Trask on Stoneman: "Grant was identified by our staff in the summer camp program. His size, feet and tenacity will allow him to compete immediately for playing time. Grant played for Louis Mateus at the Chicago Magic Academy and we feel that he has all the tools to become a dominant defender here in Madison."
Tiemeyer on Stoneman: "Grant is another recruit that truly wanted to be a Wisconsin Badger, as he has family already attending UW. He has blossomed over the past year into a solid center back after playing most often in attacking roles. Grant is not only accepting his new position on the field, but has pushed himself into a more competitive environment with his move to the Chicago Magic. Another excellent student, Grant is primed for success both on and off the field at UW."
Why Wisconsin? "I chose Wisconsin to seize the opportunity to play in the Big Ten and to be part of one of the best athletic programs in the country with the highest caliber of coaching talent. The campus, facilities, academic choices, and alumni strength were some of the many reasons that attracted me to selection UW."
