At this point, the 5-foot-9, 165-pound speedster has liked what he has heard from a trio of the schools that have offered.
"I talk to the coaches at South Florida a lot," Grant said. "I've also heard from East Carolina some. I talked to like two of their coaches over the phone. I also talked to the Rutgers coaches."
Grant talked about what the staff at each of those three schools has been saying.
"The South Florida staff tells me that I would start at slot if I went there," Grant said. "They tell me I have a chance to start my freshman year. They say that the ball would be coming to me often. They talk about the opportunity that they want to give me to be involved in what they are doing."
"East Carolina just said they like what I can do from the snap and when I get the ball in my hands," Grant said. "They said I can make big plays."
"Rutgers stands out to me," Grant said. "They told me that I was going to get the ball like 80 or 90 times. They said some of the same things that USF basically said. They just said I would be a big part of their offense."
Grant has yet to take any visits, he hopes to visit East Carolina, Rutgers, and South Florida, as well as others, over the summer. No specific dates have been scheduled.
