2019 DB Marvin Grant visits Michigan, gets an offer

Detroit King sophomore defensive back Marvin Grant picked up Big Ten offer number two on Tuesday when he visited Michigan. He spoke to Scout about his visit here.

Marvin Grant, a long, 6-foot-2, 185-pound defensive back from Detroit King, visited the Michigan Wolverines on Tuesday and was offered a scholarship by the maize and blue.

They now join Toledo and Iowa on his offer list.

"It means a lot," he said, "but it's always great to get a free education and play ball no matter where you go, but it's great."

Grant played free safety and running back for the Crusaders as a sophomore, helping them repeat as state champions. His frame will allow him to project to multiple positions at the next level, although safety is the most likely spot.

He spent a good amount of time with Michigan's defensive staff during his visit.

"I didn't get a chance to meet [head coach Jim Harbaugh] today but I'm looking forward to meeting him the next time I visit. I talked to [defensive coordinator Don Brown] and [defensive backs coach Brian Smith]."

Grant did get to bump into two former King defensive backs who are at Michigan now, Lavert Hill and Ambry Thomas. Thomas, an early enrollee at Michigan, played with Grant last fall.

"I talked to Lavert but it was like a hi and bye because he was in a rush, but I got a chance to talk to Ambry and he said it's a great school and there is a lot of support and Michigan is one of the schools that can prepare you for the next level."

At this time, Grant does not have any further visits planned.
