Lincoln Southwest defensive back TaeVyn Grixby is quickly racking up scholarship offers from NCAA Division II schools.

But after camp season ends in June, he might be added to the list of 2019 Nebraskans with Division I offers.

Grixby received his first offer from Minnesota State on May 31. After attending camps at Sioux Falls and South Dakota State last weekend, Grixby received his second Division II offer from Sioux Falls.

"Wayne State, Sioux Falls and Augustana have been in contact with me the most," Grixby said. "Mostly Division II schools in the (Northern Sun) and some FCS schools have been in contact with me."

Grixby attended junior days at South Dakota State and Drake earlier this year and plans to attend Nebraska's Friday Night Lights camp this month.

Grixby says he is currently 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, and has been busy with the Silver Hawks' basketball and football teams since the school year ended. Gaining weight — but not losing speed — is his offseason goal.

"I’m trying to get my weight up and get bigger," he said. "Right now I am at 180 and I want to get to be about 190 and keep my speed."

He plans to major in physical therapy or exercise science once he reaches college. He is looking for more than just a football program.

"The culture of the school is important to me because I’m going to be there for four years so I might as well enjoy it while I’m there," he said. "Facilities have to be nice because I want to get better and having good facilities will help me."

Before choosing a school, he is hoping to improve on his four-interception season and help Southwest make the playoffs again.

"We have to develop a line on the offensive and defensive side," he said. 'We have athletes that can make plays, but you can’t do anything without a line. On defense we need to be in attack mode from day one and bully teams around.​"
