Junior offensive lineman Mike Grimm of Bethel Park, Pa. continues to hold two offers, and after recently concluding his season, he is eager to hit the road for a few visits. This will include two visits in the next week.
"Recruiting is picking up in a sense that now I have a lot more time to go look at schools and go to games without being exhausted," said Grimm, who is 6-foot-7 and 315 pounds. "I know that I don't have to be back at a certain time to be back for practice."
Grimm has already taken visits to Pittsburgh and West Virginia, and this week will check out Virginia on Thursday and Penn State on Saturday.
"I am hoping to see a good playing atmosphere and good respectable coaches that make you feel at home," said Grimm. "I want to see coaches that want to coach you to be the best player you can be."
Pittsburgh and Youngstown State have already offered Grimm, and a host of other schools are showing serious interest, including Maryland, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Michigan State, Alabama, Georgia, Penn State, Miami, Auburn, Indiana, Wisconsin, Virginia, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
Once he concludes these two upcoming visits, Grimm also mentioned that he would like to visit Alabama, Maryland and Virginia Tech during the winter or spring.
Also, now that his junior season is complete, Grimm will turn his attention to the U.S. All-American Combine in early January.
"I am looking to prove that I have good feet, strength and good overall quickness," he said. "I also want to prove that I have what it takes to be an All-American."
Before he turns his full attention on his recruiting process and the Army All-American game, Grimm looked back at his junior season.
"I thought I improved a lot and got to play some very good teams," said Grimm. "Last year was more of a mental year. I just did my job and blocked someone. This year I improved on finishing blocks and sustaining blocks until the whistle blows, and driving people into the ground."
