Stephenson High School picked up a big 2nd round win over Harrison Friday evening, and star DB Michael Grant took a trip on Saturday to check out one of his favorite schools.
"I went to UF/FSU. I rode down there with Josh Johnson and his
dad," Grant said.
What were his impressions?
"It was a pretty nice atmosphere. Fans were going crazy and throwing hot
dogs at the refs because of some of the calls. It was wild. They were into the
Who sits atop his current leader board?
"I like Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Miami, and Arkansas. Georgia and
Florida are my leaders."
What has set the Dawgs and Gators apart from the pack?
Georgia: "It's really close to home and I've been to a lot of games
there. I know their commitment A.J. Bryant and how hard he works. I want to play
with someone like that. We've known each other since we were 13 or 14, and we get
along real good. Of course Kregg (Lumpkin), T.J. (Gartrell), and DeMario

Playing offense really excites me, and that kind of gives Georgia an advantage
over Florida because of that."
Florida: "They are losing a couple of DB's, and I could play really
early. I like the atmosphere at the stadium, and the coaches. They have a great
track program, and I want to do that as well. Track is basically an individual
sport though, and it's not the most important thing in my decision. They do have
an advantage over Georgia with the track programs thing."
What does Grant bring to the table that he feels sets him apart from his
"Speed man. I can run with any wide receiver. I also have good size with
my height and all. I can bring the physical play."
Grant plans to visit all of the schools on his list, but he may pass on a
trip to Arkansas, though he hasn't yet decided. Stephenson High School will once
again head south this Friday as they take on #1 ranked Camden County in the 3rd
round. How does Michael like his chances?
"I think were going to win state. Our defense is playing so well right
now, and were really confident. The line has been good all season. It looks nice
