Ardmore, Okla., tight end Jermaine Gresham is talented to enough to play all over the field and the 6-foot-7, 230-pound four-star prospect is getting that chance as he's being used in a number of ways for his high school team.
Of course, it's really no surprise. The Rivals100 prospect is rated as the No. 2 tight end but with his size he's being used at wide receiver, a rushing force on reverses, and even in the slot in motion. Those moves have gained him an astounding 10 touchdowns through only four games. With a highly successful season underway, recruiting is actually slowing down a bit from what he's used to.
"Well it's been good coaching really," Gresham said about his big season so far. "They've got me all over the place. I'm in motion, in the slot, receiver, stuff like that. It is what I expected though so far."
With Gresham's recruitment rivaling some of the top prospects in the nation, it's a bit surprising that the No. 2 rated player in the state of Oklahoma is not getting tired of all the attention. It's actually slowed.
"I'm getting used to it too," Gresham said. "It's just normal now. The phone calls have slowed down but I figure that these college coaches have games now, so that's what they're worried about. It is hectic though to start thinking about visits. I'm definitely going to check out Miami, LSU, and probably USC."
Those three schools popped into his mind because Gresham sees those colleges as "great programs with good coaches." However, the in-state school Oklahoma seems to always be a factor.
"Oh they're up there," Gresham said about the Sooners. "I like their style of football. I wish they would use their tight end more, but they're a great team with a good defense."
When those official visits will be set, is unknown to Gresham at this time. His decision is also not holding down a set date.
"Whenever I find the team that I want to go to, I'll do it," he said. "Yeah, it's just when I feel right. Then I'll know. I'm trying to take all five of my visits, but that doesn't mean that's what will happen."
"I'll be setting up visits and getting that going either this week or next."
