First Two Offers In The Books For Grant

Highland WR Troy Grant (6-4, 200) has seen recruiting pick up quite a bit over the past few weeks. The talented wideout already has two offers and more could be on the way in the near future...

"I have offers right now from Southern Mississippi and Ohio," Grant told "The other schools that I've been talking to the most are Arkansas State, Purdue and Fresno State, but they haven't offered yet."

As a freshman this past season, Grant finished third on the Scotties with 28 receptions for 472 yards and he led the team with six touchdowns.

With his outstanding size and his ability to shield defenders from the ball, the Highland coaches made Grant their top red-zone target.

"When we got into the red-zone, my coaches tried to get me the ball most of the time," Grant said. "I'm a down-the-field guy and a possession guy. I have speed, but more than anything, I'd say I'm explosive."

After a good prep career at Hernando High School in Brooksville, Florida, Grant, who was unable to qualify academically for a scholarship, started to look around for a place to call home.

"My coach had a connection with someone up here at Highland and it just felt like the right place to be," Grant said. "It's been a good place for me to play."

Grant is on pace to finish up his two-year degree this December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
