Attention air traffic control, Washington quarterback ready for take off.
One talented quarterback has been flowing beneath the radar, that appears about to change due to his performance in an earlier Elite 11 Camp.
Garrett Grayson from Vancouver Washington is seeing interest and his stock rise after he earned the Golden Gun Award for being the most accurate passer.
"It feels really good," Grayson told InsideTennessee.com Monday night. "My hard work is starting to pay off. I thought I had a great Elite 11 camp and interest is starting to pick up a lot, word is getting out."
One school that has shown some interest is the University of Tennessee, Grayson's voice got more excited when asked about the Volunteers.
"I would love to play football at the University of Tennessee," Grayson said. "I have always been a big fan of Peyton Manning, he has always been a big role model for me, to play at the same school that he did would be an incredible honor."
Grayson has listed Tennessee as one of his schools of interest and although Rocky Top is over 3.000 miles away, it appears it wouldn't deter him from making the trip.
"I have heard so many great things about the school," Grayson explained. "They play in the best conference in the country, I would love to be a Volunteer, it would be a dream come true."
Grayson currently has no official offers, but hopes that will change in the near future.
"Washington and Washington State is showing a lot of interest," Grayson said. "I don't care how far a school is, a chance to play in the SEC would be worth the distance."
Grayson, who has received some letters from the UT coaching staff, hopes that the coaching staff is aware of his recent success at the Elite 11 camp.
"Hopefully they will find out more about me," Grayson said. "I would love to come down and take a visit and meet them face to face. I'm expecting Lane Kiffin to be an incredible college head coach."
Grayson hasn't traveled too far east, Texas is as far east as he has journeyed.
"I have heard so many great things about the south," Grayson said. "I hear that they really love their football there. Hopefully I will get a chance to experience it first hand."
