It's a busy week on the horizon for the nation's top
Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson standout
Rashaun Grant has three schools lined up for in-home visits
and begins rehabilitation for an ankle injury that prematurely ended his
"They say I should expect a full recovery," said
Grant, who broke his left ankle in October. "I'm getting my (hard) cast off
Tuesday and they're giving me one I can put on or take off whenever I need
to. They're saying six weeks at the most, which is good so I can start
working out again soon. I feel real good right now. When it first happened,
I was scared that some people may back off me. I didn't know how serious it
was. But nobody did."
Those who have hung with Grant (5-11, 190, 4.4) will
begin making some in-home visits this week. He plans to host Georgia Tech on
Monday, North Carolina on Tuesday and N.C. State on Wednesday.
The latter two could be key meetings as the Tar
Heels and Wolfpack are jockeying to land one of his final two official
visits. The other three are filled by Georgia Tech (12/13), Florida (1/10)
and Miami (1/17).
Grant, a member of the
team, said the Hurricanes continue to lead for his services. The Yellow
Jackets are running a close second, "but I don't want to limit myself or
anything. There's still a lot of coaches I'd like to talk to."
