``Coach Jay Wright is a great guy who lets his players play," Grant said. "I like their whole staff and really like the atmosphere over there. Miami is an up-and-coming program in the ACC. They had a good year this season."

``I need the extra year to become a better defender and get stronger – both mentally and physically," Grant said.
