Grainger visiting Sun Belt school

L.A. Pierce showcased a two-headed monster at the quarterback position this season and one, Clinton Grainger (6-4, 231), is in the Lonestar State this weekend visiting North Texas to see what the Mean Green has to offer...

Grainger prepped at George Washington High School in Philadelphia, but didn't get a lot in the way of recruiting attention, so he headed west to continue his football career and to get noticed by D-1 recruiters.

"Pierce had a good rep and I liked the coaches and to be able to play in Los Angeles, it was a good opportunity for me," Grainger told recently. "It's worked out well for me. I love it here."

Grainger combined with Exavier Johnson to lead a Brahmas attack that scored 37.8 points and put up 479.6 yards per game.

"It was tough sharing series, but you had to adapt and make plays when you had the chance to be in there," Grainger said. "I can run around and make plays with my feet, but I like to throw it and use my arm."

While sharing snaps, Grainger totaled 1,176 yards passing with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions while also running for nearly 200 yards and five scores.

With his outstanding size and 4.51 speed, Grainger has had plenty of four-year schools with their eyes on his talents.

"I'm visiting North Texas this weekend and they have offered," Grainger said. "I also have an offer from Florida International and Montana and Western Carolina and Cincinnati and UNLV both like me a lot."

Granger redshirted his first year at Pierce, so when he signs a school, he will have three years to play three once he steps on campus.
