Iowa has experienced success when offering players late in the recruiting process. The Hawkeye coaches put a lot of stock in evaluating senior film.
It sounds like Class of 2012 receiver Terry Grigsby could be one of those athletes. He is coming off a productive final season at Omaha North.
Grigsby unofficially visited Iowa last week. It was his second trip to the school in the last month.
"I had a chance to talk to a couple of players," The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Grigsby said. "Shaun Prater went to Omaha Central. I know him. He showed me a good time and I just asked him a lot of questions. I was glad that I had somebody that I could go to that's from where I'm from."
"I like all of the schools in different ways," Grigsby said. "K-State and Iowa over the past month or so have probably stood out to me the most. They're showing me the most interest."
Grigsby came to Iowa City last Friday. He and his parents stayed over night then attended the Iowa-Michigan game on Saturday. They spoke with Iowa Assistant Reese Morgan.
"Right now he's just telling me that they're getting close to two more receivers," Grigsby said. "He said I'm definitely on the board. He said they're slow playing the receiver offers until like January. He said as long as I'm still talking to him and getting game invites, that they're still interested in me.
"He said to keep up on my grades. They're looking at that for the receivers on their board. He said that I have the best stats of the receivers on their big board."
Iowa is hoping Grigsby will be patient, he said.
"He told me that even if something rolls in with another school, don't react to it and just kind of wait and see what they're talking about with me," Grigsby said of Morgan. "I told myself since this whole recruiting process started that I won't necessarily jump on the first offer that I got. People think that if I was offered by Nebraska that I would just commit there. That's not true."
