Grant Fleming Will Camp at LSU
Despite fewer numbers during his junior year due to offenses keying on the 6'3'', 205 lb. safety, he was recently nominated to the preseason all-American team.
Schools contacting Fleming include LSU, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
"I've liked Notre Dame for a long time," Fleming said. "I've heard great things about their campus and academics."
Grant also attended the LSU junior day, and came away feeling good about the experience.
"[LSU] has real nice facilities," he commented, "And a great team atmosphere."
Growing up just across the Atchafalaya basin from Baton Rouge, Fleming has had the opportunity to attend several games in Tiger Stadium, and says he loves the electricity you can feel in the stadium during the games.
Although he has spent his high school career at the safety position, many coaches, including those at LSU, have discussed with Grant the possibility of converting him to linebacker.
The Bayou Bengals, who have produced hard hitting linebackers like Bradie James and Trev Faulk in the past, could prove a good fit for Fleming should he add some weight before next fall.
Though speed has never been considered a weakness for Fleming, who ran the 40 in 4.6 seconds, he has been working on his speed this spring by running on the varsity track team.
He is still unsure of how he will train over the summer, but did say that he is considering various camps, and anticipates making official visits to various schools, including LSU, in the fall to help narrow down his list of possibilities.
"I'm not too sure of where I want to go at all," he said, "But I'm looking forward to going to see them and getting to know them."
Academically, Fleming has maintained a solid 3.3 grade point average, and is awaiting the results of the ACT, which he took at the beginning of April.
