Grant Haley In Depth

The Florida Gators hosted numerous top 2013 prospects last weekend as they defeated Les Miles and the LSU Tigers. Not to be out done were the 2014 prospects also in attendance last Saturday afternoon.

One such prospect was cornerback/running back Grant Haley. Haley checks in at 5'10 and 180-pounds from Atlanta (GA) Lovett School and was on hand to watch as the Gators knocked off the Tigers.

"I was at Florida this past weekend. It was fun, crazy game and a nice atmosphere and I enjoyed myself. I'm going down when they play South Carolina and I think I'm going to LSU this weekend but not sure yet."

Haley talked about what the game of college football means to him.

"College football means almost everything to me besides my family. It's what I've wanted to do since I first knew what football actually was and I've found that all the hard work that I've put in over the summer is working off very positively."

The Lovett School is coached my Mike Muschamp, the brother of Gator head coach Will Muschamp and had this to say about his standout two way player.

"Grant is a super-star kid. He has been blessed with a lot of natural ability. What makes Grant so special is his work ethic. He never misses a work out, and he is usually the example that we point to for the rest of our kids as to how hard you should work when you are in the weight room or on the track. He is hungry and humble. He has handled the attention and the accolades the way we would hope he would. As a DB, Grant has great ball skills. In other words, when the ball is in the air, he plays it extremely well. He times his jumps, he has great awareness, and he has tremendous body control. When you combine those skills with his speed and quickness, he becomes what everyone wants in a DB. As a RB, he has great vision. He sees things that most of us don't, and he has the speed and quickness to get into a hole that the rest of us not only didn't see, but had no chance of ever getting to. He has great hands as well. In last year's GAC Game, he had two long runs for touchdowns, both cutbacks away from the design of the play, a kickoff return for a touchdown that cutback across the field, and he threw a touchdown pass."
