Georgia DT Commits to Bulls After WVU Game

After an exciting weekend the Bulls cap it off with a verbal commitment, the ninth for the '08 class. Find out who it is and why the big D-Tackle chose the Bulls. Only on!

After the Bulls beat number 5 West Virginia on Friday there was a big celebration on the field and it eventually spilled over to the locker room. That is where defensive tackle Cory Grissom decided the time was right to tell the South Florida staff he was ready to commit.

"I told coach Canales that I was ready to commit." Grissom added, "He brought me over to coach Leavitt and I told him the same thing. He said that he was excited to have me."

Grissom is a 6-foot-2, 275 pound defensive tackle from Troupe HS in LaGrange Georgia. His strengths are his size and speed which he uses to fire off the ball, already this season he has 2 sacks in only 4 games.

Friday's win over West Virginia was no surprise to Grissom, he told USFNation three weeks ago that he expected the Bulls to beat Auburn. He says he's been following the team and he knows what they are capable of.

"I picked them to win. Their defense came to play and that was the difference in the game."

Grissom's decision came down to two teams, Arkansas and South Florida were the favorites out of the offers he had.

"I had offers from USF, Arkansas, Troy, North Carolina, UAB and Central Michigan."

After his decision Grissom says the recruiting process is over and the only visit he will take is to Tampa in January.

"I'm glad it's over, now I can concentrate on football and school work."

So far this year Grissom has mostly A's and B's and will be taking the ACT for a second time in December. Stick with USFNation as we follow the Bulls newest commit through his high school season.
