Elite Ohio junior thinking about visits

Doran Grant is one of the top athletes to attend Akron (Ohio) St. Vincent-St. Mary since two-sport star and current NBA all-star LeBron James, and he figures to rate as one of the top prospects in the state for the Class of 2011 when those rankings come out.

The 5-foot-10, 171-pound cornerback has received offers from every Big Ten school as well as Georgia, Georgia Tech, and some other schools outside the region.

He has been invited to attend junior days at Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Ohio State and plenty of other schools. Where does he plan on going?

"I'm pretty sure I'll make it to Michigan, Ohio State and Pitt for their (junior days)," he said. "I don't know about Georgia. I'm going to try to get down there for that but I don't know."

Grant also plans on participating in the Raw Talent bus tour this summer - the same event that gained him so much exposure in the past.

"Latwan Anderson and Christian Bryant trained with me at Raw Talent, and the Saturday before the Army game I was training, doing 7-on-7's and 1-on-1's together with them. I was asking them about how they felt about the game.

"Me and Latwan went together this past summer on the Raw Talent bus tour, just dominating people and getting our (reputation) up. Then Christian Bryant, I ran track with him. He's a pretty good friend."

Anderson is heading to West Virginia next year, while Bryant is still undecided as to where he will spend his college years. Is there a chance Grant would want to follow either of them?

"I don't know, we'll see," he said. "West Virginia just started sending me letters and came by my school."
