Grant: 'I Think That's A Good Situation'

Patrick Grant is a bit undersized but his ability to get to the quarterback is tremendous. At 6-foot-4 and a hair under 200 pounds, Grant has the frame to become a speedy pass-rushing specialist in college.

Patrick Grant is a bit undersized but his ability to get to the quarterback is tremendous. At 6-foot-4 and a hair under 200 pounds, Grant has the frame to become a speedy pass-rushing specialist in college.

"I've now been offered by NC State, Indiana, Eastern Michigan, Minnesota, Auburn, Colorado, Jackson State, and Rutgers," Grant said. "I just got back from the Auburn camp. Me and Josh (Bynes) tore it up. We were in Coach Gran's office a lot and they treated us great. I'm going to Rutgers next week and then Colorado after that."

The Lauderdale Lakes (Fla.) Boyd Anderson standout, who had a strong performance at the Scout.com All-American Combine, says one school sticks out above the rest right now.

"Nc State is on top because they're coming after me hard," he said. "Both of their defensive ends left and went high in the draft. I think that's a good situation. After that, it's Auburn, Colorado, and Indiana."


Notes: Grant, 6-foot-4, has a playing weight of about 215 but has dropped below 200 because of track season. He is headed to the state meet this weekend to compete in the 400m event.

"The difference for me in football is my speed," he said. "I just run by opposing tackles. I know college will be a lot different but my speed is my biggest strength right now."

The talented pass rusher finished his junior season with 48 tackles, 12 sacks, and two caused fumbles.
