One guy who seems like the type of player who could be receiving some offers to play Division-I football in the upcoming months is Grant Gremel. Gremel is a pro-style quarterback out of Noblesville, Ind. (Noblesville HS) who’s listed as a three-star prospect by 247sports and already has a healthy list of schools that are interested in him.
As of right now, 247sports has Gremel listed as a three-star prospect (0.8333 composite) and the 12th-ranked prospect in the state of Indiana. Amongst other pro-style quarterbacks, he’s the highest-ranked one in Indiana, No. 29 nationally.
Gremel is listed at 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds, which is likeable frame. He’s got a big arm to go with it, and plays in a system that lets him show it off. If you watch the opening scene of his junior-season highlights via Hudl, it shows him tossing up a deep ball to his receiver over the middle of the field. Gremel releases the ball on his own 23-yard line, his receiver reaches, falls and makes the catch down on their opponent’s 22-yard line.
While he has no offers, Gremel is listed to have received interests from Cincinnati, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Miami-OH, Michigan State, Ohio, Purdue Western Michigan and Wisconsin.
“The two schools who have talked to me the most are Duke and (Indiana),” Gremel told MAC Prospectus, adding that he’s taken official visits elsewhere and has been in contact with other teams’ coaches.
Gremel said that he had a breakout season as a sophomore that grabbed a lot of scouts’ attentions, but as a junior, he was the quarterback of a really young team that had to replace 33 seniors from the year before.
Gremel has recently been added to Indy Select’s 7 v 7 roster for the second year in a row.
“I think last year helped a lot with exposure because almost everyone on my team pretty much had D-I offers,” Gremel added. “I think that really catapulted everyone on the team to get exposure. Especially being at the quarterback position, you can kind of show off better because you have a good set of receivers.”
Last year’s Indy Select team included running back Johnny Adams (Indianapolis, Ind.; Ben Davis HS), who flipped from Ball State to California and signed with the Golden Bears, wide receiver Elijah Ball (Indianapolis, Ind.; Ben Davis HS; Purdue signee), running back Markese Stepp (Indianapolis, Ind.; Cathedral HS; Southern California signee), and others that have signed to Iowa, Boston College and Air Force.
