Report: Illinois transfer of Jacob Grandison in the light of UCLA men’s basketball

With a veteran wing at the door, the Bruins are clearly in the market for a replacement.

UCLA men’s basketball is one of the potential landing sites for Illinois transfer guard Jacob Grandison, said the winger John Rothstein of CBS Sports on Friday. Grandison is also considering USC, BYU, DePaul, Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, Kentucky, Oregon and Duke. Grandison is from Auckland, but went to high school 3,000 miles from Phillips Exeter (NH).

Grandison is a graduate transfer heading into his sixth year of college as he began 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 a red shirt for his first year with Fighting Illini.
