Cleveland State coach Gary Waters has already referred to Grady, a much larger cousin of Earl Boykins, as "our future." With the Vikings' three top possession-users gone from last season, it would seem that the future is now. Grady was a monster in short spurts as a freshman, leading CSU in offensive and defensive rebounding percentage, block percentage, and posting a usage/efficiency ratio that suggests he can assume a go-to-guy role if called upon. Waters told Grady during his recruitment that he'd be used as a wing forward, but he's been so good in a pure frontcourt role that it doesn't seem wise to push him to the perimeter. (And selfishly, I don't want anything to interfere with his breakout.)
