Garrett Grayson admits he's starting to worry about the fact he's yet to receive his first offer, but the Vancouver (Wash.) Heritage quarterback feels his start to his senior season should help garner more attention.
The 6-foot-2, 184-pound dual-threat passer has thrown for 1,193 yards and five touchdowns and also rushed for 302 yards and three scores for Heritage, and he's beginning to send his tapes out in the hopes of landing that elusive offer.
"I feel like I'm getting to run the ball a lot more this year, so teams are really getting to see my speed," Grayson said. "My first two games that I sent out went really well, so hopefully I can get some colleges looking at that and seeing that I can really play."

Grayson had his strongest game of the season so far against West, throwing for 328 yards and rushing for 103 more in the Timberwolves' spread offense. Heritage is currently 1-3 this season.
Grayson sent his tape to Tennessee and Louisville and continues to talk to Cardinals coaches on a weekly basis.
"They called me before my second game and we talked for a little bit," Grayson said. "It was a good conversation, they were just checking up on how everything was going."
After being impressed by Louisville during their camp in early July, Grayson considers the school his clear favorite at this point.
"I like how the coaches are so down-to-Earth and welcome you right in," he said. "Me and my dad went over there and you can just tell they really like their football and they take care of their players well over there. I liked it a lot."
He's not as sure, though, how good of a chance he has to pick up an offer from the Cardinals' coaching staff, since UL already has verbals from Luke Woodley and Mike Rocco.
"They told me they wanted me as a quarterback and that they're waiting to see what happens with the two other quarterbacks for sure," he said.
