LB Jarret Grace

WR, ��ɉ�ɉ��, 235 pounds, 6’3″

Colerain High School

Cincinnati, Ohio

Athletic and tough, Jarrett Grace will join the Irish roster as a linebacker, and has the potential to play both inside and outside.

He recorded 95 tackles during his junior year and 69 tackles in his senior season, and was an all-Ohio first team selection.

Grace has the size to contribute early, but behind the likes of Manti Te’o and Carlo Calabrese, his best opportunity for early playing time will likely be on special teams.

He pursues ball carriers well, keeps moving throughout the play, and his technique will be an asset for him.

He has the size to be a good run stopper, but also the speed and quickness to cover tight ends and running backs.
