CORAL GABLES, FLA. – Rising sophomore Malcolm Grant (Brooklyn, N.Y./Winchendon [Mass.]) has signed a grant-in-aid to attend the University of Miami and play men’s basketball, announced head Hurricanes coach Frank Haith today. Grant will be eligible to play with the Hurricanes beginning with the 2009-10 season.

“Malcolm is going to be a great addition to our squad,” said Coach Haith. “He is an explosive player – great from long range with strong ball-handling skills. He is a tough player and will be a key component in our continued growth as a program.”

The 6-foot, 185-pound guard played in 29 games and made four starts in Big East play as a freshman with Villanova in 2007-08, averaging 5.6 points and 1.4 assists in 12.7 minutes per game. Grant converted a team-best 46.6 percent from three-point range (37-44), 84.1 percent from the line (37-44) and 39.0 percent from the field (46-118). He posted seven double-figure scoring efforts, including a season-high 23 points (6-7 3FG) versus Rutgers and a 22-point performance in an upset win over then-No. 13 Pittsburgh.

Grant provided a spark off the bench for the Wildcats and was considered a clutch three-point shooter. He was pivotal in Villanova’s 21-point comeback win over LSU on Dec. 6, scoring all 18 of his points in the final seven minutes – including 14 points in the last 2:55.
