Grady Makes the Grade

Tom Grady, 6-6, 210, Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison, has improved his stock consistently through the spring and summer, turning in very strong, consistent performances at various camps and combines.

Saturday at UCLA's one-day camp he was clearly the elite quarterback talent. He definitely improved his stock with the UCLA coaches and you can probably expect that they'll be recruiting him pretty aggressively as a result of his performance.

When we spoke with Grady on Saturday, he first said that Miami was his favorite, and then re-considered. "UCLA or Miami, they're both up they're, but you could say I don't really have a leader," he said. "Miami is the latest trend for me," he said with a smile. "They just offered."

He also mentioned Florida State, Oklahoma and Tennessee as the other schools he's interested in.

Grady didn't think he'd be committing anytime soon, though. "I want to go through the process, wait and take my trips. I don't think I'd commit early, unless a school really stands out." His parents, he said, don't really have a preference of school, and don't necessarily prefer that he stay close to home.

When asked about a possible problem with his academics, he shrugged and said he had a 3.0 overall GPA and a 2.8 core GPA. He took the ACT recently but said he hadn't received his score back as of yet.
