2016 West Los Angeles DE/LB Grant Coffey has seen an uptick in recruiting over the past couple of weeks

2016 West Los Angeles DE/LB Grant Coffey (6-2, 250) has seen an uptick in recruiting over the past couple of weeks...

"I just got an offer from Bowling Green and they are setting a visit for me in the next couple of weeks," Coffey told JCFootball.com. "Wyoming is also after me and they are bringing me in on a visit this coming weekend.

"Southern Miss is interested in me and Kansas State like my film and are wondering why I haven't signed yet, so they asked for my transcripts."

As a sophomore this past season for West Los Angeles, Coffey used his quick first step and natural pass-rushing abilities to post 38 tackles, two sacks and 10 tackles-for-loss while playing mostly defensive end, but also rotating in at linebacker as well.

"I can do it all, but attacking the quarterback is what I love to do," Coffey said. "This offseason, I'll be watching more film and studying offensive lineman and their movements so I'm able to play faster on the field and not over-think things too much.

"When I over-think, I play slower, so I definitely don't want to do that anymore."

Coffey prepped at Culver City (Ca.) High School and enjoyed a solid career there. He signed with Western New Mexico, a D-2 program, but after he arrived he knew it wasn't the right place for him.

"I just felt like I could play at a higher level, so I started to look around and Northern Colorado was going to put me on scholarship, but I was going to have to sit out a year and that's when I realized I should have gone JUCO from the beginning," Coffey said. "The coaches here at West Los Angeles, they know the game of football and I had a good vibe with them, plus, it's right down the street from my house, so it's close and that was a big plus for me."

Coffey already has his two-year degree and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
