Assessing the talent: As a junior he rushed for 657 yards and 10 touchdowns. Strong for his size (280 bench/455 squat). Nice running style, always seems to get yards, mostly due to his nice cutting ability.Looks like a young Thurman Thomas.

RB 5-10 175 Houston, Texas - Spring Woods HS

"There's so much support for the football team. When we walked into the stadium, they were screaming our names saying 'we want you to be a Husker'. It was amazing. The facilities are great. Everything is top-notch. Like the weight room is crazy. Everything there is top of the line.?

This kid has blinding speed! However the highlight doesn't show much of him hitting any holes up the middle. Everyone is fast at the D1 level. I wonder how he does hitting the 1 or 3 gap with athority? Looks to have great hands though. He would be a good catch for Neb. A little coaching and developement and he has the potential to be very good.

p.s. he camped at ok st, & has visited tx tech & NU - they are basically his top 3, so we shall see, but he will not choice a school until he sees all of his top 5 - therefore, he has yet to set official visits to tcu, ks st, & ok st

Welcome to the team Marcus. Maybe the coaches want him as a return specialist. At 5'9, he seems a little short to play corner but if he can jump and run and if he has a knack for the football then I wouldn't oppose to him playing db.

On the radio they were talking that they could move this kid to cornerback. They also says he has good "football" speed, and that the 4.4 doesn't lie

 

I hope he is not moved to cornerback. Grixby is fast, but his size has always been a problem. At 5'8", he just will not match up to most receivers.
