Impact: Marvin Grant is the definition of a ball hawk, a true free safety.
Now, he can come down and make tackles as well, but he hangs his hat on shutting down the deep portion of the field.
And he will do just that for us.
Don’t be surprised to see Grant on the field sooner rather than later. Coach Holt plays the best players, he does not play favorites to upper classmen or returning players. If Grant is the best free safety in the room, which he might be, he will play him.
Marvin will be a playmaker all four years for us. I do not expect him to redshirt this year. If he isn’t starting, I do expect him to be in the rotation. He may be our best deep ball defender before he even gets to Purdue.
