Rebels hot after Magnolia receiver

The Cleveland (MS) receiver burst on to the scene this summer after playing in a run dominated offense last season. How did this transpire?

Terrell attended the Ole Miss Sr Camp, measured in at 6' 2", 205 and ran a smoking 4.47 forty and actually galloped under a 4.5 forty on all three attempts.

Grant was offered by Ole Miss at the camp, and Mississippi State increased their scholarship offer from a greyshirt to a full scholarship. Now it is time to decide which school is the best fit.

"I need more information on Ole Miss and Mississippi State," stated Terrell Grant. "Both schools have offered me, but I need more information before I commit to either school."

What type of information does the talented WR need?

"My main concern is education. I need to know the strengths of both schools. I also will focus on the environment. I will go to games at both schools and watch the fans, players, and coaches. The energy will be important to me. I want to play in a big time environment. I'm going to watch the WR groups at each school. Right now, I'm just working on getting info."

Has Grant spoken with any coaches recently?

"I called Coach Nutt the other day. He was getting ready for practice so we could not talk very long, but he told me to take my time on my decision. He wants me to make the best decision for me and that's important. He told me he knew that I'd like Ole Miss. He told me about the campus, team, school and the girls (laugh). He's a real laid back guy. He said that they needed tall receivers and that I could help the team out. MSU has been staying in contact. I talked to them the day before. They wanted me to know that I was a top priority for their class, and that the only reason they offered me a greyshirt the first time is because they did not have any good film on me. But once they looked at some good film on me, they said they had to have me."

What's next for Cleveland High product?

"I hope my Uncle and I can go to the Memphis game. I know that is the first game at Ole Miss and it will be crazy. I plan on going. I still talk to Derrick Herman. He plays at Ole Miss and he tells me how great it is. He wants me up there. No one knew about Derrick last year and he held Julio Jones to one catch in the MS/AL all-star game. That game really helped him out and showcased his ability. I'm going to show everybody this fall what kind of ability I have too. I can't wait for our first game."
