Spring Hill College Men's Basketball Head Coach Robert Thompson today announced that Nick Grant of St. Francis High School in Alpharetta, Ga., has signed to play for the Badgers.
Grant, a 6'4" wing player, averaged 10 points, three rebounds and two assists per game as a senior. He also proved himself to be a multi-skilled player with tremendous range and work ethic.
During the 2009-10 season, Grant was selected as an Honorable Mention Player on the Georgia 7-A All-Region team.
Last season, Grant shot the ball from behind the 3-point arc at a 38% clip while helping lead the Knights to a Sweet 16 appearance in the state playoffs. The Sweet 16 berth was the furthest the Knights have advanced since 2005, but continued a streak of six State Tournament berths over the last eight years.
"Nick is an excellent shooter from the outside and will have an opportunity to make an early contribution to our program," said Thompson. "We are excited he has chosen to spend his college career with the Badger family."
