Grasu has also attended a few other camps during the circuit.
"I have also been to the Cal, UCLA and Oregon camps," Grasu said. "Oregon told me that they like me a lot and for me to stay patient with them.
"UCLA and Cal both told me that they like my athleticism and how my motor never stops," Grasu said. "All of the schools that I camped with told me to stay in touch with them every week and I told that I will definitely be in touch."
