Lloyd Grogan has seen a tremendous growth in his interest over the last week, as the May evaluation process comes to an end. It's evident that his highlight film has shown a lot of good things, with offers from Georgia Tech, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana, Baylor and Memphis recently sending in offers.
One of the biggest things about Grogan is his versatility. He finished his junior season with 700 yards rushing on 101 carries. On the defensive side of the ball, he finished with 69 tackles, including 21 for a loss. He also had three interceptions, two forced fumbles. Honors-wise, he finished as a first-team all-district selection, was conference MVP at linebacker and a first-team all-state selection for defensive back. His production gives a good idea of the kind of versatility he provides.
Pittsburgh is another one of his latest offers—a school that has extended 19 verbal offers to prospects in Louisiana so far, with more likely on the way. He is still just getting to know Pitt a little bit, but has a few interesting first impressions of what he's picked up so far.
"I heard they have the number-one offense in the nation," Grogan added. "I heard they have a good campus, that's about it. I don't know too much about them yet, but that's just what the coaches are telling us."
Grogan is considering a visit to Pittsburgh—probably in August—just to check out the campus. He is expected to attend an Ultimate 100 camp in Atlanta, and will also be at prospect camps at Georgia Tech, LSU and Louisiana Tech.
Grogan has a good number of offers, and some versatility. He also says there are some schools still trying to figure out what position they want him for—just the fact they want him.
"All the schools, they say I can play safety (in college)," Grogan said. "Only one school has offered me to play running back. LSU likes me as a linebacker.
"Our spring (football) is over. I'm just laying low until summer (conditioning) starts. I'm just trying to get to some of these camps."
