St. Vincent-St. Mary HS cornerback Doran Grant recently made some visits to a few schools on his spring break last week. He went to Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State. Although one school didn't receive an earlier planned visit for that week. "I was supposed to go to Georgia Tech last week, but things got mixed up with flights in stuff," Grant said. "I'll possibly go down there in the summer so I can stay for a night and hang with the coaches, see the campus more, and take in all the facilities."
Grant says he keeps in touch with defensive backs Coach Charles Kelly of Georgia Tech. It's been that way since last summer when he camped at Georgia Tech and earned an offer. Grant hinted that it may be pretty hard to get down to Atlanta in the summer, but that he'd like to.
The star cornerback currently holds 26 offers with Oklahoma, Arizona, and Boston College extending them most recently. "It's like a new batch of offers are coming in every week. It's pretty hard to try to distinguish between them all with new ones coming along," he said. "I'd say that Ohio State, Michigan State, USC, Michigan, and West Virginia are the schools recruiting me the hardest."
Grant says he won't be making any visits until the summer. For now it's all about his track season where he runs the 110 hurdles and the 4 X 200 relay for his team. On May 2nd Grant will head to Penn State for a Nike Training Camp. After that, he'll be making a bus tour to schools across the country. He will also be competing at the SPARQ championships at Oregon in July. A decision on a school won't be coming for a while, though. "I'm thinking I'll probably announce at the Under Armour All-American game or right after before signing day," he said.
Despite new attention arriving almost every week in the form of new offers, Grant listed a current top seven schools. "Ohio State is at number one. Then there's Michigan State at two, Michigan at three, West Virginia at four, USC is five, and there's a tie right now at six between Penn State and Georgia Tech."
It seems the home-state school is in good position right now for Grant, but the summer should be a big telling factor for his recruitment. Schools like Georgia Tech and USC will be anxious to get him on campus to show what they can offer.
