With September here offers are starting to come in quickly for the top prospects in the Class of 2011. While it's too early to say for sure, Richmond (Va.) Heritage linebacker Curtis Grant appears to be worthy of being included in that group.
The 6-foot-3, 222-pound prospect runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, making him a young man that is, quite simply, more physically mature than the vast majority of prospects his age.
Grant recently told Rivals.com that he has received written offers from Duke, Boston College, Maryland, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
"I haven't talked to anybody lately, though," Grant added. "I'll probably call them all this weekend just to say thank you. They had all verbally offered me except Duke. That one surprised me a little bit. They're okay, but they're a little bit more of a basketball school.
"I'm looking at maybe trying to go to a couple of games at some places, but I don't really know yet. I'll have to wait and see."
Grant went on to say he doesn't have any favorites at this stage in the recruiting process. In late August he did admit that he has spent a lot of time following Virginia Tech, Florida State, Miami, Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State in recent years.
