Film of Doran Grant was lacking, but independent recruiting site ThaRinger praised his Nike Ohio Combine performance and claimed he was the no. 2 player out of Ohio.
In the same recruiting year as Braxton Miller, Trey Depriest and Cardale Jones, that's saying something.
Grant is extremely athletic, setting Nike combine records for the vertical leap and the shuttle drill, and posting a 4.57 40 despite "not preparing because of basketball."
His athleticism allows for a fluid transition between cornerback, wide receiver and return specialist, though he's projected as a better CB prospect.
The offers have been pouring in since, including from USC and Notre Dame.
Yet Grant has kept his interest local: Ohio State and Michigan State lead, and his father is an MSU alumnus. He's also visited Michigan unofficially and holds a Wolverines offer, though OSU and MSU are his top two schools.
An offer from Miami would make things interesting—they were his childhood favorite—but I would guess that since Miami grabbed Louis-Jean, the Spartans and Buckeyes will be battling this one out.
Ohio State is pretty selective with its defensive backs, so I would be very surprised if they lost. But the Spartans are putting together a strong 2011 effort and Grant may want to get in on the action.
I can't do much evaluating without film, but his offer sheet and the buzz suggests he'll be a high four-star player who could push for a fifth star if he continues to visit combines and generate buzz.
