The 6-foot combo guard also considered Vanderbilt, Michigan, and Virginia Commonwealth. "He loves the school," said Myles, who advised Grant on his decision. It's the ACC, a big time, competitive league. And also, Coach Haith had recruited him out of high school, so there was a relationship. It felt like the perfect fit to him because of that."
Grant averaged 5.6 points and 1.4 assists in 29 games for the Wildcats and shot a team-leading 46 percent from the three-point line. He played a prominent role in some early-season victories-- including 18 points in a miraculous comeback win over LSU on December 6th but fell out of rotation during Big East play, and saw his minutes dwindle thereafter.
