It does feel like home in a way. I got that feeling a little bit when I was running around in The Swamp. You can say that it's like a match made in heaven with what I do from the running back spot and with what they do on the offensive side of the ball. I run the same kind of offense at my school so I believe the transition would be very easy. I am still taking things slow and have no time table for a decision it could be over the Summer or during or after my senior season. Florida might be the last visit that I take though I am not sure just yet I need to speak with my parents about that but I am going to keep a very close eye on the Gators."
Speaking of his parent who were not able to attend, Grant is working on a plan to get them to Gainesville over the summer.
"I am not sure if I will be back for Friday Night Lights or not but I will take another trip to Florida over the summer so my parents can come and check it out."
