Starter Noise

I have a Tigershark 460, 1993 model that was sitting for a few years. We hooked up the battery and tried the starter and it was locked up at first then soon started making a grinding noise and the engine wouldn't turn over. I'm pulling out the starter to see if it is bad but hoping maybe someone would be able to give me some insight on what's going on from experience. I cant tell if something is seized up in the engine.

thanks

Pull the plugs and try and turn the engine over by hand using the driveshaft.

Got it, now it turns over with the starter. Not getting fuel in the lines. Checked them and they are all tight.

Put some oil down in the cyl's and spin it some, then do a compression check. Somethings not right somewhere if it was acting like that. Any rust on the plugs ?
