Edison QB has a healthy list of suitors

Tom Grady is a 6-6, 210-pound quarterback prospect from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison, and if you judge a player by the types of scholarship offers he has, you would have to believe Grady is one of the top quarterbacks in the entire country.

"I have offers from Miami, Tennessee, Oklahoma, every Pac-10 school except for Stanford, BYU, Colorado and Colorado State," Grady told Dawgman.com. "Miami, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Tennessee and UCLA are the schools showing the most interest lately."

And why not? Grady's completion percentage for Edison last season was 65 percent, throwing for 2900 yards, 33 touchdowns and surrendering only 3 interceptions along the way.

Coaches gave Tom plenty of feedback this spring. "They say I'm accurate and I'm a leader on the field," Tom said. "I think I'm good at finding the open receiver, picking the defenses apart."

Coach Steve Axman was the Washington coach that offered Grady. "He just said that he really likes what he sees in me," Tom said. "I definitely have an interest in Washington, but I'm really not thinking too much about recruiting right now."

Is it a matter of too much too soon for Grady? "I expected it (attention) just because of the season we had last year, but I didn't expect this much," he said. "It's pretty hectic, but it's not too bad."

As for summer plans, Tom will be participating in his summer football camp at Edison, The Elite 11 camp, and a camp back east, possibly at the University of Miami.
