According to Steve Gorton of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Ft Lauderdale, 4-Star Outside Linebacker Jermaine Grace will announce his college decision on Tuesday. What makes this interesting is that he will make his final college visit this Friday the 18th. That visit will be to the University of Louisville. Grace has taken official visits to Miami and Tennessee with the Hurricanes said to be the favorite.
Jermaine is a 6′-2″ 196lb prospect out of Mirimar High School in Mirimar Florida. During his junior season he finished with 115 tackles, five sacks and four interceptions. According to Mike Bakas of Scout.com, “Grace brings a tremendous amount of speed and athleticism to the table as a prospect.

He is a bit on the small side for a major college LB prospect though.”
Louisville doesn’t have a whole lot of depth at the Linebacker posi...

Pitino mentioned that teams never shoot a very good percentage against Syracuse. “Not too many teams are as good at stealing the ball in a zone as well as they...
Sophomore guard Kevin Ware was expected to be one of the most improved players for Rick Pitino’s team this season. Ware played very briefly as a true freshman in 2011-12 after arriving on campus in mid-season during the second semester.
It’s tough for someone to arrive midseason and quickly get acclimated to Rick Pitino’s system. It’s simply not something you can pick-up...
