Corey Grant unstoppable in tourney

Corey Grant, Scout.com four-star running back from Opelika, Ala., was unstoppable in the 7-on-7 camp held at Oxford High School. This is the type of playmaker schools like Alabama, Auburn and Florida are hoping to add to their class. He talked about the schools and when a decision is expected.



"We have been doing pretty good out here," said Corey Grant. "Our defense has done pretty good. Our offense needs to pick it up a little bit. I think I still have a lot of room for improvement. There are some things that I really need to work on."

Grant has traveled to Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Florida during the summer. He has recently narrowed his choices to three schools.

"Right now my finalists are Auburn, Florida and Alabama," he said. "They are all even right now. I am not leaning one way or the other. I like Florida a lot. They have great coaches, great facilities and academics. It's a good place to go."

"Alabama and Auburn are about the same as Florida. You really can't go wrong with any of them. They have great coaches and great facilities. All the schools have great motivators on-and-off the field."

"I really don't feel any pressure one way or the other. I am just trying to make the right decision."

The time-frame remains the same for the class 6A 100m winner.

"Right now I am not sure if I am going to take anymore visits," Grant said. "I do plan a decision before the start of the season. I am just trying to go wherever fits me best, and go to a place where I can enjoy the next four to five years of my life."

"I am getting recruited by all the schools as a hybrid-type back. I bring a lot of speed to the table. I am not really a big back. I am a hybrid back that can both run and catch the ball. I really bring a lot of speed."
