Chicago Lockdown 17U point guard Demari Grant has had a monster spring.  The 2019 point guard has been in a zone shooting the ball from 15-18 feet drilling them over and over again.  Grant is more than just a shooter.  He has some quickness and handles that let him get in the paint.  Grant is worth monitoring by D2 programs and with a big senior season could emerge on the low-major radar.

He spoke about playing with Lockdown this spring.

“It is going pretty well.  New team and finding a role on this team.  I have shooters around me and Nate (Ferguson) inside.  With my combination of speed and getting in the lane and my shot is getting better.”

Last year he was one of the many talented guards for Bolingbrook.

“It went well.  We got stopped short in the super sectional.  At the end of the season I wasn’t shooting it well and Kaleb (Thornton) was out with an injury.”

What does he feel he can bring to a team at the next level?

“I would describe myself as a fast speed guard that can run any team.  I play defense hard.  I can run and compete the entire time.  I am not going to stop.”

A couple of schools have shown early interest.

“Drake has contacted me.  UNC-Wilmington and also Northern Illinois.”

Grant recently tweeted that he will be transferring to Oswego East for his senior year.
