What follows is an interesting story regarding a 2017 recruit named Malcolm Nicholas who is quite closely connected to Anthony Grant.
He is a big guard at 6-5 that has a lot of programs interested but not a lot of offers and very little info:

I did a little digging on this guy and while I still really have no idea whether or not he can actually play, his background is pretty interesting stuff. Let's start around 1987, Grant's first year post UD, as a coach at Miami High School, where he had starred years earlier. In 1987 Malcolm Nicholas III was a couple of years away from even being born, but his father Malcolm Nicholas was starring at Miami High School. Following graduation in 1988, Malcolm Nicholas would go on to Florida State where he played in all of 6 games:
I'm not sure if he transferred or what but after college evidently Nicholas followed in Anthony Grant and Frank Martin's footsteps by returning to Miami High to be an assistant coach. Here's a very long article from the Miami New Times published in 1998 that investigates whether or not Miami High was recruiting players under Frank Martin (Grant had since left for the college ranks): http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/dream-team-6378922
It's fairly interesting as it involves some big names - Udonis Haslem, Steve Blake, Kevin Garnett, and interestingly enough midway through the story mentions assistant coach Malcolm Nicholas and his mom, Roma Nicholas, who somehow was listed as mom to a Miami High player.
Anyway, fast forward to today and Malcolm Nicholas is now an assistant principal at Miami High School. His son, Malcolm Nicholas III (the one Dayton is apparently "recruiting") starred as a basketball player at Miami High just like he did, and just like Anthony Grant did years earlier though it appears the youngest Nicholas transferred to finish out his HS days at Mater Academy.
Nicholas, the recruit, may or may not have any committable offers (no idea), but he has taken at least one unofficial visit that I know of... and guess where? He visited South Carolina because of course, Frank Martin. https://twitter.com/prephoopsfl/stat...78763060039680
So that's the story of Malcolm Nicholas III, and should he ever find his way to UD, Archdeacon will no doubt tell it much better than I!
