Joe Tartamella on Grant:
"Danaejah has had to sit for the past year due to transfer requirements but we are all excited to get her on the court in December. She is a strong scoring guard who has shown growth on the defensive end during her time with us. She will be a great addition to our team when she becomes eligible in December."
