Ohio cornerback Doran Grant's ability has never been in question, especially with his lofty ranking and wheelbarrow full of scholarship offers. On his early list are the Michigan Wolverines -- and the Buckeye State elite prospect recently called Rich Rodriguez to touch base with the Maize and Blue. "I called him up and talked to him to get to know him a little bit more, and to get to know the Michigan Wolverines family more and more , and talking about their new facilities and things like that," Grant told GoBlueWolverine.

"Yes, they are. I'm
probably coming up for a spring practice or the spring game, but I don't know
the dates yet though."
While Grant has been to Michigan
a handful of times already for their games against Western Michigan and Ohio State,
as well as a game in his sophomore year, he's never gotten the behind the
scenes look at the University. His
spring unofficial will afford him that chance, as well as answering some of his
"Just mainly, first of all just getting to know the people
more, and seeing how the coaches are and how the people are, if they're
good. I want to see the depth chart
