DePaul Officially Adds Austin Grandstaff

DePaul head coach Dave Leitao officially announced today that Austin Grandstaff will join the Blue Demons as a transfer.

Austin Grandstaff, a 6-4 shooting guard originally from Rockwall, Texas will officially enroll at DePaul in July. 

Grandstaff left the Oklahoma basketball program in May after spending one semester in Norman. 

Austin previously played for Ohio State. In his freshman season at OSU, Austin appeared in 10 games and averaged 4.4 points per game while playing 11.5 minutes per game for the Buckeyes.

Grandstaff will have three seasons of eligibility at DePaul once he has followed NCAA transfer guidelines.

“Austin is a highly-skilled guard with great positional size,” said Leitao. “Throughout his prep career, both in high school and on the AAU circuit, Austin demonstrated an exceptional ability to score the basketball.  Many people know him for his shooting prowess, and he is an excellent shooter who has range that extends well beyond the three-point line, but Austin also possesses the ability to make plays for both himself and his teammates off the bounce.”

Coming out of high school, Grandstaff was rated as a four star prospect by Scout.com. He was ranked as the 60th best player in the nation and the 15th best shooting guard in the class of 2015.

“We are not only adding a talented player to our roster, we are adding a quality young man that is hungry to grow and improve as a player, as a student and as a person,” Leitao said. “We look forward to Austin joining our program later this summer and are thrilled that he chose to be a part of what we are building here at DePaul.”
