South Florida Back Switches To TCU
TCU has capitalized on their outstanding season in 2009 by landing North Broward Prep [Fla.] running back Ethan Grant. Grant, who had earlier committed to Oregon, visited TCU last weekend and decided to make a change in his college plans. "I have committed to TCU following my visit last weekend," Grant told Scout.com. "I had a great visit there and I was very impressed with everything they had to offer. Coach [Gary] Patterson is one of the top head coaches in the country and I liked all the people on his staff. I had second thoughts about Oregon for a while now." Grant explained his reasoning for making a change at this time. "I feel I fit into TCU so much better than I do at Oregon," he said. "I called the coaches at Oregon and told them of my decision. I felt bad about it because they were great guys, but this is the right thing for me. They were upset, but they said they understood. I like the depth chart better at TCU and their style of offense suits me." "Going to Texas isn't quite as far as Oregon, so my mom can get out here a little more often," he admitted. "I plan on majoring in criminal justice at TCU and they have an excellent program in that field. I feel like a weight's been lifted off my shoulders because I knew I had possibly made a mistake committing to Oregon. TCU is the best place for me and I couldn't be happier."
