Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Grant Motter from Hattiesburg, Miss., has given a verbal commitment to play college golf for Mississippi State in the fall of 2014. He also made unofficial visits to Southern Mississippi and Auburn.

“I really like Coach Sean (Covich) and Coach Clay (Homan),” Motter said of choosing the school. “They’re great guys.”

Motter, who plays for Oak Grove High School, won the Mississippi High School 6A state tournament as an eighth-grader and again this past spring as a sophomore. He was 10th at the Mississippi State Amateur and was third at his U.S. Junior Amateur qualifier. Motter also won 11 of 12 high school starts last season and maintained a 71.7 scoring average.
