Woodbridge, N.J. wide receiver Shamar Graves has started to focus on teams he's considering for official visits. Who is the 6-foot-3, 201-pounder with 4.6-second speed considering and why?
"Right now, I'd say I'm looking at Connecticut, Rutgers, Syracuse, West Virginia and Wisconsin for visits," he said. "I like that they are all good school with good programs. I've watched them play so far and I think I can make an impact. Connecticut has always sort of been in it since they were the first school to offer me."
Just because Graves is looking at those five for officials doesn't mean he isn't considering a few other schools still.
"I do also like South Carolina primarily because they pass the ball a lot and I think coach Spurrier is doing a good job there," he said. "I like Notre Dame too especially from watching them this year."
Neither Notre Dame nor South Carolina has offered the No. 47 receiver in the country, but both are showing a lot of interest.
This season Graves and Woodbridge have struggled to a 0-3 start.
"I had a sprained ankle in the first two weeks of the season and didn't play. I came back last week, but I wasn't quite 100%," he said. "We lost 35-33 and I finished with eight tackles, three receptions, a blocked punt for a touchdown and three other touchdowns receiving. I didn't play the entire third quarter because I tweaked my ankle and it was fine and I went back in, in the fourth and scored one my touchdowns.
"I wasn't really that happy with how I played and I felt I could do a lot better. I know I could have made a crucial fourth and short tackle that their quarter converted. I also feel I could have scored more, especially if I played in the third quarter."
