According to Team Takeover coach Keith Stevens, Grant is headed to Syracuse.
"Style of play and the coaching staff," Stevens told Scout.com. "Coach Red made sure he was a priority for them."
Grant is Jim Boeheim's first verbal pledge in the 2012 recruiting class. Adrian Autry, who is also known as Red, has strong ties to the D.C. area and used to coach with Keith Stevens squad.
Grant is rated as a four-star prospect and No. 50 overall in the 2012 recruiting class.
