Graves Hoping For More Offers

Jeremy Graves is one of the finest wide receivers in Ohio, and he will play his senior season at Maple Heights, following his transfer from Garfield Heights. Graves, a three-star recruit, holds two offers and is hoping two strong combine showings may boost his stock.

Maple Heights is the defending Division-II state champion in Ohio, and even though they lost several top play-makers off last year's powerhouse, the recent transfer of wide receiver Jeremy Graves should aid their offense in 2011.

Graves, 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, is ranked as a three-star prospect on Scout, and he was impressive recently, both at the Best of the Midwest in Ann Arbor, and at the Raw Talent Sports combine in Cleveland.

"I think my best assets are my size and speed," Graves stated. "I ran a 4.5 forty-yard dash at Raw Talent, and I think I can run it faster. I'm working on developing stronger hands in catching the football. I run ladders every day, and I just want to be better."

"I have transferred to Maple Heights, and I'm looking forward to playing there," he added. "I want to play defense too, to show I'm an all-around football player, but wide receiver is where the colleges are recruiting me to play."

Graves already holds two offers, and is hoping to see his recruiting stock rise, following the two combine showings.

"I have two offers, from Buffalo and Cincinnati," he said. "I will be visiting there this weekend, and my brother Shaq Washington is there too. It's a great school, and I'm very interested in them. I think Cincinnati would be a great situation for me. I want to have my decision made before the start of my senior season."

"I'm starting to learn more about Buffalo, and I've talked to Coach (Charlie) Molnar," he continued. "They loved my film, and they said I'm one of the few receivers they've offered so far. Boston College, Marshall, Ohio State and a few other MAC schools are recruiting me."
