Sophomore - LB - 6'1 210 - Miami Gardens, Fl (Miramar H.S.)
Played in 11 games as a true freshman last season, mostly on special teams, and collected 8 tackles.
Rated as a 4 star prospect before enrolling at UM.
Is a great athlete with plenty of speed, clocked at 4.5 in the 40.
Currently listed as a co-starter along with Raphael Kirby at one OLB spot. Last season was mostly a learning experience for Grace, but this season he is being counted on to produce.
Here's a closer look at what he can do:
Summary: I was surprised last season that Grace did not get more PT. He is an explosive talent, who plays with great natural instincts, and really packs a punch when he gets to the ball. But Miami's defense is complex, and not the easiest for a true freshman to master. Also Grace is a LB who is S sized. Nonetheless there has to be a role for a kid this talented. I would love to see Grace be utilized in blitz packages and some in coverage because of his speed. I'm not sure how well a 210 pound LB can hold up against the run, but I still think Grace ends up a key performer by season's end. Look for 30-40 tackles, a sack or two, and a few forced fumbles in his sophomore campaign.
