Kater Has Fresh Start at GRCC

Grand Rapids Community College (Mich.) has a prospect under center that many FBS schools are monitoring in Cody Kater.

It was just two years ago that Cody Kater won a state title at Montague High School. Now, he is back on the west side after a brief stint at Cincinnati, and ready to lead the Raiders.

"It has been going real well," he said. "I've been here all summer taking classes. I like the coaches and I like all my teammates and everything is going well right now."

Kater returned to West Michigan a different player after putting his time in and dedicating himself to the weight room.

"I'm probably like 6'3 1/2, 230-235. I've put on about 30 pounds since high school. It's different. This will be my first full season playing at that weight. I'm excited to see what happens."

GRCC has put their last two quarterbacks into the college ranks and James Stallons and Casey Therriault both put up outstanding numbers in head coach Tony Annese's offense.

There is no reason to think Kater won't do the same, and schools are interested in his progress this fall.

"Yeah, there are a lot of schools calling and making sure that I'm here from all the rumors. There's a lot of what ifs going on. Am I going to get the credits and that sort of thing. So, a lot of them are just making sure that I'm here and telling me good luck."

A few of those schools, either Kater or his coaches have talked to as he looks for a destination after his time in Grand Rapids.

"Michigan State, they've been the most on me, then there's Wisconsin and then the MAC schools."
