Earlier, Notre Dame guard Demetrius Jackson announced that he will enter the NBA Draft, after leading the Fighting Irish to a second straight Elite Eight last week. Last year, the team's run was led by Jerian Grant, who went on to be the 19th overall pick by the New York Knicks. After Jackson posted his decision to Instagram, Grant took to the medium to share a story from when he was recruiting Jackson to come to Notre Dame. Grant's words turned out to be pretty prophetic.
Notre Dame fans have to love that note from Grant. He, Jackson, and forward Zach Auguste who is also mentioned, have played a huge part in changing Notre Dame's reputation from NCAA Tournament choker to top ACC program.
