Michael Grant, the #10 ranked corner in the country by TheInsiders.com, is enrolling at the University of Arkansas as part of the class of 2004 after originally signing a letter of intent with Georgia.
Due to the Tony Cole basketball fallout from 2003, Georgia enacted a committee to do background checks on all enrolling athletes coming to the school. When they reviewed Michael Grant's admission, they flagged him due to an incident at South Gwinnett High School when he was an underclassmen.
Grant was denied his admission to the Univerity. He is immediately free to enroll at Arkansas as part of the class of 2004 and will be eligible to play for coach Houston Nutt this Fall.
"We believe things happen for a reason," said Stephenson Head Coach Ron Gartrell. "While this changes things for him in terms of travel, he still has an opportunity to play for an SEC football team and a nationally known track program."
"I think Mark Richt really helped Michael with his reccomendation to the Arkansas coaching staff. It was not a coaches decision to not admit him to Georgia," Gartrell added.
This is a loss to UGA's nationally ranked recruiting class but a huge shot in the arm to the Razorbacks who are trying to replace another Atlanta CB in Batman Carroll.
