ECU first to offer QB Grier

At the Rivals.com/VTO Sports Elite 100 camp two weekends ago in Charlotte, sophomore Will Grier of Davidson (N.C.) Davidson Day was one of the top quarterbacks on hand. And according to Grier, his performance that day helped get the word out about his abilities.
"I think colleges [heard] that I can play and that I separated myself from the other QBs there," Grier said. "It was definitely a positive."
On Monday, good news arrived for Grier in the form of his first scholarship offer. It came from East Carolina, which he visited that day.
"Honestly, it surprised me," Grier said. "They haven't seen me in a camp or anything. I was more excited than anything. It was my first offer, so I thought it was cool. I'm excited to learb more about ECU."
The 6-feet-3, 171-pound Grier threw for more than 3,700 yards in 12 games last year. He had 49 touchdown passes to go along with 12 interceptions.
According to Grier, he also recently visited Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest.
"They all are very interested," Grier said. "They want to see me in camp, so I'm going to those four camps for sure."
According to Grier, he is strongly interested in East Carolina. While there, he met with head coach Ruffin Neill, sat in on the team's quarterback meeting and watched practice.
"I really liked it," Grier said. "We had limited time. I didn't get to see everything, but I liked what I saw. I saw the athletic facilities and got a quick tour around the campus. I'm definitely going back and looking into it more. I'm excited to see more."
