Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gormon has developed an outstanding reputation for sending its best players to the D-I level and once again Bishop Gordon will be a destination point for college football coaches as the school has player who is getting national attention.
The player in question is tight end/defensive end Xavier Grimble (6-6, 245, 4.7). He has written offers on the table from UCLA, UNLV and Oklahoma's offered arrived just last Friday.
Grimble has verbal offers from Oregon, Oregon State and Duke. Schools such as Cal, Washington, Colorado and Florida have already been by the school.
UCLA, Oregon and Georgia have invited Grimble to their junior day and will try to make all three, but Georgia may tough. Grimble will also try to visit Oklahoma.
The Sooners have two players from Bishop Gorman currently on their roster (linebacker Ryan Reynolds and running back Demarco Murray) and they recently signed a third last Wednesday in four-star defensive end Justin Chaisson.
"My options are pretty open right now," Grimble said. "I don't think playing far from home will be a major consideration."
"It will be more about the coaching staff and how I fit in the team," Grimble said. "Other considerations will be how I like the city, the location and how many players are returning."
"I have thought about when I will make my decision quite a bit," Grimble said. "I hope to make my decision before my senior season starts."
"I don't really want the added pressure for my senior season," Grimble said. "It is my turn to lead the team."
Grimble earned second-team all-state as a junior. He probably deserved first-team, but Nevada is a state that likes to honor seniors. He was first-team all-conference after accounting for 13 receptions for 305 yards and three touchdowns.
The talented tight end is planning on attending the NIKE Camp in April and will probably go to the Oregon team in June.
In the weight room, Grimble's current bench press is 285, squats 350 and has recorded a 30-inch vertical.
An outstanding all-around athlete, Grimble also plays basketball averaging 10 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
