"When this particular young man became available, [signing him] became a priority," Larry Shyatt said. "We were recruiting two other individuals, but this sort of took center stage for our program, for our class balance but most of all because of what he can do for us and for what we can do for his family.
Shyatt was familiar with Granberry because he played for Matt Driscoll, a former assistant under Shyatt at UW during the 1997 98 season.

"First of all, he's mature," Shyatt said of Granberry. "The last two years we've had the luxury of playing some older, more mature players, but there's a little bit of an absence in that regard with next year's team.

The 6 foot 5, 225 pound Granberry started 101 games and averaged 10.6 points per game on 36 percent shooting for the Ospreys.
"This is a match made in heaven."
Shyatt praised Granberry's "toughness and competitiveness" and suggested he could give the Cowboys a different look next season.

At UW, Granberry will be reunited with longtime friend and high school teammate Charles Hankerson Jr., who redshirted this year after transferring from Alabama. The two played rec league basketball together as youngsters and later, as seniors, led Miami's Coral Reef High School to Florida's Class 6A state title.

UW returns starting guards Josh Adams and Riley Grabau, along with forward Larry Nance Jr. but will have just one returning senior in backup guard Nathan Sobey. Shyatt believes Granberry Nike Cortez Classic Blue can help fill that void.
"If he can add a dimension to our program, and maybe give us another perimeter player maybe a team that's capable at times of playing small," Shyatt said. "That's a real potential lineup for us as we put together this program."
