After playing host to coaches from Southern Mississippi this morning, Rivals100 running back Terry Grant of Lumberton, Miss., is back to being wide open with regards to his college choice.
"He's back to being as wide open as a person can be," Lumberton head coach Teddy Dyess said. "It's Clemson, Florida State, Southern Mississippi and Alabama. It may go past Signing Day.
"After Southern Miss left, I sat him down and talked to him. He told me 'coach, I am just confused."

Later in the day, Grant confirmed that he was again open to Rivals.com and added that he did not know when he would make a final decision.
"I honestly think that the overall relationship with the coaches recruiting him or his position coach (at the potential school) has made it tough to decide," Dyess said.
Burton Burns and Vic Koenning are recruiting Grant for Clemson. Buddy Wyatt and Sparky Woods are leading the charge for Alabama. Mickey Andrews is the recruiter of record for Florida State and Derrick Nix and Jay Johnson are leading the charge for Southern Mississippi.
With Hattiesburg being near his hometown, there is some speculation that the Golden Eagles are in a good position to land him. But that may not be the case, according to Dyess.
"He has no family in Lumberton," Dyess said. "His dad passed away a couple of years ago and his mom lives in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. On one hand, Hattiesburg is close to Lumberton, but on the other hand, he may want to get away and be his own man."
Dyess also added that Grant, the nation's No. 87 overall prospect, will take his scheduled official visit to Memphis this weekend.
"Memphis has kind of been lying back," he said. "He is definitely going to take his visit. They kind of have an outside chance right now, but you never know."
Grant is the nation's No. 4 overall all-purpose running back prospect.
