Grasu nabs Husky offer following camp

Crespi (Encino, Ca.) DE/OL Hroniss Grasu came to the Evergreen State to take in camps at Washington and Washington State and after making the trek north he will leave with an offer from one school and could see an offer from the other.

"Things went great," Grasu told Saturday evening. "I got offered by Washington and Washington State told me they wanted me to call them on Monday."

Grasu was the fourth prospect who attended Washington's Rising Stars camp to get an offer.

"After the camp coach (Steve) Sarkisian told me to call him," Grasu said. "When I did he said he was offering me a scholarship.

"My brother plays at Washington State, so it was kinda weird to get the offer just because they are rivals, but he said he loved the way I moved and my intensity. He said he wanted me to be a Husky."

Grasu, who is being accompanied on his trip by his mother, said neither of them could speak afterwards.

"The whole point of coming up here to Seattle was to get offered and I accomplished that," Grasu said. "My mom and I were sorta speechless, just really excited about it and it means a lot that they thought enough of me to offer me."

The Cougars and Huskies were merely the fourth and fifth camps that Grasu took part in as he had already taken in Oregon's one day camp as well as Cal and UCLA's camps.

"Oregon said they like me, but they told me I have to be patient," Grasu said. "UCLA really likes me a lot and Cal said they were impressed with me and what I could do and my athleticism."

Grasu is a standout on both sides of the ball for Crespi and was named All-League and All-Area as a junior in 2008 after earning All-State (Soph) in 2007.

Grasu said he expects to make his decision at the end of the summer so he can concentrate on his senior season.
