Ohio linebacker still think about SU

Syracuse is still having depth issues at some positions and one of those positions is linebacker. So far this recruiting season the Orange have added a few players that can play linebacker, but their search still continues. One prospect that they are still looking at is Nicholas Grigsby.

Grigsby, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds has held his Syracuse offer for a few months and he likes what he sees from them, but at the same time he wants to find out more about the Orange.

"I am still looking at Syracuse," Grigsby said. "They are a good school and they are trying to build up their program to win games. I just want to see what they have to offer."

A visit to Syracuse to find out what they have to offer has not been set up because Grigsby is looking to wait a little bit longer before he starts his visits.

"We have not talked about setting up a visit yet. I am probably going to take my visits after the season."

Syracuse has two coaches looking after Grigsby and recently one of those coaches made a stop to see the three star prospect.

"Coach Adkins and Coach Conley are recruiting me. I have only talked with Coach Adkins a couple times. The linebackers coach came in and talked with me the other day. He is a cool guy and I could see myself playing for him."

In the Rivals.com database Grigsby is listed as an outside linebacker, if he picks Syracuse he will stay at that position.

"They want to mainly use me as an outside linebacker," Grigsby stated. "I bring speed, I am physical, and I am good in coverage."

With offers from a Syracuse, Michigan State, Kansas, Missouri, Cincinnati, and Bowling Green have any of the schools established themselves as a leader?

"I don't have any leaders right now."

At this time with no leaders and no visits set up yet a decision is not likely to come soon.

"I am not in a hurry to make any decisions yet."

This football season Grigsby and his teammates from Trotwood-Madison are off to a solid start and he hopes his team can meet their preseason goal.

"The season is going good we are 4-2 right now and we have homecoming coming up this week. The team goal is to make the playoffs, build up our relationship with each other and hope we make it to States."

As for Grigsby himself he is also playing well.

"I have two punt blocks, a touchdown, around seventy tackles, and a few sacks. As far as individual goals I just want to ball out, get as many tackles as I can and make All-State."
