Grant to Be a Rebel

The Mississippi Delta continues to produce college prospects capable of playing at the BCS level. For the second straight year, Ole Miss has rolled into Cleveland High School and nabbed a verbal commitment from a rising star.

Terrell Grant profile

"I committed to Ole Miss," said the talented wide reciever. "I called the coaches last night and I told them. I called Coach Dickerson and he was real excited. He was estatic. He said he had a gut feeling for a while that I was coming."

Coach Houston Nutt has been the mastermind behind some of the nation's top rushing offenses the past few years. Nutt's ability to mix it up is one of the things that atrracted him to Ole Miss.

"Coach Dickerson said they are going to use me and use me effectively," said Terrell. "He told me to get ready for next season because they want me go come in ready to play."

Grant attended the Ole Miss season opener Saturday night and was impressed with the Red and Blue gameday atmosphere.

"I went to the game and I was impressed with everything about it," said Terrell. "The fans were really into it and I liked watching the coaching staff. They were really into the game. They are throwing the ball more and I was glad to see that. It just made me more sure of what I wanted to do.

"During the game this lady sitting near me dropped her pom pom and this Memphis fan stomped on it. When the man that was with her got back from the concession stand, he and the man who stomped on the pom pom had words. It got a little heated.

"It's good to know their fans care so much about Ole Miss. They have a lot of pride and I want to go up there and be part of it. I am ready to get up there and get things rolling."

Terrell chose Ole Miss over an offer from Mississippi State.

Grant will look to join former high school teammate and friend Derrick Herman on the Rebels' roster next fall. Recommended Stories
