Sam Grant is one of Ohio's top tight end prospects, and the Lakewood St. Edward senior is still receiving offers and trying to narrow down his recruitment. Grant, 6-foot-6, 235-pounds, committed to Boston College last summer, but has re-opened his recruitment. Tuesday, he learned Oklahoma issued an offer, and he has definite interest.
"Oklahoma offered today," Grant stated. "I was in contact with Coach Kittle before I committed to Boston College. They had their needs filled at tight end and were short on scholarships at the time, but things changed for both Oklahoma and me. They need a tight end that can both catch and block."
The three-star tight end took the time to update his current situation with Boston College, and also discuss what other teams have caught his eye.
"In November I started to have doubts about my commitment. I don’t want to go into the details but a lot had changed since June," he admitted. "I was honest with Boston College and they asked that I wait until the end of my season before taking any visits, so I did. I contacted a few schools based upon their offense and how they use the tight end. Arkansas and Oklahoma were two of those schools, and now both have offered. Michigan was the one that really surprised me when they re-offered because I didn’t contact them. I didn’t see that one coming at all but was pleasantly surprised."
"I’ve taken officials to Boston College, Michigan, and Arkansas," he continued. "I can tell you that all three visits were awesome, and that I have some serious thinking to do. All the schools have so much to offer. I can see myself playing at any one of these four schools. I need to just start narrowing things down and figure out what is most important to me."
Grant admitted that his recruitment has been both exciting and stressful, and he is eager to have his choice finalized.
"My phone is ringing constantly with reporters wanting to know what I’m going to do," Grant said. "I honestly don’t know at this point in time so I don’t answer it. I hope to know sooner than later. Really, I can’t wait to be done with the process and know where I’m going to go. I wish it wasn’t a dead period right now."
"I’m not sure if I will visit Oklahoma," he continued. "I can tell you for sure that it would be my last visit, even if another school offers. I will be choosing between these four schools, and I want to make a decision as soon as possible for everyone involved."
