"I verbally committed to Iowa yesterday when I took a visit," Grant said. "I always knew I wanted my decision out of the way by the start of my season, and everything was just right with Iowa."
In fact, Grant was accompanied by his parents, all his grandparents, sister, girlfriend, aunt and uncle, and one of his aunts from Minnesota. Obviously, Grant has good family support behind him.
"It was nice to have all my family there with me. We asked Coach Ferentz if anyone had done that before, and he said it was one of the bigger showings he's seen. He just shook my hand after I committed and let me know how happy he was to have me as a Hawkeye."
