Michigan prep runer and senior-to-be Grant Fisher is going to be one heavily recruited individual this summer.
Fisher had himself a banner cross country and track season this year that was capped off when he defeated a stacked field at the Adidas Dream Mile in New York City this past weekend.
Fisher lowered his personal best in the mile to 4:02.02 to defeat Matthew Maton who was just over a second back at 4:03
Al told, eleven high school runners cracked the 4:10 barrier on a fairly blustery day.
The win capped a remarkable junior season for Fisher who won the Footlocker, National cross country race in the fall.
And he's not just a one trick wonder.
Fisher is also an elite soccer player.
Fisher is a soccer “baby” who continues playing year-round, shouldering two rigorous sports daily. Fisher plays for the Grand Blanc high school team in the fall and the Michigan Wolves club the rest of the year. As an outstanding center-midfielder, Fisher has been selected for the U.S. Soccer Olympic Development Program and has played international matches around the country as well as in Costa Rica.
With that kind of junior resume under his belt, you would expect some of the big names like Oregon and Colorado to come calling, but don't be surprised if Fisher stays in his home state of Michigan for college.
No word yet on his official choice.
