Relationship with Matt Lubick Key For Colorado Wide Receiver Commit Grant Page

June 20, 2021

A second wide receiver has joined the 2022 recruiting class for Nebraska. Colorado wideout Grant Page (6-3, 185) announced his commitment to the Huskers via Twitter on Sunday. For Page, it was a decision that he had been sitting on for some time. He knew last week that he wanted to be a Husker but he waited to announce so he could call the schools recruiting him and let them know personally.

“You know, I’m just so thankful and blessed that they all reached out to me and they offered me,” Page told Hail Varsity. “So, just out of respect, I should just call or texts all of them. I told them, ‘Hey, thank you so much for opportunity you have given me.’ Just telling them man-to-man like, ‘Thanks so much’ was something I wanted to do.”

Page took his official visit to Nebraska the weekend of June 11. The weekend before that he took an official visit to Kanas State. While he was on his trip to Nebraska, there was no shortage of things that stood out to him about his future home.

“Everything stood out,” Page said. “I just felt in my gut that was the best decision. I felt good about Nebraska.

“Me and Coach (Matt) Lubick have had such a good relationship since he offered me. We’ve always had a great relationship and just seeing him in person was good. He is from Colorado too, so on the visit we talked about home, we’re talking about Colorado not just football stuff.”

When it comes to how the Huskers plan to use Page in the future they see him making a difference playing outside receiver. Since he is 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, he can go up and high point the football. Page is also a physical wideout which the coaching staff really likes about him. While he knows that it’ll take hard work, Page is hoping to get to Lincoln and compete for playing time.

When he was in Lincoln for his official visit Page was hosted by quarterback Heinrich Haarberg one night and wide receiver Alante Brown another. It was fun for Page to hang out with his potential future quarterback and they got along well.

With his commitment now public, Page will turn his attention towards his senior season. There are plenty of things he would like to improve on before he gets to Lincoln.

“Honestly, I’m just trying to work on every part of my game,” Page said. “I am trying to to take my game to a whole new level. I’m trying to improve my route-running, ball skills, my physicality, just everything. I’m not satisfied yet where I am on the field yet but I’m just gonna keep working.”
