National Signing Day 2013: Jermaine Grace Chooses Miami Over Louisville

Louisville's 2013 national signing day did not end on a high note.

Many believed four-star prospect Jermaine Grace out of Miramar (Fla.) High School was going to be the next elite linebacker to take his talents to The Ville, but he surprised those folks by signing with Miami on Wednesday afternoon. His announcement was televised live on ESPNU.

Grace, whom Rivals rates as the 17th-best linebacker in the country and the 201st-best prospect overall in the class of 2013, also had offers from Florida, Florida State, Texas and Nebraska, among many others.

A speedy 6'2, 200-pound ballhawk, Grace is best known for his tremendous athleticism and his knack for being in the right place at the right time. He finished his junior season with 15 total tackles, four interceptions, and a sack.

Like most elite recruits, Grace was looking to land in a situation where he'd be able to see the field sooner rather than later. With Preston Brown, Keith Brown, James Burgess and Nick Dawson all being underclassmen, that situation wasn't a guarantee for Grace at Louisville.

Barring a late post-signing day addition, U of L's class of 2013 will remain a club with 16 members.
