Gragg's Offers Keep Rolling In

Pine Bluff junior tight end Will Gragg, a key Arkansas recruiting target, was offered by Georgia Sunday to give him eight from the 14 SEC teams.

Pine Bluff tight end Will Gragg was offered by Georgia Sunday.

The offer came just one day after Gragg participated in the Dallas Nike Football Camp, where he measured 6-4 and 247 pounds and caught the ball well.

"[The camp] was great," Gragg said. "I felt like I got a good work out in. I felt like the best tight end there."

Georgia is the eighth SEC team to offer the four-star tight end. About a week before the Bulldogs offered him, Michigan State also offered Gragg.

He is rated as the No. 7 tight end in the country.

Gragg said he would be in Fayetteville for Arkansas' spring game April 26.

"I just want to come up and get a good feel for the fans and see hard-nosed football," Gragg said.

While he doesn't know exactly where he'll visit over the summer, Gragg said he knows that he'll visit several places. The summer will give him an opportunity to travel to schools outside of the south that aren't within an easy driving distance.

Notre Dame and Cal are a couple of schools outside of the southern states that have offered him.

Before those visits, though, Gragg will participate in Pine Bluff's spring practice, which begins in the second week of May.

"I want to perfect my craft," Gragg said. "I was a good blocker last year, but I want to become more consistent and keep becoming a better blocker and route runner."

In 2013, the Zebras came up seven points short in the Arkansas 6A state title game, losing to El Dorado and 2014 Arkansas signee Bijhon Jackson 31-24.

Gragg said he hopes for a different result this year.

"We need better preparation," Gragg said. "We weren't as focused as we needed to be and we need to learn to finish."
