Grant to Learn About Syracuse

Wideout Marcus Grant already held offers from Connecticut and Iowa when he picked up his offer from Syracuse this week. We caught up with him on Sunday night to speak with him about the Orange, but right now the Lawrence Academy product doesn't know many details about the school.

Marcus Grant, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver from Lawrence Academy in Groton, Mass., received an offer from Syracuse this past week and spoke to him over the weekend to find out what he knows about the Orange.

"I picked up an offer from Syracuse recently," Grant said. "They talked to my coach the day after they sent out the letter and said they were offering me as a wide receiver. They have some of our former players at Syracuse in Charley Loeb and Ollie Taylor, so there is a history there between our programs."

"I haven't talked to the coaches on the phone yet, but I'm supposed to call them on the phone soon," Grant mentioned. "I am going to get around to calling them soon and I'll definitely talk to them when I camp there in late June. I know Syracuse has a great football tradition and that they've had great players come out of there like Donovan McNabb, Dwight Freeney and Marvin Harrison, but other than that all I really know about is their basketball team, so I'll really be playing catch up when it comes to them. Obviously their communications school is well-known, but like I said, that's about it."

"I'm interested in Syracuse just as much as Iowa and Connecticut, but this recruiting process just gets so busy on top of schoolwork and life in general that I haven't gotten the time to call the coaches and give them the time we'll need to talk yet which I want to do, so as soon as I can do that I'm definitely going to hit them up to learn more about the university."

As a junior, Grant caught 22 passes for 413 yards and six touchdowns. He also carried the ball 25 times for 349 yards and four more scores. He had three punt return touchdowns to add to those totals as well. On defense, he had 31 tackles and two interceptions from his cornerback position.
