SALEM, Ore. - Vancouver (Wash.) Heritage quarterback Garrett Grayson has been one of the more prolific signal-callers the last two years on the west coast, throwing for nearly 6,000 yards. But the 6-foot-2, 194-pound Grayson has little to show for his work in terms of scholarship offers.

Hopefully that will change after his work at the 4th Annual Barton Football / Next Step College Sports Marketing Workout, held Saturday at Willamette University.

Grayson ran a 4.62 40, and while he didn't run in any other events, he did clock a 4.17 40 in the 20-yard shuttle at the U.S. Army All-American combine, held January in San Antonio.

Oregon and Washington have been to Heritage High to visit, and Tennessee, Nebraska and Alabama have all sent letters of interest. If Grayson had his choice, he'd love to play in the SEC. "Because of how big football is," he told

"This kid is a stud," said Barton Football founder Greg Barton. "He is big, physical and athletic. In track this spring he has set numerous school records in the sprints, javelin and hurdles. In two years of varsity competition he has thrown for around 6,000 yards and a whole bunch of TDs. He is a very solid QB prospect, but what few understand is that he can become a big-time SS, or OLB or TE/slot.

"The guy is flat out an athlete."

Grayson plans on going to the Oregon Nike camp, as well as the Elite 11 camp in Eugene and Boise State's football camp.
