6-4, 180-pound Jerian Grant claims five scholarship offers, including Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Providence, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

They include the five schools that have offered as well as Florida State, Miami, Oklahoma State and Villanova. Asked if he has thought about following in his father’s footsteps and suiting up for the Oklahoma Sooners, Grant replied, “I’ve thought about it, but it’s not really a big thing.”
As a junior this past season, Grant helped DeMatha capture a WCAC title with a win over Gonzaga and a City Title with a win over Ballou. He has impressed college coaches with his leadership ability and versatility on the court.
“[College coaches] say they like the way I lead the team. They like the way I play the game. I play the game the way it’s supposed to be played,” Grant said. “They like how I share the ball and my shooting ability.”
