Grammer hoping for more offers

Junior quarterback Austin Grammer of Tuscaloosa (Ala.) American Christian Academy has been stuck on one offer for a couple of months.
He is optimistic that will soon change.
"I'm supposed to go out to Tulsa this summer," Grammer said. "They said I'm in their top three. They're going to have all three of us at camp. Houston said it's down to me and one other guy. They want to see me in live action. Houston will be at my spring game Thursday."
Additionally, Grammer, who holds a Temple offer, is hearing from programs such as Louisville.
"They're coming down Wednesday to practice, Grammer said. "And they want me in camp."
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Grammer led his team to a 12-2 record in 2010. He threw for more than 2,600 yards, rushed for 600-plus yards and had 33 touchdown passes.
Grammer was intercepted only once last season.
"It was the last play of the year," Grammer said. "It was a hail Mary at the end of the game."
Grammer's stellar TD-to-INT ratio isn't a fluke, he suggested. He said accuracy is his greatest asset, and the primary reason colleges are interested.
"Tulsa, Houston, Wyoming … they all say the thing they look for in translating into a college quarterback is accuracy," Grammer said. "They can teach you footwork and work on your arm strength, and all that stuff."
This summer, Grammer plans to visit several schools.
"I think I'll go to Temple and Tulsa … and I'll probably go out to Houston," he said. "I also plan on going to Troy, Auburn, Louisville and Kentucky [for camps]. I'm doing six or seven one-day things for the QB coaches to come see me throw."
