2013 Recruit Considering Maryland Offer

Colby Grant, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound running back, talks high school, Terps, and official visits.

Colby Grant has a decision to make.

He has to choose which school- Towson or Maryland- he wants to take an official visit to before national signing day on February 6th.

Grant has already taken unofficial visits to both schools during this recruiting season. He's pleased with how both visits went.

“They were real cool,” Grant said. “I talked to the coaches and they showed me a lot of love.” Grant also mentioned that he toured both team's facilities and came away impressed.

Grant has already taken an official visit to Robert Morris on Friday, January 25th. Prior to his visit, Grant asserted he was keeping his options open.

“I'm just checking [Robert Morris] out,” Grant said.

Grant declared his high school season a success as Susquehanna Township (Harrisburg, PA) made the playoffs for the third straight year.

Our season went good actually,” Grant said. “This was our third time to the playoffs, back to back. Last year we made it to the second round. This year we made it to the third round. The team we lost to was undefeated. It's not like we lost to a bad team, but I think we could have beat them if we had played them somewhere else. It was mud and raining and all that.”

Grant had a standout season as well.

“I had 1,500 rushing yards, 169 carries, and 25 touchdowns,” Grant said. He also added that he accumulated over 2,000 all-purpose yards, had four kick return touchdowns, and three receiving touchdowns on the year.

For Susquehanna Township, on offense Grant played primarily as a running back, but also lined up in the slot from time to time.

Grant said that college coaches have told him that his freshman year he'll be used in a variety of ways: as a kick returner, slot receiver, and even as a running back. However, Grant added that college coaches have also told him that as he becomes older, he'll start to get more carries and see more game action as a running back.

Grant, who had no offers as of November 2nd, said he now has three from Robert Morris, Towson, and Maryland. Those three schools also make up most of his his top four. The other school rounding out that list is West Virginia.

Grant will likely commit on February 6th, national signing day, but if he's really impressed by his visit to Towson or Maryland he said there's a chance he'll commit on the spot. More than likely though Terp fans will have to wait until Feb. 6 to find out who he commits to.
