Miramar (Fla.) Everglades defensive lineman Uriah Grant is busy arranging his official visit schedule and currently has two programs out in front in the race for his services.
"Right now, I had five visits set up and cancelled three I still got two," Grant said. "I will visit Wisconsin real early in December (Dec. 8) and South Carolina on the weekend of Jan. 12. I'm setting one up with Michigan State probably November/December, I will set up with LSU and my last choice will be Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Missouri or Rutgers."
The 6-foot, 251-pounder holds a scholarship offer from nearly all the programs he is considering.

"The only school that I've been talking to that hasn't offered me is LSU," he said.
Currently, two schools stand out to Grant.
"Missouri or Rutgers is in the lead right now," he said. "The thing I like about Missouri is that they are similar to our style. Their aggressiveness and tenacity in going to the ball is impressive and they are a young group with a lot of heart and passion for the game."
He also is impressed with the Scarlet Knights' season to date.
"From what I've seen from last year, their coached promised they would have a good season," Grant said. "They are 6-0 and have a young team with a good family atmosphere."
Currently, Grant is having a good season, but his team is in a dogfight to make the state playoffs.
"My season for me is going good, but for our team it's just going ok," he said. "We are 4-3. I have about 50 tackles and five or six sacks. We have to win next week to get in position for the playoffs."
Grant currently has no timeframe for a commitment.
"My timeframe will depend on visits," he said. "It also depends on what colleges want me to play. Some are recruiting me as a weak defensive end."
Grant is the nation's No. 46 defensive tackle prospect and is the No. 86 overall prospect in the state of Florida for this year's class.
