Horace Grant, not Harvey... as least I think it is. They're twins, you see. Still no goggles.

Fine… it’s actually Harvey Grant who is Jerami Grant’s father, not Horace. Who said headline writing was easy?

Anyway, if you’ve been hankering for a glimpse at one of next season’s two prized Orange basketball recruits, ESPN will help to sate your appetite this coming Monday. I know, I know. We hate ESPN. But hear me out.

Jerami Grant, a 2012-13 Syracuse Orange freshman-to-be and top 100 ranked forward from Hyattesville, Maryland, will lead his DeMatha Catholic team into Springfield, Mass. for an early afternoon tilt on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Grant and company will face off against Bishop Gorman out of Las Vegas, which features consensus Class of 2012 #1 ranked forward Shabazz Muhammad. It may be the toughest head-to-head match-up Grant faces all season, and will be a prime opportunity for Orange fans to get a long look at a potential replacement for outgoing senior Kris Joseph in the fall of 2012.

The game is part of the Spalding Hoophall Classic, and is scheduled to air live on ESPNU at 1:00. If you aren’t lucky enough to be off from work or school, now’s the time to set your DVR. We’ll have a recap of the game and analysis of the future Orange man right here on TNIAAM.

Here is some Grant and Muhammad YouTubery to whet your appetite for their showdown this coming Monday.
