Player Overview

The rare Alabama-to-Auburn transfer, Grant began his collegiate career with the Crimson Tide and redshirted in 2010, but didn't like the fit in Tuscaloosa and looked to transfer.

Alabama didn't allow him out of his scholarship so he walked on at Auburn, sitting out the 2011 season due to transfer rules. Grant shared the back-up duties behind Tre Mason in 2013, averaging 9.8 yards per carry with six touchdowns as a junior. Mason left for the NFL, but Grant's role on offense decreased as a senior, struggling to find consistent snaps (single digit offensive touches the final 10 games of 2014) behind Cameron Artis-Payne.

Strengths Weaknesses

Undersized with limited power to his run style, Grant is an east-west runner with spotty vision and indecisive tendencies, relying on the home run every time he touches the ball. But his saving grace is his speed and potential impact as a return man, averaging 24.5 yards per kick return (one score) in college - inconsistent offensive player, but his speed is special.
