Fla. CB Down to Two

When it comes to cornerbacks <B>Dawayne Grace</B> has all the talent that college scouts look for in someone that plays his position. He is a 6-foot-1, 175 pound cornerback that not only has the size to match up with the bigger receivers that are now part of the college football landscape but also the speed as well. With a sub 4.5 forty time Grace can stay with just about any receiver he will face at the next level.

Recently Dawayne Grace played in the Florida/Cal All-Star game and was one of the best players on the field. What was it like for the Florida star to be out there with some of the best players in Florida, "It was great, I loved the competition we faced every day in practice and it was neat to see what some of the other great cornerbacks in the state where able to do," Grace said.

When it came to comparing his skills to the other top defensive backs on the Florida squad Grace was very complimentary of his teammates, "Trevor Ford, Kenny Ingram and JR Bryant are for real, they are all very good defensive backs but I feel that I am just as good as them," he said.

With signing day only a few weeks away Grace has cut his list of schools down to two. "Yeah it's down to Miami and UF; I will visit the Gators this weekend and will be hosted by my former teammate Dee Webb. I like UF a lot they are a very good school, they are close to home and will have a good football team the next few years. I also like UM a lot as well. It will be a tough decision for me to make. I grew up in Miami and moved to Jacksonville and the canes were my team growing up."

One other school that was in the running but fell off recently was University of Maryland. "I like Maryland a lot but the weather was too cold for me, I am a warm weather guy and that is why Florida and UM are my leaders at this time."

With a great visit this weekend to Florida there is a very good possibility that Grace ends the recruiting process and decides to commit to Gators. When TheInsiders spoke with Grace it seemed as if the Gators were a slight leader over the Miami Hurricanes.
