Weatherford has plenty of summer stops

Arcadia (Ind.) Hamilton Heights athlete Grant Weatherford is set to up his stock as a recruit in the 2015 class when he hits the camp circuit this summer. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete talks about what he's done to improve his game and where he plans to camp this summer.

ANGOLA, Ind. - One of the top performers Saturday at RAS camp at Trine University last Saturday was athlete Grant Weatherford of Arcadia (Ind.) Hamilton Heights. And, coaches in attendance certainly took notice.

"After today, I feel like I'm on the radar more of a few schools," Weatherford said. "I'm camping at Purdue next Friday and I'm going to Indiana on June 20. I may hit up Cincinnati's camp later this summer."

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound athlete worked out Saturday as a wide receiver, though he's open to playing safety or even linebacker at the next level.

"Ohio offered me as an athlete," Weatherford said. "When college coaches ask me where I want to play in college, I tell them I'll play wherever they need me."

This offseason, Weatherford has increased his time in the weight room as well as put in time to improve his overall game.

"I've been working on technical stuff, like my route-running," Weatherford said. "I've been working on getting everything crisp."

Weatherford has also been receiving interest from a few MAC schools, including Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo.

"I'm waiting it out, seeing what options I get," Weatherford said. "I will definitley look at who's coming in to throw the ball, where I feel comfortable, what the academics are like and a place where I can grow and excel."
