Down to two for Fullerton's Grant

While he continues to relax at his parents' Florida home for another week, Fullerton DT Uriah Grant (6-1, 285) is still focused on recruiting and on Tuesday night he got a visit from one of his two favorites. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented defensive line prospect and he updated us on where things currently stand as far as a decision is concerned...

"Coach (Nick) Holt was here to visit with me and my family," Grant told JCFootball.com Tuesday evening. "He was down here to talk about things and just to meet with my family.

"It couldn't have gone better actually. I really loved Washington when I visited there and I really felt like they answered all of my questions while I was there, but I wanted him to meet with my family and for them to get comfortable with him too.

"We just spent time talking about the Huskies and we talked about the Holiday Bowl a little bit too. That was a great game and you could see they were having fun and flying around. It's really building there and they are getting ready to turn the corner."

Grant said he wishes the Huskies had played like that all season.

"I've been watching them all year and I felt like they had the guys to play like that all along," Grant said. "It takes time for guys to gel though and sometimes, during a season, you just start to 'get it' you know, where you understand and that's when the game slows down for you and you start to have fun and fly around and hit people."

The talented defensive tackle, who led the state of California with 16 tackles-for-loss to go along with 41 tackles and 5.5 sacks, told JCFootball.com that he plans to visit Ole Miss on January 21st and will make his decision shortly after that.

"It's down to Mississippi and Washington," Grant said. "I really like both staffs and where their programs are headed. Yeah, Mississippi is closer to where I'm from, but there's something about Washington that I really feel right now.

"Coach (Houston) Nutt and another coach will be here on Friday and coach (Steve) Sarkisian will be here sometime next week to see me too.

"I'll take my visit (to Ole Miss) and then I will sit down and weigh things out. I won't take too long to decide after that."

Grant plans to sign with a school on February 2nd and he will have two years to play two with whichever school gets his letter-of-intent.
