Fla. QB Prospect Home From UK Camp

One of the best quarterback prospects in the state of Florida, whom had an outstanding summer camp at Auburn, gave us an update on his recruitment this afternoon. See what the latest news is on this possible UK quarterback of the future.

Valrico (FL) is home to one of the fastest rising quarterback prospects in the state of Florida in Jason Grant.

"Jason has traditionally been a late bloomer," Jason's father, Larry Grant told Inside Kentucky this afternoon. "Some of the bigger programs in the area have gotten all the exposure early."

"This is Jason's first year he's really focused on camps," the elder Grant explained. "A lot of coaches want to see how he performs the first 3 or 4 games before making a decision on an offer."

The 6-foot-2 200 pound, Grant recently returned from the University of Kentucky senior camp.

"Overall, I thought I did pretty good," Jason Grant concluded. "I increased my vertical to 28."

"My shuttle was a 4.4."

Grant threw for a staggering 1100 yards in just 7 games last season for Freedom High School in North Tampa

Although he had a nice camp, he did not leave Lexington with a scholarship offer.

"I didn't throw as good as I wanted too," Grant proclaimed.

That could be attributed to the conditions, as apparently their was some issues with the balls.

"I had trouble gripping the ball," the Bloomingdale High School star explained. "Then I went and got my own ball and started throwing good."

"Like you saw me at the Auburn camp."

The Auburn camp was where Jason really came on the seen, showing a tremendous throwing ability and quick release. He has good feet and an almost perfect quarterback technique.

Jason's father chimed in on his collegiate choices; "If I had to say; I would say his first choice would be Auburn. Then Alabama and Kentucky."

"We're originally from Alabama and we've always been 'Bama fans," Jason's father continued. "Coach Shula knows about him and continues to send him stuff."

"We visited with him before and he told Jason he has very good techique and they would be in contact."
