Jerian Grant back to South Bend
Notre Dame guard Jerian Grant will not follow his brother to the NBA draft and intends to return to South Bend.
The 6-foot-4 Grant averaged 19 points in 12 games last season before withdrawing from school for an "academic matter" in late-December.
"Jerian is not in the NBA draft," Irish coach Mike Brey told ESPN.com. "He's returning to Notre Dame in June for summer school and we look forward to having him next season."
Jerian Grant redshirted as a freshman and has one season of eligibility remaining. The Irish had a disappointing season a year ago, finishing 15-17 overall and 6-12 in ACC play. They will return Grant and fellow senior Pat Connaughton, in addition to junior forward Zach Auguste and sophomore guard Demetrius Jackson.
