Things Picking Up for Virginia WR

Davon Grayson missed most of last season with a hand injury. However, after strong spring and summer performances, numerous schools are pursuing the Kings Fork High (Suffolk, Va.) wide receiver.

Davon Grayson only played in three games last season, but it was clear that he was a special player. Over the past couple months his recruitment has exploded.

"Right now, I have five offers," said Grayson. "I have – VMI, Old Dominion, East Carolina, James Madison, and Furman."

Those are not the only schools interested in the 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver.

"I might be getting offers from Maryland and William & Mary soon," he said. "I think Maryland will offer first. I am also hearing from Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Virginia. There are a few other schools that are recruiting me, but those are the main ones that have contacted me."

The rest of the summer will be a busy time for Grayson.

"I am going to camps at Maryland, Virginia Tech, Wake (Forest), and William & Mary," he said.

After Grayson gets done with all of the camps, he will likely be making some major decisions.

"I would like to get down to my top five by the time our season starts and possibly even commit by then," he said. "I would really like to make my decision at that point, so I just focus on my team and not worry about me."

The Kings Fork star is not ready to name a leader, but there is a group of schools that have made an impression.

"The schools that have really made an impression on me are ECU, Maryland, JMU, and ODU," Grayson said. "But I still have a lot of respect for the other two schools (VMI and Furman), because those are the first two schools that believed in me and actually offered."

There is a lot to like about Grayson's game, but there are a couple of specific things that he feels he brings to the table.

"I think I am a good teammate and I come through when my team needs me," he said.

Grayson knows what he is looking for in a school.

"First, I want to go to a great school," he said. "I also want to go to place where my mom can get down to my games and somewhere that feels like home."

Although the season is a little over a month away, Grayson already knows what he wants to accomplish during his senior campaign.

"I really don't have any individual goals," he said. "I just want to help my team get to the playoffs – whether it's kick returner, punt returner, wide receiver, tailback, cornerback, or safety – I just want my team to be the first to leave Kingsport with a boom."
