Midlands Focus 2015: J.T. Granato

FOX Sports NEXT has the update on Kinkaid quarterback J.T. Granato from Houston, Texas. We caught up with his coach to get the rundown on what this talented sophomore has going on as it pertains to recruiting and what skills his quarterback brings to the table.

In recent years, the Kinkaid School in Houston, TX has become a place that produces a solid quarterback or two. One is already on the roster at a Big 12 program and another is coming up in the ranks and will be one of the top recruits in the 2015 class.

J.T. Granato put up some significant numbers even though he split playing time last year with a senior signal caller. Now, he has the squad all to himself as he has proven that he can get the job done on several occasions.

"He (Granato) is very accurate and his pocket presence is unbelievable," Kinkaid coach Stephen Hill said.

Those are great traits to bring to the table and know that college coaches have already taken notice of the skills that the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Granato brings to the table.

"There are no official offers from Granato yet, but LSU has inquired and Granato has visited Texas A&M and Houston," Hill said. "Coach Pat Fitzgerald from Northwestern is high on him. Fitzgerald's offensive coordinator is coming down to watch Granato throw in person."

Size, arm strength and accuracy are some of the comments that Hill has heard from college coaches as to what they like most about Granato. With that, it's clear that Granato is one to keep an eye on as the recruiting process has been picking up for a number of top sophomores over the past couple of years. 

In a split season, Granato was 127-of-207 for 1,557 yards with 14 touchdowns to seven interceptions.
