The Spartans are attempting to fend off a furious effort by the University of South Carolina for Grant's service.
Grant emerged out of nowhere at the South Florida MSL combine and the Everglades High School (Miramar, Fla.) star has turned heads all over the south. He now is drawing interest from Wisconsin, Pittsburgh, Penn State, Georgia Tech, Iowa and LSU in addition to the aforementioned two teams.
What is attracting schools to the senior is his combination of size and explosive speed. The 6-foot-2, 248-pound Grant has an 80-yard interception return to his credit.
According to Scout.com's Alex Hesquijarosa, Grant will attend the Down-N-Dirty combine on June 23-26 and MSU representatives are expected to attend. He also is expected to camp at Lousiana State University.
South Carolina is believed to be the team to beat for Grant's services, followed by Wisconsin.
