CB Grant Haley has connection to Florida

The top junior prospects in the state of Georgia participated in the Rising Seniors game Monday in Atlanta.

One of those prospects was Atlanta (Ga.) Lovett cornerback Grant Haley who had a quite but solid game on Monday.

“It went alright out there,” Haley said. “I didn’t get that much action, I only had one pass breakup and I had a tackle. They stayed away from my side most of the day and they also ran the ball a lot during the game.”

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Haley was able to go up against the best during practice and was also able to learn how to handle himself off of the field throughout the week.

“It was a good week for me,” Haley said. “I got to see how I stacked up against the others, and I thought I was as good or even better than the other defensive backs. But the week was fun even though we didn’t do that much in practice. I learned a ton of stuff for off of the field though.”

While Haley is just now finishing his junior football season, he has already picked up an offer from Florida.

Haley also has a connection to Florida as his head coach at Lovett is Will Muschamp’s brother, Mike Muschamp.

During the season, Haley didn’t take many visits, but he said he is about ready to turn his attention to the recruiting process.

“The first thing I’m doing is heading out to San Antonio for the U.S. Army underclassmen combine on Friday,” Haley said. “But after that I’m going to turn my attention to recruiting and start taking visits. I know I will visit Florida sometime soon and a few other schools.

In his junior season, Haley had two interceptions and also scored three times while playing running back and receiver for his Lovett team.
