Grant Enjoys Visit to Death Valley

Many of the Tigers' 2005 signees were onhand for Saturday's Orange & White game. One of the players that caught everyone's eye was 6-5, 325 pound Jamarcus Grant. Find out what the powerful lineman thought about his visit to Tiger Town in this update. <BR>

Mullins High standout Jamarcus Grant traveled to Death Valley to watch his future teammates this past Saturday. "I had a real good time. I enjoyed watching the team. Hopefully I can be a part of that next fall," Grant told Monday evening.

Grant spent a lot of time talking with the other members of the outstanding 2005 recruiting class. "Yeah, I talked to a lot of them. Most of the recruiting class was there it seemed like. They all said they are ready to get up there and play. I also got to talk with some of the current players like Anthony Waters, Charles Bennett and Bobby Hutchinson," said Grant.

The Mullins offensive lineman continues to keep in touch with future Tiger Rendrick Taylor. "I talk to Rendrick from time to time. We get along real good. I talked with him some on Saturday too."

The prize recruit hopes to be in Tiger Town in July. "All I need to do is turn in my transcripts now. I am hoping to go up for the second summer session," said Grant.

The Palmetto standout has been working hard to get ready to compete next fall. "I haven't been on a scale in a while but I have been lifting very hard.

"I talked with Coach Scott, Coach Swinney, Coach Blackwell and Coach Hobby on Saturday. I like the coaches. Coach Scott said he was ready for me to get there. He said he was ready for me to begin the learning process."

Grant hopes to be able to compete for playing time next fall, but if he has to redshirt next year he is ready to learn everything he can. "They said if I come in and prove myself I can play next year. I hope I do, but if I don't then I want to just sit back and learn everything I can. I want to learn all of the tricks of the trade," added Grant.

Finally, the offensive line looked good according to the star lineman. "They looked good. It's still early. They just need to get in the grove."
