Curtis Grant sticking with Buckeyes 

June, 1, 2011
ESPNU 150 LB Curtis Grant (Richmond, Va./Hermitage), a four-star recruit from the Buckeyes' No. 8 overall class, is not a very happy man at the moment. The future Buckeye still plans playing his college football in Columbus, but he's upset he won't be able to play for Jim Tressel. And he's very angry with how Tressel has been treated, especially after his Monday morning resignation.

"Coach [Luke] Fickell called to tell me on Monday morning about coach Tressel's resignation," Grant said. "I was shocked and couldn't believe what he was telling me. Then I turned on the TV and it was the truth. Tressel resigning just shocked me but I know the man and I know he had his reasons. Jim Tressel is a great guy and I am very glad that I got to know him. And now people are coming out everywhere and just tearing the man down."

Although Tressel was one of the big reasons why he signed with Ohio State this past February, Grant still insists that he's all Buckeye and he knows things are going to get a little worse before they get a little better.
