Cornerback talks about opportunity to shine as a starter this season and living up to expectations ...
We will see both Grant and Reeves on the field quite a bit. As Biddle pointed out, OSU expects to play in either Nickel or Dime packages most of the year. We need the depth. Thank goodness we have the depth.
Agree with that, we do have the depth and it makes things a lot less scary

Great kid. He grew up playin in our pewee program in Akron, Ellet. Hope the very best for him best.
He is correct his time is now and I hope he can seize it. Reeves and Apple will be breathing right down his neck though. Either of the three will be great and it is a great problem to have for the Staff. I was really impressed with Apple in the Spring Game as even though people got behind him he recovered well and made some excellent breakups. In the end I see Grant getting the first game node but the story will not be over then. If he excels he will keep his spot if he is good he may lose it sometime during the season.
Bored so I looked up the recruiting rankings of all concerned here ... check this out ...
Eli Apple, 45th overall nationally, 6th at corner
Cam Burrows, 60th nationally, 7th at corner
Gareon Conley, 148th nationally, 14th at corner
Armani Reeves, 81st nationally, 7th at corner
Doran Grant, 68th overall, 4th at corner
Bradley Roby, really not even ranked, 247 composite ranks: 610th overall nationally, 44th at corner
Pretty amazing, isn't it??
