IN THE PORTAL: JAIRUS GRISSOM (EMU ATH

Jairus Grissom’s transferring out from Eastern Michigan. Grissom was positioned all across the offense — quarterback, running back, wide receiver, then quarterback again — but all only to limited success in his time at EMU.

Over the last three seasons, Grissom’s made 15 game appearances and has picked up 222 yards from scrimmage in 33 plays with three total touchdowns. As a sophomore [vs. Western Michigan], he was 4-of-5 throwing for 50 yards. Grissom was a local get, and a top-25 athlete in the state of Michigan out of River Rouge HS, so there were rightfully a lot of different attempts to get his speed and strength on the field. Ultimately, things just didn’t work out for Grissom at Eastern, and now he’s in the portal to hopefully lock down a position (just one) somewhere else.

Grissom, by my count, is the eighth player to transfer out from EMU, the sixth with junior or later eligibility. Underclassmen CB Jerodd Vines and DL Vincent Boyd entered their names in the portal pretty recently, too.
