"We beat West Boliver 14-3,"
added Terrell Grant. "I had a couple of catches for like 28 yards. Our QB
did not have any time to throw the ball, so we were not throwing it like we have
been in practices, but we are going to get all of that straight before we play
Grant woke up the next morning and headed over to Oxford
to see the Ole Miss/Memphis game.
"I drove over there with one of
my coaches, and I just liked everything about their offense. I saw a lot of improvements
from last year, a lot, especial with their passing game. I think Coach Nutt is
really about to turn it around, and a big part of it is going to be their passing
game. That was the first college game I have ever been to, and I enjoyed it a
lot. I like the fans and just the whole environment. It is a good school. I like
everything about it."
The Ole Miss fans really made an impression.
fans stood out the most to me. Every play they would yell to help their defense
or offense out. They were even yelling when they were blowing Memphis out. That
caught my eye. And I liked how the coaches were throwing it over and over. They
threw it more than I expected. That was my main focus to see if they were going
to be conservative or not, and I guess they saw something against Memphis' defense,
and they let it rip."
Terrell had a chance to speak with the receiver
coach at Ole Miss.
"I left early in the 4th quarter because I did
not want to get caught in all of that traffic, but I spoke with Coach Dickerson
when they were running to the tunnel at half-time. Coach Nutt waved and pointed
at me as he was running in. That was pretty cool."
he is getting closer and closer to making a decision.
"I am probably
going to make a decision pretty soon, as early as this week or as late as next
week, but it will be pretty soon, I promise you that. I just want to make sure
I am making the right decision and go over everything there is to go over, but
I am about 99% sure of my decision. I just need to take a few days to go over
it with my family."
Who are the schools still in the running?
Miss and MSU. I want to stay close to home, so if there is an emergency at my
house, I can get over there in a hurry. I need to make sure I do not leave too
far from home."
What will be the other factors in Terrell's decision?
want to go be with a great head coach and a great position coach. I want to play
in an explosive offense, not one that just runs and runs it. But the main thing
will be team unity and location. I need to stay close to home and I do not want
to play for a team where they think they are all superstars. I want to be in a
