Gremaud holds down the middle for Ventura

A big-time talent at the middle linebacker spot in the JUCO ranks this year is Ventura's P.J. Gremaud (6-1, 242). As a redshirt freshman in 2011, the instinctive linebacker led the team in tackles and he hopes that an even better sophomore campaign results in some D-1 opportunities...

Gremaud prepped at St. Bonaventure (Ventura, Ca.) High School and signed with Humbolt State where he redshirted in 2010.

"I was up there, but I had to come back for some personal stuff, so I just enrolled here at Ventura," Gremaud told recently. "It's close to my home and I like the staff here and the system they run. It was just a good fit and what I needed for the time."

As a redshirt freshman in 2011, Gremaud led the Pirates with 68 tackles while also posting 7.5 tackles-for-loss, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions.

With those stats and his outstanding size, instincts and athleticism, Gremaud has turned into an attractive prospect to four-year schools although none have stepped forward with an offer yet.

"A few schools have been talking to my coaches, but none of them have offered me yet," Gremaud said. "I've heard that TCU, California and Nevada have been asking about me, but that's really it so far."

Gremaud is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two following the 2012 football season.
