|HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: 2012 Prospects (Part Two)|
January 19, 2012
The son of Harvey Grant, nephew of Horace, and brother of Clemson graduate Jerai and Notre Dame freshman guard Jerian, Dematha's Jerami Grant (#50 Scout, #60 Rivals, #43 ESPN) surely isn't lacking for bloodlines.
Grant passes the eye test for a NBA prospect and then some, standing 6-8 with an impressive 7-2 wingspan and a frame that should fill out nicely in time. He's a very good athlete on top of that, capable of elevating off the floor nicely on both ends of the court for blocks and dunks.
Not a very polished offensive player, Grant gets most of his production at this point by running the floor in transition, crashing the offensive glass and finishing whatever his guards are able to create for him around the basket. He is an average ball-handler at best, being mostly relegated to straight-line drives, and not showing great confidence in his shot-creating ability.
Grant doesn't possess any real post game from what we've seen, but could make this part of his game a real weapon down the road with the excellent size, frame and quickness he possesses, particularly if he's able to make the conversion to playing the small forward position full time.
As a jump-shooter, Grant is fairly streaky at the moment, capable of knocking down open looks on occasion with his feet set, but possessing a long and slow release that he needs plenty of time and space to get off effectively. He'll have to work especially hard on this part of his game, as it will likely play a significant role in his long-term development and professional evaluation.
Defensively is where Grant might possess the best potential as a NBA prospect, as his combination of size, length and athleticism could allow him to guard up to three positions (2/3/4) in time, and he already shows good timing as a rebounder and shot-blocker. His intensity level wavers a bit at times, but he has all the makings of a true lock-down defender, even if playing in Syracuse's zone exclusively for a few years may make that a little more difficult to decipher.
Still in a very early stage of his development, Grant has a ways to go both physically and in terms of his skill-level before we're able to get a real gauge on his long-term potential. He'll likely see most of his time at the power forward spot initially at Syracuse, but could end up being viewed as a Chris Singleton-esqe small forward prospect for the NBA depending on how his body fills out.
