He visits Ole Miss this weekend. He's already seen Washington. For the Fullerton (Calif.) College defensive tackle, the next few days are all about gathering the final pieces of information. Then, when he returns to Florida Sunday, he'll take a few days to make a decision.
"It's right down the middle," he said. "It's even. Everything seems so similar (between the schools). That's why I've been going back and forth with it every day."
Other colleges have continued to recruit Grant -- a three-star defensive tackle, who will return to Fullerton later this month to finish up coursework.
He considered taking a trip to Miami, Fla., last weekend to visit the Hurricanes, but decided against it.
Again, he has his finalists picked out.
The 6-foot-1, 285-pound Grant had an in-home visit with the Washington coaching staff earlier this week.
Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt called him Tuesday. Defensive line coach Terry Price followed with another call a day later.
"It was what coaches are supposed to say, you know? Coming in, playing right away and making an impact on the team," he said. "Ole Miss' situation, they're losing four defensive tackles to graduation. It's kind of a unique situation.
"Last year, they were a young defense, but they lacked leadership. Me coming in right away, that's the type of guy I am. I'm instantly a leader, because I'm going to work hard; I'm going to give all I got every play. That's what the coaches really like about me."
Washington, like Ole Miss, offers a unique opportunity. Both schools are in need of an impact player at defensive tackle. Even more, both need a leader.
But the Huskies consider Grant a missing piece along their defensive line, which already includes Semisi Tokolahi, who led a late-season revival up front, before suffering a broken ankle against Washington State.
"Washington wants me to come in and play right away," he said. "You know, coming in and being a leader and making an impact on the team, not just on the field, but as a leader. They want to put me next to their nose guard, and me and him just dominating the Pac-10."
Grant is one of at least 26 prospects expected on campus this weekend. He's also one of the most coveted. Grant has emerged as arguably Ole Miss' top target at defensive tackle for the signing class of 2011.
He played in all 11 games last season for Fullerton, collecting 42 total tackles, including 23 solos and 17 tackles for loss. He had six sacks, and even blocked a kick.
"The things I'm going to be looking for this weekend would be how the coaches are with players that are already there," Grant said. "I want to see how the area is in general. I have to feel comfortable. I'm sure when I go it's going to feel like home, just for the fact I'm from the South.
"I just want to see how comfortable it is there, and how the relationships are with the guys already on the team."
He has built strong relationships with Nutt and Price. Those relationships are what have kept Ole Miss near the top of his list throughout the process. Grant has been most impressed with Nutt, who he considers a players' coach.
"My relationship with Coach Price and Coach Nutt is great," he said. "Coach Nutt, his enthusiasm, his love for the game, his knowledge of the game is some of the best I've ever seen. I've been around a lot of coaches, but he's the best I've seen so far.
"You make a play, Coach Nutt will come in and give you a high-five in the air. He's just one of the guys, you know? He's a players' coach. I really admire that about Coach Nutt."
For Grant, decision day is nearing. And when finally chooses a school, be it Ole Miss or Washington, there will be no wavering. He'll be done. It's why he's not waiting until signing day Feb. 2.
"I don't want to leave that other school in a bind," Grant said. "I want that other school to be able to go out and get another player."
