"Man it was very tough," Grace said. "I am from Miami and I have a lot of family there. Plus, they were always my favorite team. But Florida is close to home now that we are in Jacksonville. Dee (Webb) is there and I feel really comfortable around all the players and coaches at UF. And lots of those guys are from this area. But the biggest thing was the playing time. Florida loses their entire secondary and I now I can go earn some playing time for the Gators."
CB talks about decision
