LB Grant enjoys local visit

Richmond (Va.) Hermitage linebacker Curtis Grant took an official visit to the only in-state school he is considering when he visiting the University of Virginia over the weekend. The five-star linebacker has been on campus many times, but did an official visit allow him to see anything different and where do the Cavs stand?

"The visit went good, just like I expected it to," said Grant, the nation's No. 2 player overall and the No. 1 inside linebacker in the country. "I knew a lot of players there as well as recruits. I was hosted by Morgan Moses and he likes it there a lot and had a great year. It was just a really comfortable feeling overall."

Grant has now taken official visits to Ohio State, Florida and Virginia and has North Carolina set for next weekend. How did Virginia stack up to the rest?

"It was good hanging out with everyone and I obviously like the coaches too," he said. "Coach London and I have become close and coach Reid and coach Brown are also good guys. They play a defense where I could make a lot of plays and it would be cool to play with guys I've known for such a long time. Virginia still has a chance, I wouldn't count them out. The chance to play at home is always an option."

Following a visit to UNC next weekend, Grant will then make his decision between the Buckeyes, Gators, Cavaliers and Tar Heels.

"It will be on Signing Day, I'm not sure what time but sometime in the afternoon," he said. "Right now I don't have a leader or anything, I'm going to take all my visits and weigh things out that way."
