Pasco ATH Janarion Grant commits to Rutgers

Pasco athlete Janarion Grant, whose career has been filled with highlight-reel touchdowns, has verbally committed to Rutgers, Pirates coach Tom McHugh confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
Grant, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound, back-to-back long jump state champion, had an official visit to Rutgers campus this past weekend and decided to commit a week before National Signing Day, which is Feb. 6.
Grant also had offers from USF, West Virginia, East Carolina and Houston, among others, and was considered a three-star recruit by most recruiting scouts.
In the past two seasons, Grant’s play helped lead the Pirates to a combined 25-2 record and make the 5A state final four in 2011 and a region finalist this past season.
Grant started the 2012 season sidelined with a broken hand suffered in practice, which forced him to miss the first six games. However, he would then account for 20 touchdowns in seven games, including lining up at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, punt/kick returner and defensive back. Grant was also named to the Tribune’s All-Pasco First Team Offense.
Grant also has 77 career touchdowns, which is a Pasco County record.
