Ye olde notebook:
The former Martinsburg High Bulldog said on his Twitter account that today would be the day. Reports say he's choosing between his final choices of Michigan and Clemson.
It's the next chapter in what's already been a winding road for the 6-foot-7, 200-pound small forward.
After leading the 26-2 Bulldogs to the last Class AAA championship, Grantham won the Evans Award, symbolic of the state's player of the year. WVU's Bob Huggins went after the player - and seemingly had Grantham locked up.
Grantham had expressed a love for the Mountaineers and a nice relationship with Huggins' assistant Ron Everhart. The forward visited WVU on April 2.
Then the letter-of-intent signing day on April 16 came and went. Frustrated, Huggins waited. Then, on May 6, I asked the Mountaineer coach if he was still recruiting the Bulldog.
"No," was his simple, terse answer.
Grantham apparently wished to wait for offers other than those placed on the table by WVU, Marshall and Clemson. We learned Grantham would take his talents to Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, where ex-MU player A.W. Hamilton coaches.
And more offers did roll in. Cincinnati, Connecticut, Maryland, Miami, Penn State, Texas and Xavier, among others, offered. Then, last month, one from ex-WVU and current Michigan coach John Beilein rolled in as well.
The early basketball signing period, by the way, begins Nov. 13.
In addition to WVU, Miami and Xavier have offered and Michigan and Michigan State are in on him as well. Ahmad is a 6-7, 222-pound forward in the Da'Sean Butler mold.
It's not encouraging to me because Luck is in the Mountain State. It's encouraging because he's very knowledgeable about football. He's been a college quarterback. He's been a professional quarterback. He's run professional franchises and even a league.
