Grant lands his first 2010 commitment
It's only a verbal commitment at this point, but Charles Hankerson, a 6-foot-5, 210 lb, shooting guard from Miami, Florida (something tells me coach will do well in the Sunshine State) told BamaOnline.com that he is coming to Alabama. Other schools in the mix for Hankerson include Auburn, South Florida, Tulane, Virginia, Central Florida and Rice, all of whom have made offers to Hankerson. Hankerson averaged 20.7 points as a junior at Coral Reef High School in Miami. Scout and Rivals currently have him listed as a three-star rated player, though both sources say his stock is rising. He seems like a good kid. I look forward to seeing him play. If anybody has further information on Hankerson, please share it.
Hankerson told BamaOnline.com: ""The biggest factor for me was my relationship with Coach Grant. He has been recruiting me for a long time and we have a great bond between us. I understand what he wants from a coach perspective and he understands my strengths and weaknesses as a player. I'm relieved to have recruiting over with because now I can focus on ball. I'm already a full qualifier so I can work on my game and enjoy this last year of high school."
