Grice Adds Rutgers Offer During Visit
West Hartford (Conn.) Kingswood Oxford running back Sharrieff Grice wasn't expecting much when he arrived for his Rutgers visit Tuesday morning, but that changed during an afternoon meeting with coach Kyle Flood. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound Grice visited with class of 2016 teammate Koby Quansah, and both picked up offers before they headed home. "I thought it was very special because prior to coming down, I had spoken to (receivers) coach (Josh) McDaniels on the phone and he was telling me how excited he was to have a job at Rutgers," Grice said. "He was saying how excited he was to recruit me, and that we would be a building a strong relationship over this next year. "I wasn't expecting it, so the offer was a big surprise. My first time being on campus and meeting coach McDaniels in person. As soon as I got on campus, it seemed like they were very, very interested in me and wanted to see how I was doing." Grice, who can also play linebacker, was able to tour Rutgers' facilities, meet the staff and watch practice, where he concentrated on the running backs. "I got to see to see their play style," said Grice, who carried 93 times for 840 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. "They're a pro-style, and a run-dominant team first. Their running backs seemed great. They had a few good running backs. No. 6 (Desmon Peoples), he looked pretty good." After practice, he met with Flood. "He asked how I liked the school, the practice, and what I was most interested in when looking at a school," Grice said. "I told him the atmosphere and the people surrounding me were a big deal for me. He said that is big for them because you have to mesh well with the people there because you're going to be playing with them, and playing for them." Grice also holds an offer from Boston College, and is being recruited by Maryland, Connecticut, Yale and Harvard as well. However, the program he knows best is Boston College, which he visited earlier this month. "I'm in pretty regular contact with them," Grice said. "It's one of the first places that started recruiting me. It's a great campus, great atmosphere, the facilities are relatively new. I love the new coaching staff there and the players really seem to be behind coach (Steve) Addazio and really seem to buy into his message and his motto."
