The Husker motivation

After a 38 catch last season, for over 250 yards and three touchdowns, Omaha North wide receiver Terry Grigsby is hearing from Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State, South Dakota, Missouri, and somewhat from Nebraska. That is a problem in Grigsby's mind.

Featured in our next upcoming magazine as one of the best wide receivers in state, Omaha North's Terry Grigsby is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, and runs a 4.5 forty.

After a 38 catch last season, for over 250 yards and three touchdowns, the junior is hearing from Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State, South Dakota, Missouri, and somewhat from Nebraska. That is a problem in Grigsby's mind.

The junior is a good friend with former Husker Niles Paul. The two's fathers have been best friends for a while and as young boys, Paul and Grigsby used to hang out together.

"I'm a little disappointed because Nebraska was the only school around here to not invite me to their spring game," said the junior. "Niles and I work out at there every summer and I know all the players. I'm really familiar with the program and I have been there every year since his freshman year. I already feel part of it and then they don't even invite me to the game, it was kind of disappointing.

"But, it has always been a dream to play at Nebraska since I was little. I'm already using it as motivation during the off-season."

While the 2012 prospect was hoping for more attention from Nebraska this spring, it hasn't deterred him from making plans to check out the Huskers camp in June. He will also participate at Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, and more.

"All the schools are kind of the same to me. Kansas State and Iowa sending me the most mail. But last week, Mankato State sent me a personal email and mail saying they were very close to offering me. They said I was the best athlete in the Midwest, so if anybody offers first, it will be them," said Grigsby. "I think should start seeing some (offers) after May evaluations. I have been working really hard. I hope so at least. I was one of the top wide receivers in the state last year, so I'm pretty confident they are going to come."

Omaha North finished the year 4-6 last year. Grigsby admits this year's team should be very young, with only 10 to 12 seniors on the roster.

"Leadership is key with me this offseason. That is what my coaches and I have been talking about," said Grigsby. "I have also been trying to get stronger on their recommendation."

Grigsby runs track and reports a 38 inch vertical.
