Gross talks LSU offer

1250192
Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage defensive back Bryant Gross concluded his spring on Wednesday night when his squad squared off against Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage. It was the end to a successful month for the 6-foot-1, 188-pound prospect.
"Everything is going well," Gross said. "I have picked up new offers recently from Central Michigan, Bowling Green, and LSU. LSU was the most recent."
In addition to those three offers, Gross also has offers from Hawaii, Rutgers, Tennessee State, and Utah State.
The LSU offer, which was extended by assistant coach Corey Raymond, came earlier in the week.
"It was Saturday morning, we had a light scrimmage, and he came by to see practice," Gross said. "He wanted to see me at corner."
Gross has seen recruiting interest at multiple positions in the secondary, so the Tigers wanting to evaluate him at cornerback didn't come as a surprise.
"Some like me as a corner and some like me as a safety," Gross said. "Some like my size at corner. I prefer corner over safety."
Apparently, Raymond liked what he saw out of the Sunshine State prospect.
"When the scrimmage got done, (Raymond) first told the news to my coach and then he told my parents," Gross said.
Gross was able to follow-up about the offer later that day when he spoke with Coach Raymond.
"I was the last person to get to talk to him," Gross said. "He told me that he wants to see me at their camp. He wants their other coaches to see me at their camp this summer.
"I will make their camp," Gross added.
At this point, LSU is the only visit Gross knows he will make. He said he plans to visit other schools, but has to sit down to make a schedule.
He talked about where things stand with a favorite at this time.
"I wouldn't say they (LSU) are my leader, but I do like them a lot and they are definitely in one of my top spots," Gross said.
With regards to a final decision, Gross is not working with a specific timetable.
