Jerami Grant to Syracuse



Via ESPN's Paul Biancardi

Jerami Grant, an ESPNU 100 SF, decided on Friday that "it felt right" to commit to Syracuse over Notre Dame and Rutgers. He is the first commit for the Orange in the 2012 class.

"I chose Syracuse for a couple of reasons," Grant said. "One, I felt I really fit into their style of play. They do go up and down a lot. They also have had great success with players who have versatile games like me. Plus, I have a great relationship with assistant coach and former Syracuse standout Adrian "Red" Autry and coach Jim Boeheim came to a lot of my games"

However, it was difficult for Grant from Hyattsville, Md., to turn down playing for Notre Dame where his brother Jerian plays. "Playing with my brother would have been great but at the end I had to do what I felt was best for me."

Not surprised, wish him the best there he will def do well there, especially in their up and down game style.

Oh and a quick piece from Josh Barr as well, some of you were definitely right about him being close to picking MD:

A 6-foot-7 forward, it had been thought that Grant was considering scholarship offers from Maryland and Rutgers. Grant’s club team coach, Keith Stevens of Team Takeover, and DeMatha Coach Mike Jones both thought that Grant was nearing a decision two weeks ago.

“I was definitely close [to picking Maryland] with the new coaching staff and all,” Grant said. “It felt like that was a good decision at the time. Then the decision-making process got crazy. It didn’t feel like it was going to be the right fit.”

So there you have it my friends, we were incredibly close to having Jerami Grant as a part of our phenomenal 2012 class.
