Frisco (Texas) Lone Star 2015 offensive guard Charlie Grammel stands 6-foot-4, 290-pounds, and he has attracted the interest of college coaches with his play on the field.
He currently lists offers from Tulsa and BYU, but he is receiving significant interest from the likes of Colorado State, Missouri, Mississippi State, Rutgers, SMU, TCU, and Texas A&M.
Recently, a couple of programs reached out to him, including one new school.
"I'm going up to Tulsa for a junior day on the 14th, and Arkansas State came to the school two days ago and said on Signing Day I could expect an offer," Grammel said. "That's the most recent stuff."
Over the last few years, he has developed strong relationships with a few college coaches, but he has developed a particularly strong relationship with Oklahoma co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel.
"He was the one who first made contact with me and he came down and saw me my freshman year," Grammel said. "I first got in some contact with him in the 8th grade. It was my second year in football and the school I was attending I was a big guy among a team of little people so I got recognized. That kind of encouraged me to work harder so over the years me and him have developed a relationship."
The Sooners along with BYU and Tulsa currently stand out among all the schools recruiting him. What has the programs at the top? There is one big, important reason.
"The academics mostly," Grammel said. "I'm looking to go to school for academics. And if I can get into a school for football I'm going to try my hardest at it, but my academics are my main focus. So I'm looking into Psychology departments at the schools because that's what I'm hoping to major in."
