Checking In With Graves

Maple Heights (OH) wide receiver Jeremy Graves already holds two offers and is hoping to land some more this off-season. Check out his thoughts on those schools, and who else he's been talking to.

Ohio wide receiver Jeremy Graves says his route running ability, hands and size are his strength on the field. This might be the reason the 6-foot-2, 190 pound junior already holds two offers. Here, he breaks down those schools.

Buffalo: "I went down there for a game. It's a cool place and I like the coaches. They have nice facilities. I think I would be able to contribute early in the Wide Receiver spot. They also said I might be able to play defense there too."

Cincinnati: "I've visited them 4 times. It's been one of my favorite schools growing up. I'm very used to the coaches (Butch Jones, Jahmile Addae, T.J. Weist) and I like that they run a spread offense and are successful with that. They use wide receivers in different positions. And, one of my best friends, Shaq Washington plays WR there. I also like that it's in-state."

The junior has also been talking to Bowling Green and Toledo, and believes that an offer might be coming later this spring.

During the off-season, he's been working on becoming more elusive in the open field. "I'm also working on being more physical and blocking. I want to be more explosive."

Graves will have a busy summer.

"I'm going on a bus tour to Penn State, Michigan State and pretty much all of the Big Ten schools. I'm really interested to visit Ohio State. I'm also planning on visiting Syracuse and Marshall."

And it won't stop there. The wide receiver will also be attending camps.

"I'm going to Penn State this weekend for the Elite 11 camp and Nike camp. I'm also going to Ohio State May 31st for their Elite 11."

After all of these camps are over, the junior is hoping to have some clarity as to where he'll want to end up. So, when will he choose to commit?

"It will either be this summer or next Signing Day. I know that's a big gap, but I don't want to do it in the middle of the season. I want to focus on my school team."

When he does make that decision, what will be the determining factors?

"The coaches. I want to go to a school that I'm familiar with," said Graves. "Also, the style of offense. If I do end up playing defense in college, I would probably play corner back."
