to play football, not to play trumpet

Gant had always been an Ohio State lean. Schools knew (and he made it known) that he was going to either OSU or Michigan. Schools backed off ... but stated that if he changed his mind, there was a scholarship waiting. Other schools had offered including LSU and Nebraska (that I can confirm). Once Urban became Coach, he called Toledo wanting both Wormley and Gant.

Gant never stopped developing ... Gant's HS Coach did not play him much during his Jr & Sr years. You may verify this by watching his film or by asking opposing Coaches ... as I have done both. I have assisted a friend in Ohio who runs a football publication for many years. I have scouted Ohio kids for many years. I've seen Gant's "body of work" for 4 years. He is a winner and a big play specialist ... both football and basketball. Getting back to his HS Coach ... he believed that Gant had "developed & arrived" and therefore limited his time on the playing field. Both offensively and defensively. He wanted other kids to "develop and arrive" also. Gant's perceived "lack of development" was due to lack of playing time and not due to lack of progressing or developing. When it is all said and done ... Gant will be a tremondous player for the Wolverines.

What is lost is that Gant was in the mix for playing time at SS this fall. He had an injury last October that required surgery (in which he is still healing from). He also had a different injury that limited him to 2 plays in the Spring Game. The Coaches want to get him on the field as soon as possible ... and with the lack of depth at SAM, this is a good opportunity. Gant's natural weight is 220-225 ... which is heavier that what the Coaches want at Safety. I ask the right questions to the right people to get the right answers!
