Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw has an excellent track record for sending players to the D-I level and once again they have at least three players with the chance of playing D-I college football. A sure bet to see his name on a D-I roster for the fall of 2009 is wide receiver Noel Grigsby (5-10, 160, 4.4).
Grigsby earned all-city, all-conference and all-area as a junior after hauling in 35 receptions for 850 yards and a very productive 15 touchdowns.
When needed on defense, Grigsby played scorner and safety.
Obviously when you when you score 15 touchdowns as a wide receiver you are very good running the football after the catch. Grigsby runs good routes, but us working hard to improve.
Grigsby is thinking about attending the Beyond 2000 Elite Camp (B2G) in June, but he is not sure. B2G is the only camp that he is considering on attending.
"Noel is very cerebral in his approach to the game," Crenshaw coach Robert Garrett said. "He has a keen understanding of how the game is played.
"Noel understands formation and finds the dead spots," Garrett said. "He understands the circumference of the field and he uses that to his advantage.
"Noel's actions speak louder than his words," Garrett said. "He's an IQ guy.
"Noel is a hard worker who reminds me of the guys who lets his play do his talking for him."
In the early going it is the usual suspects looking at Grigsby. Colleges such as UCLA, Cal, Arizona State, Oregon and Oregon State have shown the talented receiver early recruiting interest.
There is no doubt that you will be hearing about this talented receiver a lot more as the recruiting process progresses. Grigsby is definitely one to keep your eye on.
