Xavier Grindle drawing lots of interest 

February, 10, 2011
Running back Xavier Grindle (Columbia, Miss./East Marion), who rushed for over 1,300 yards as a junior, already has offers from in-state progrmas Mississippi State and Southern Miss., but is getting a lot of interest from schools outside the state like Tennessee, Nebraska, Florida, Florida State, USC and Texas.

"Sometimes I have to catch myself on the sidelines because I am jumping around, going crazy after some of his runs," East Marion coach Anthony Dillon. "I think he's the total package and he brings a lot to the table for us and will to a college."

The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder loves the big run, but also enjoys pounding the rock.
