Doran Grant had the better part of 105,019 fans applauding his game Saturday, but none more than a 5-foot-6, 130-pound high school senior sitting behind Ohio State’s bench.

Fransohn Bickley (Akron, Ohio/St. Vincent-St. Mary) was on hand in the unofficial/official visitor section to watch his former teammate do work for the Buckeyes in a 29-15 win over the University of Alabama-Birmingham and walked away smiling.

“I was impressed. I was there to watch Doran,” Bickley said. “I thought he did great. He needs to be a starter, but that’s my opinion. It was a slow start, but I was impressed as the game went on.”
