COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Expectations were already high even before Curtis Grant attended his first class at Ohio State.
Maybe too high.
Grant, baptized as a five-star recruit and one of the top 10 high school seniors in the country, was compared favorably to the Buckeyes' pantheon of great linebackers: Chris Spielman, Andy Katzenmoyer, Marcus Marek, Pepper Johnson, Randy Gradishar, A.J. Hawk, James Laurinaitis and others.
Then he put on a scarlet-and-gray uniform and promptly disappointed everybody.
He didn't play much as a freshman and last year lost his starting job to a converted fullback.
Now he's a mainstay of Ohio State's thin corps of `backers.
After shedding all the labels and hype, is he ready to finally become the player so many thought he was destined to be?
