When Will 4-star Grant Make Decision?

DeMatha High (Hyattsville, Md.) four-star forward Jerami Grant is down to Rutgers, Syracuse and Notre Dame, and a decision was expected by now. However, the 6-foot-6 Grant could be changing his timetable. Come inside to find out what the latest is with one of the nation's top players in the 2012 class.

DeMatha High (Hyattsville, Md.) four-star forward Jerami Grant could make his college decision in the next 24 hours, or it could be another week.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound Grant, who can play the wing, is down to Rutgers, Syracuse and Notre Dame, and while early the week it looked like a decision was coming very soon, that is no longer the case.

"I talked to him today and he wasn't sure," DeMatha coach Mike Jones said. "He's struggling right now because he knows he has three great choices. I wish I could tell you it's going to happen at a certain time, but it has not."

Grant made visits to each of his three finalists, and Rutgers impressed him in a big way.

"I don't know what he was expecting, but he was impressed so much by the campus, he talked about officially going to Syracuse and Notre Dame for visits," Jones said. "That's not the case anymore. I think he's in a decision-making mode."

Grant's affinity for Rutgers came from his visit last month, which included a full campus tour, and because he knows Scarlet Knights coach Mike Rice and assistant coach David Cox.

"I think (the Rutgers interest) is probably becaue he had a great relationship with coach Cox and coach Rice, and they did a great job with his family," Jones said. "He had never been there before, and he liked how close it was to …New York City. But he enjoyed it. He got to see a lot of campus. He came away very impressed."

However, Jones is uncertain when a decision will come.

"He could call me (Thursday) and it wouldn't surprise me," Jones said. "He could wait until next week."

The trio of schools also visited DeMatha High in the last few days as they try to land the versatile Grant.

"He can play in paint, guard multiple positions, and play just about anywhere … on the floor," Jones said. "He's very good at catching and shooting on the wing, and posting up."
