Hermitage (Richmond, VA) linebacker Curtis Grant took advantage of his spring break last week by visiting four schools on his list, including Clemson, Florida, Virginia and Virginia Tech with tour wrapping up in Charlottesville on Saturday. The 6-3, 220-pound junior remains quiet in terms of naming favorites, but he did discuss last week’s visits.
