Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers football player who has been an inspirational figure since becoming paralyzed nearly two years ago, visited the Princeton men's basketball team Wednesday.

LeGrand entered Jadwin Gymnasium at the end of Princeton's first practice as it prepares for its trip to Spain next week. On Carril Court, LeGrand spoke to players, staff and athletic administrators about the moment that changed his life on Oct. 16, 2010 and his recovery ever since.

LeGrand has written a book about his experience, called Believe, that will be released on Sept. 25. An ESPN camera crew accompanied LeGrand on the visit, and footage from the documentary will air on ESPN's Outside The Lines beginning on Oct. 7.

After his visit, LeGrand posted a message on Twitter, accompanied by a photo of him with the team. Photos from his visit are below as well.
