Dearborn Heights (River Rouge), Mich. 2017 Athlete, Jairus Grissom has been a top target for the Toledo Rockets for several months now. The 6'2", 200-pound Grissom now holds well over ten Division-One offers from schools like Houston, NC State, and Syracuse. However, there are three teams that are really standing out for the freakishly athletic, Grissom.
Right now, my top three are Toledo, Indiana, and Memphis," Grissom stated on his recruitment, "Toledo is definitely in consideration, I'll be there this summer for a camp and I talk to the coaches everyday. They're recruiting me at quarterback and I'm very comfortable with the coaching staff."
Grissom, a two-way athlete at both quarterback at safety at River Rouge High School, says he was being recruited at safety but now nearly all schools are after his gunslinging talents. The 4.60 40-yard dash time is something that would fit in well with the Rockets' high-paced and up-tempo offense.
As Grissom's evaluation analysis on Scout.com states, he makes several plays with his feet and has tremendous pocket awareness. On the defensive side of the ball, Grissom is an extremely sound tackler, which makes coaches drool at the thought of Grissom's athletic and versatile ability.
"Toledo thinks I can play early and bring a lot to the table," Grissom stated, "Coach Cory (Robinson) and Coach Wright have been recruiting me and they're very honest with me. They've visited me at school a lot and I have a lot of great conversations with them."
Grissom says he will be in Toledo sometime this summer to perform at a camp but does not know which camp he will be attending yet. Aside from Toledo, Grissom is looking to visit Indiana, West Virginia, Memphis and Michigan State.
Grissom says no matter where he commits, the fans will see a leader on and off of the field - "Wherever I commit, they're getting a leader and a humble quarterback who will work very hard and push his teammates. I'm trustworthy and on the field, they're getting someone who can make plays and read defenses."
