Hroniss Grasu, 6-4, 260, will be a senior at Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, Calif., and indicated that he received an email this morning from Oregon line coach Steve Greatwood indicating that a letter from Head Coach Chip Kelly offering a scholarship is on the way. The Ducks are recruiting Grasu as a center and interestingly, Grasu's teammate and good buddy, Bryan Bennett just so happens to be Crespi's signal caller and recently verbally committed to Oregon.
Grasu attended Oregon's camp this summer and that gave the Ducks a chance to see him in action. Grasu indicates it has always been his dream to play in the Pac-10 and now he has three offers from Pac-10 schools to chose from. Washington and Washington State have also offered him, plus he has offers from Nevada, Wyoming and UNLV. Even though it isn't quite July yet, Grasu would like to end the recruiting process before football season starts.
" I want to commit before the season starts so I can concentrate on Crespi winning a championship," said Grasu. "So yeah, I really want to commit."
Now of course the question is where. Would the fact that Bennett has already committed to Oregon influence him at all?
Bryan and I have always have talked that we want to play together in college," admitted Grasu. "It's a great feeling to know I have the offer (from Oregon) so we'll see what happens."
Grasu then went onto say that having Bennett going to Oregon would not be the only reason for him choosing Oregon.
"Coach Greatwood is one of the top line coach in the country and I also would like to play for Coach Kelly," confessed Grasu about his offer from Oregon. "I'm excited about the offer."
