Report: Illinois mover Jacob Grandison considers UCSD men’s basketball

With a veteran winger out the door, it appears Bruins are in the market for a replacement.

The winger said UCSD men’s basketball is one of the potential landing points for Illinois transfer guard Jacob Grandison Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports on Friday. Grandison also teaches USC, BYU, DePaul, Arizona, Iowa State, Michigan, Kentucky, Oregon, and Duke. Grandison is originally from Auckland, but went to high school 3,000 miles away in Phillips Exeter (NH).

Grandison is a transfer graduate going into its sixth year at college level, beginning his career at Holy Cross. After two years averaging 11.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game in Worcester, Massachusetts, Grandison moved to Champaign, Illinois, and re-enrolled in kindergarten in his freshman year with Fighting Illini.
