Grossetti Likes the Jayhawks

Speedy wide receiver from Pennsylvania keeping his eye on Mangino and KU.

Terry Grossetti likes what he sees from the 2003 Kansas Jayhawks.

The 6-4, 190 WR from Shenango Area High School in New Castle, Pennsylvania is receiving interest from several division one schools, including Kansas. While he has yet to set a date to visit KU, the Jayhawks definitely have caught his eye.

“They had a camp down in New Castle that I went to and I really liked the coaches. I think (Coach Mark Mangino) is really nice guy. I like the receivers coach (Tyrone Dixon) too. I think he was funny.

“I’ve been watching them this year and have been impressed. Any time a team is winning and throwing the ball like that, it really impresses me.”

Grossetti has been making some good impressions of his own.

After hauling in 30 balls, for over 600 yards and 7 TD’s in his first six games this year, schools like Kentucky, Akron, Virginia Tech, Toledo, Bowling Green, and NC State are all showing interest, with Kentucky probably showing the most interest thus far.

That doesn’t make them the favorites though.

“I really don’t have a favorite right now. It’s wide open. I’m just looking for a place to play. It doesn’t matter how far away it is or if I get playing time my first year. I just want to play soon for a team that’s winning.”

Obviously at 6 feet, 4 inches tall, Grossetti has great size. The New Castle, PA standout says his hands are his best asset, though.

“I’m bigger than most DB’s and have a 38 inch vertical, but catching is probably what I do best.”

As far as comparisons go, Grossetti likens his style of play to Randy Moss ñ so long as that comparison stays strictly on the field.

“I’d say I’m like Randy Moss, based on jumping ability and the speed and everything.
But I’m only like Moss on the field and I’m not gonna cry like he does all the time.”

While their attitudes may differ, both Moss and Grossetti are putting up monster numbers for undefeated teams and because of that Grossetti will let his decision wait until early this winter.

“I’ll decide probably before Christmas. I want to take a few visits first. I’ll probably visit Kansas.”

Whether he makes a trip to Lawrence or not, Grossetti has his eye on the Jayhawks and once his season is over, he’ll likely give KU some strong consideration. Top Stories
