With the size (6'1, 195) and the versatility to play either side of the the ball, Grant Weatherford has been steadily climbing through the Winter and Spring. He had several strong third-party camp performances and his in-school workouts produced his first offer from the Ohio Bobcats.
"It was awesome. It was not only a relief but just kind of knowing, alright people are noticing, was nice. Hopefully it starts to pick up."
Weatherford says he believes the offer from the Bobcats is as an athlete. He plans to visit Athens, but has not set a date for that yet.
One school that has been increasing the interest of late is Indiana.
"They've been in contact a lot recently. They came in the school and Coach Patton said I could go both ways. He said the strong safety coach loves me and the receivers coach loves me so he really wants me to get down to camp to show the coaches what he sees in me on film."
That camp will be one of several Weatherford will attend as he looks to keep his momentum going.
