Recruiting: 4-Star OLB Jermaine Grace Picks Miami Hurricanes


The Miami Hurricanes landed a big commit on National Signing Day when Miramar OLB Jermaine Grace announced that he will be playing football at UM.

The 4-star linebacker picked Miami over Louisville and Tennessee during a live showing on ESPNU.

Grace cited one of the reasons for choosing the Canes’ was the opportunity to play with his former Miramar teammates and current Miami Hurricanes, Tracy Howard and Malcolm Lewis.

Louisville made a late push for Grace, but their attempts were too little too late.

The 6’1, 195-pounder is rated the No. 19 OLB in the nation and No. 287 player overall, per 247Sports.  Miami could use some depth at OLB and Grace will help to fill that need.  Grace is known for his speed and athleticism and has repeatedly been praised for his quick reaction on the field.

During his senior season at Miramar, Grace totaled 80 tackles, 1.0 sack and 3.0 interceptions.
