THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150

Last weekend, the No. 66 player in the class of 2014 took a second visit down to visit campus and on Friday announced via his twitter account that he would be a Tiger.

One of the better recruiting stories of the class of 2014, Grantham is a native of West Virginia and his home state's player of the year as a senior in 2013.
Lightly recruited until late in his senior season at Martinsburg (W.V.) High, Grantham decided to attend a year of prep school at Hargrave (Va.) Academy. In advance of that he spent the summer playing with a traditional summer power, the D.C. Assault, and his stock took off.
At 6-foot-8, Grantham is a highly versatile forward. He can play inside or out and fits the role of the new age hybrid combo forward.
"He's the total package," Hargrave coach A.W. Hamilton told Rivals.com. "Great player, person, teammate and student athlete. This is a home run get for Clemson."
When Clemson wants to play smaller and quicker, Grantham has enough size and toughness to play as a four who can step out and shoot jumpers or take big men off the dribble. As a small forward, he will have size advantages most of the time and he is a very good transition finisher and rebounder.
Thanks to his prep school year, Grantham should arrive at Clemson a little more seasoned and he should be able to add some needed bulk to his frame.
Grantham is Clemson's second recruit for the class of 2014 and joins three-star shooting guard Gabe DeVoe.
