Kyle Griswould is an athlete from Shaw High School that stands in at 5'10" and 180 pounds. He has been timed at 4.47 and 4.49 in the 40 yard dash at a recent Scott Kennedy Combine. Kyle is being recruited at wide receiver, running back, and some schools like him as a sort of utility back lining up at both. Marshall once was looking at him as a defensive back and Georgia Tech is recruiting Kyle at their A-back position which is a slot back.

What schools are interested in Kyle?

"UGA, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Alabama, Marshall, Troy, Florida State, Middle Tennessee State, LSU, Boston College, Indiana, and Virginia are some of the school sending me stuff."

Has he had any offers yet?

"No, later on I will though. Troy and Marshall should offer soon. Georgia Tech offered my friend, John Drew, and had talked to me about offering me too. But, I haven't been in touch with them again about it. South Carolina and Alabama are also very interested."

Who are Kyle's favorites?

"Any SEC school would be good. Florida and Georgia Tech are my top two."

Has Kyle been to any Junior Days and does have future plans to attend them?

"I went to ones at Georgia Tech and Auburn. I will be going to Troy this weekend. I may go to UGA and maybe Marshall in the future."

How was his visit to Atlanta?

"Tech's Junior Day was good. I met all the coaches and we watched film. Coach (Jeff) Monken told me that they don't have a problem playing freshmen."

What are the main factors Griswould is looking for in a school?

"I'll be looking for where I stand on the depth chart, a good education, who they play-like if the competition is tough, and how the coaches treat the players."

Does he think any of these schools might meet these factors?

"I know Florida probably does. And Georgia Tech, they seem like a great program, I really liked it there especially their inspirational speaker they have (chaplain Derrick Moore). That's all for now that I see."

What is Kyle's best attribute as a player?

"My quickness. Yeah, but my teammates say my best is vision, too."

What is Kyle working on to better his play?

"I'm working on my breakaway speed. I'm running track, which really helped me last year and is doing the same for me this year."

Does he have his highlight tape out to schools yet? "I'm sending my tape out soon to some schools. I think my coach just sent one off to Tech recently."

If the school close to home, Georgia Tech, gave him an offer soon, what would Kyle's reaction be?

"Yeah, they have my major I want too. I want to do architecture. I would probably commit on the spot if I got that offer."
