Grant to Official with ECU

While the Shrine Bowl is famous for its exhibit of the Carolinas top recruits, it has also been known to uncover some sleepers. This year, one of those sleepers playing in the annual all-star game between North and South Carolina is 6-foot, 225-pound linebacker Quantres Grant.

"I have a few colleges recruiting me and my biggest one is ECU," said Grant. "They [ECU] have kind of not really offered me. They said it all depends on my SAT score. So if I do good on the SAT then most likely I'll be going there."

Grant, who is a product of Kannapolis (N.C.) Brown, is also seeing interest from Nebraska, Marshall, and Lenoir Rhyne.

To learn his scholarship offer status and to get a better feel for the schools, Grant will be spending most of January on official visits. Two schools have already begun to schedule trips.

"I'll be going to ECU the first week of January [the 6th]," said Grant. "I'll be going to Lenoir Rhyne either the second or third week of January."

Although everything is very much up in the air with scholarship offers, two schools have begun to stand out for Grant.

"My number one school would be between ECU and Nebraska," said Grant. "[I like those two schools because] of their football program and they got what I want to major in."

During his senior season, Grant help lead Brown High School to a 13-2 with his 150 tackles (42 solo).

Grant is part of a deadly North Carolina linebacking corps that also includes Scout.com four-star recruit Brandon Spikes, Wake Forest commit Matt Woodlief, N.C. State commit Nate Irving, and UNC commit Deunta Williams.
