'Everyone likes to play for a winner'

FORT WAYNE - Versatility is a trait the Michigan State basketball team values and on day two of the Bill Hensley Memorial Run-n-Slam one of the Class of 2011's top wing forwards showed off his skill set.

Anton Grady, a 6-8, 200 pound forward from Cleveland (Ohio) Central Catholic High School, first caught Michigan State's eye last summer as a junior playing with the 17's in the Cleveland grassroots organization Friends For Life. This summer, Grady is a standout for All-Ohio Red.

The versatile Grady, who is comfortable at both the three and four spots, is a slasher on offense with a nose for the basket who can also spot up and drain jumpers from the wing.

Grady and his All Ohio teammates dropped a disappointing 67-66 decision to Playground Elite as Grady spent most of the second half in foul trouble.

SpartanMag.com caught up with Grady after the game and discussed his recruitment and how the process is unfolding.
