Gratz impresses at Nike

Piscataway, N.J. cornerback Dwayne Gratz made the short trip over to Rutgers on Sunday for the Nike Camp. The 6-foot-0, 179-pounder left the even with defensive back honors.
"I won the defensive back award at the Rutgers Nike Camp," he said. "I just went after the best wide receivers there including DeVier Posey who committed to Ohio State.
"I felt like I showed the coaches there that I could be aggressive and cover seven yards off the line of scrimmage. For me, the award wasn't that big of a surprise. I just went out there and did well and felt like I was one of the best. I had a good day."

Despite the impressive performance, Gratz still holds two offers.
"I have scholarships from Connecticut and Temple," he said. "I'd say I don't have any favorites, nobody is standing out to me at all.
"I'm just trying to stay open and look at everything, but I can tell you UConn will always be up there for me because they were the first school to offer and that means a lot."
While other schools haven't offered, quite a few are mentioning it.
"I'm hearing from a bunch of schools," he said. "Michigan State said they have to show their coaches before offering, as did Boston College," he said. "I think Syracuse is close and Maryland wants me to come down for camp and then they said they'll likely offer too."
This summer, Gratz is looking at a few camps including Maryland, Temple, Boston College and Syracuse.
