Philly QB Talks Huskies

Philadelphia, Pa., native Clinton Sharpe-Granger is still somewhat of an unknown commodity given that many coaches and recruiting services have yet to see his game film, however given his measurables he is certainly a player that looks the part.

Clinton Sharpe-Granger, a 6-foot-2, 238-pound quarterback from George Washington High School in Philadelphia is a player that could also be projected at linebacker, however Connecticut has already been recruiting him at quarterback for quite some time. While Sharpe-Granger has yet to take a trip to Storrs and see what the program has to offer he is still excited about what he has learned.

"Coach Matt Cersosimo seems to be a really cool guy and said they were really interested in me because of my size at quarterback," Granger-Sharpe said. "He said he would be evaluating me at the camps I attended over the past few weeks and recently invited me up to Connecticut for camp this summer which I'm pretty sure I'll be able to make it to. He said he would be in contact again very soon, so I am just waiting to hear back."

"Since I haven't been able to get on campus I have just been reading up on Connecticut a lot and learning as much as I can about them as a football program and as an academic institution," Sharpe-Granger explained. "I saw that they have a brand new weight room full of high-tech equipment and just built an indoor practice facility that looks awesome. The stadium also looks really nice and from what I've read Connecticut provides a quality education."

"The other thing I did notice is that they had a couple players either drafted into the NFL or signed as free agents after the draft and that obviously tells me that they can put people into the league. My goal is just to get into a good school and do what I need to get on the field. This will be the first year I've played defense since I was a kid, so I just want to show teams that I can play quarterback and linebacker, whichever they like better."

Granger did not know his statistics at the time of our talk, however will be providing them to within a weeks' time.
