Avondale (Az.) Westview CB/QB Jourdan Grandon jumped into the double digit offers when the University of Arizona extended a scholarship offer today, making the Wildcats the tenth program to offer.
Grandon tells us how it went down, "I was in weights this morning and Coach Bowen (Westview head coach) handed me the phone and it was Coach Kish. He said that he was going to offer me yesterday but they were waiting on the final okay from Coach Stoops. After that I talked to both of the Coach Stoops and they are excited about me coming to the 7 on 7 tournament this Saturday."
This will not be Grandon's first trip to UofA, "I've been to campus before and I like the campus and everything. The coaches are really cool and relaxed."
Grandon also has offers from Idaho, Washington, Arizona State, New Mexico, Colorado State, Boise State, Colorado, San Diego State and Portland State.
Grandon (5-11 185) was a standout on both sides of the all in 2008, earning all-region accolades as a QB after accounting for 2,200 yards of offense and 19 TDs. From his corner spot he made 38 tackles and 4 picks helping the Knights reach the 5A2 state title game. Most schools are recruiting him as a defensive back.
Here are his junior highlights:
