Grigsby on Iowa Radar

Terry Grigsby got a look at Iowa last weekend when the Hawkeyes took on Northwestern at Kinnick Stadium. He liked it so much, he's planning a return trip. Find out what the Iowa coaches have told him and get the latest on his recruitment in this update.

Iowa approached the 2012 recruiting class needing wide receivers. The Hawkeyes have landed one verbal commitment - Cameron Wilson of Ohio.

Opportunities exist for other wideouts at which coaches are looking. Terry Grigsby feels like he's in the picture for an Iowa scholarship.

Grigsby unofficially visited the Hawkeyes on Saturday. He watched them knock off Northwestern under the lights at Kinnick Stadium.

"I feel like I stand great with Iowa and I have a good feel for things down there," the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder from Omaha (NE) North High said. "From my understanding they are taking around three-four receivers. Coach (Reese) Morgan said that I'm a big receiver with good hands and great speed and that I run good routes."

Grigsby is still waiting on his first scholarship offer. He's making a case for one this season with 41 receptions for 780 yards and 10 touchdowns heading into his last game. He reports a 4.5-second, 40-yard dash.

"It was great," Grigsby said of his Iowa visit. "I loved it there. The fans and atmosphere were amazing. Coach Morgan said he liked my film and he's going to keep in touch. And the he's looking forward to keep recruiting me.

"Since they were one of the first schools to pursue me, I'd be willing to wait a while for a (scholarship) offer."

Home-state Nebraska also has shown interested in Grigsby.

"Nebraska is but isn't a possibility," Grigsby said. "Being a Nebraska kid, I'd love to go there but not enough to walk on. I wouldn't sit around and wait on an offer from there."

Grigsby reports that he's hearing from Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Nebraska and Ohio on a weekly basis. He plans on getting out to see more schools in the coming weeks.

"I'll go down to Iowa State this weekend after my ACT," he said. "I'm going to the Nebraska-Iowa game and one other Iowa game. And I'm gonna head down to Kansas State for one of their late games."
