          Kis is academics first. Straight A's, all honors courses. If he gets so much as a B, his mom won't let him play sports. And he says he's fine with that, because he's only once came close to getting a B. Plans on majoring in pre-med. He wants to take all 5 visits before deciding. He did say that he loves ND...

            Another prospect with a pre-existing relationship with Kelly, Hinton, and Diacco.

            Rivals and ESPN have him as an ILB while Scout lists as a 4 Star, #10 ranked OLB.

                Jarret Grace would be a great recruit for ND. In addition to being a super student, he has all the physical assets to excel on the football field. Sure hope he decides to come with us. Go Irish.

                    Article per ESPN's On the Trail:

                    Jarrett Grace "blown away" by Notre Dame junior day

                    2011 linebacker Jarrett Grace (Cincinnati/Colerain) said this weekend's junior day at Notre Dame, "blew me away," ESPN affiliate Web site IrishSportsDaily.com reports. "It went really, really well. I was definitely impressed and loved everything I saw."

                    "Notre Dame, they're the complete package with everything. They have the academics and the football tradition there, and the things coach (Brian) Kelly is doing, I think he's going to get things back to where they used to be, and they also have the religious aspect that ties everything together. It has it all."

                    Grace is currently holding 14 scholarship offers including Notre Dame, Tennessee, Boston College, West Virginia, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Indiana.

                    "Cincinnati stands out because it's local, and I have the connections there, and also Indiana, it's a family feel there and I like their head coach Bill Lynch and the staff a lot," he continued.

                    Grace registered 95 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and two interceptions as a junior.

                        Scout moved him up one slot to #10 OLB.

                        He's added offers from Duke, Arizona, and Tennessee and plans on making a visit to Knoxville soon.

                          One of Lemming's Two Most Likely To Commit at the B&G Game.


                          Two who the Irish staff wants, and may get, according to Lemming, are Fort Wayne (Dwenger) defensive end Tony Springmann and Cincinnati (Colerain) inside linebacker Jarrett Grace.

                          I think those are the two guys that could commit to Notre Dame while they're there, Lemming said.

                                  Notre Dame Football - Grace Finds Complete Package At ND

                                  With his parents, brother, three sisters, brother-in-law and niece with him, he gave his verbal commitment to head coach Brian Kelly and the Irish program.

                                  “It’s basically a dream school,” Grace told Irish Sports Daily on Friday. “I was so excited about this offer, more than any other offer. Right away it hit me that this is where I need to go. I thought about it and prayed about it and took a few visits, and it’s the right place for me.

                                  Grace chose the Irish over scholarship offers from the likes of Tennessee, West Virginia, Boston College, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Cincinnati and Indiana. Grace is also a 4.0 student

                                              that really doesnt mean anything because ND has just recently offed james wilder jr. who is considered the "big name" recruit of th year

                                                He's also a 4 star kid per scout and the #10 OLB in their eyes. Now, scout is wrong all the time and Ohio State is wrong on kids too. You could look at both and find negatives and/or positives. Just gotta trust the staff I guess. Kid looks good on film and he's got a great body for this defense...

                                                  Anyone have a link to some video on this kid? Only thing Google has given me is a postgame interview with an annoying girl yelling the whole time.

                                                  Read some OSU forums and they're not sure why he hasn't received an offer. They're targeting DePriest and Vaughters currently. They have a lot of depth at LB, so they may not have a need. Regardless, it's still early in the process and not all the targets have received offers.

                                                  Should we be basing the caliber of our recruits based on who OSU has targeted? To me that doesn't seem like a smart evaluation tool. I wouldn't let it bother you too much. He's 6'4" - 240 lbs with a 4.7 40 time. He can line up as OLB or a rush DE. He's got a 4.0. Bag 'em and tag 'em - he's going to be good.

                                                    The good players in Ohio get OSU offers......it's not like this kid is from Oregon and didn't get an OSU offer, he is from Ohio......not trying to belittle the kid, he fits in from an academic perspective and looks like he has some game so it is a good pickup and I am sure he will do well. I just would love to see some of the top talent at the position coming to ND....I want to win championships, not just be a good team.

                                                      I don't think the OSU has been recruiting Cincinnati the way perhaps they should. Besides, I trust that Kelly knows what he is doing. Seems like a great prospect anyways.

                                                                          What's say ... O$U missed the boat on this kid? A 4-star prospect per scout and the #10 rated OLB overall, yet your comment comes across as ND really pissed away a scholarship. Yeah, I too can't believe the Irish took this LB since he's not a 5-star ! What are they thinking?

                                                                                    FINALLY found some game footage on him on Rivals. He looks like an excellent ILB. Saw a few picks when dropping in coverage, and he was very good against the run. He lights up a few receivers coming across the middle too.

                                                                                    He seems to be loving ND, and he's been reaching out to other recruits quite a bit. Sounds like this guy is buying into Kelly's program.

                                                                                            I absolutely get what you're saying, but it is validation for those of us (including you) who had to argue against those clowns who said BK would only offer 2 and 3 star guys...guys from Ohio that had MAC offer lists, etc. BK I believe was the 1st big-school coach (or one of the first) to jump on this kid, but because he had offers from Indiana and Duke and Kentucky, many BK haters assumed that he was a marginal player at best and that ND was doomed to a lifetime of marginal players. Nevermind that several experts who reviewed his film said he had the chance to be great and that he was a perfect fit for ND.

                                                                                            Here's some quotes from an Irish fan on this thread:

                                                                                            Ohio State never offered this kid.........it says a lot. The good players in Ohio get OSU offers......it's not like this kid is from Oregon and didn't get an OSU offer, he is from Ohio. I just would love to see some of the top talent at the position coming to ND....I want to win championships, not just be a good team.

                                                                                            Maybe he is a step below the top LB's in the country.......crazy idea....I know.....I guess I have higher expectations than most, I want the best.....
                                                                                            Fast forward to now and 2 of the best defenses in college football want him to join their team. I'd say BK is validated, and those negative-nancy clowns that pervade ND message boards need to stand up and realize that BK will recruited the BEST players that fit his defense and persona, star system be damned...
                                                                                            Last edited by NDinL.A.; 07-19-2010, 04:01 PM.

He is going to be a great linebacker and I wanted to point out his new offers for those that thought Kelly couldn't get top talent. Grace loves ND and he will be a big time player in the future. I don't need the validation of a Bama offer to make me like this kid. His highlight film speaks for itself.
