Doran Grant Checks In With Michigan

The highly rated defensive back recently called up Michigan's headman to touch base with the Wolverines and map out their recruitment of him.

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.

In the conversation, Grant took more of a listening approach than firing off questions at the Wolverines head coach.

"I didn't really ask too many questions, but we talked about me coming up there and us getting to know each other more ... and to check out the facilities and meet the coaching staff. Basically coming up there for a spring practice or for the spring game. That's pretty much it though."

Grant had been invited to all of the Michigan junior days over the winter, but a busy basketball schedule kept in the way of him actually making the trek to Ann Arbor. Now, that's in the past for him.

"No, we lost in the regional finals ... but we're waiting on track and I'm going to try to knock out all of my spring visits."

The question burning on Wolverine tongues, is whether or not the Maize and Blue are on Grant's spring travel itinerary.

"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 questions.

"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 situation, because I'm not interested in sitting … that and just meshing with the coaches and players."

To get those questions answered, an unofficial visit is the next step.
