Montreal (Canada ) Beurling receiver Jaylan Grandison (6-4, 190), is still a 2014 prospect, but the Canadian prospect already has his sights set on playing football in the states in a couple of years.
One of the standouts for Team Canada at last month’s NLA Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas, the 6-4, 190-pounder is looking at a number of schools the span the U.S. to play college ball.
“I’m already checking out Rutgers, Buffalo, Michigan and UCLA,” said Grandison. “I like Michigan State too. Really, I’m open to any D-I school and I want to play at the D-I level.”
Grandison’s former workout partner, Eli Ankou, is headed to UCLA this fall and Grandison said the Bruins appeal to him.
“I worked out with Eli and we’re planning to go to the UCLA camp this summer when he’s there,” said Grandison.
In addition, Grandison is also planning to camp at Michigan, Michigan State and Rutgers.
“Most schools like me as a receiver, but some have said I could end up growing into a tight end,” said Grandison. “I used to play safety but offense is what my focus is on.”
Grandison has some time till he’ll need to make a decision, but he’s already starting to put a plan in place.
“We’re going to do a whole national tour this summer of camps and I’ll dwindle my list down as I get older,” said Grandison. “Right now, it’s about staying on top of my academics.”
