Grady focused on three

Seffner (Fla.) Armwood fell short in their pursuit for a state championship, but still had a successful season. One of their top offensive leaders was senior quarterback Joshua Grady, who made plays with his arm and legs.
Now that his senior season has concluded, the 6-foot-1, 192-pound athlete is turning his focus towards sorting through his lengthy list of offers.
"My main focus right now has to be on my college decision," Grady said.
The three-star athlete has a trio of schools at the top of his list.
"My list right now consists of USF, Wake Forest, and Iowa State," Grady said.
At this point, he know when he will take one of his official visits. The other two are likely to be taken, but dates are yet to be determined.
"I'm taking an official to USF on the 14th," Grady said. "Wake and Iowa State I'm unsure of."
One recent development that could add some intrigue to Grady's recruitment is the fact that South Florida and one of their quarterback commitments, Stephen Weatherford, have parted ways. The Bulls had previously been looking at Grady as a defensive back, but could he now be seeing an opportunity under center?
"Unfortunately they have yet to contact me," Grady said about their quarterback situation. "I'm hoping they will."
While the local school has been inconsistent in their contact with Grady, he says one of his three suitors has developed a real good relationship with him because of the efforts of one particular coach.
"If I had to choose, I'd say I have the best relationship with Coach (Shane) Burnham of Iowa State," Grady said. "Me and him talk a lot. He's a real down to earth coach, a player's coach."
Grady, who does not claim a leader, will make his final decision known in early February.
"I will publicly announce on Signing Day," Grady said.
As a senior, Grady totaled 3,061 offensive yards and 26 touchdowns while playing quarterback.
