The 6-foot-1, 196-pound Grace is rated 201st in the Rivals250. He is the 17th-ranked outside linebacker.
According to CaneSport.com, Grace said he chose Miami because he can "have my friends come see me play and the education (is great) and to play with Malcolm (Lewis), Tracy Howard and those guys I grew up with. ... being able to stay home, come home for Sunday dinners and be able to see my friends whenever I wanted, that was a great decision for me."

1:25 p.m.: Liner completes flip to Alabama
The four-star Liner is 61st in the Rivals100 and the seventh-rated player at his position. He is also the third-ranked player from the state of Alabama, and his decision gives the Crimson Tide a sweep of the top five players in the state.

Coley is the 13th-ranked wide receiver nationally.
12:35 p.m.: Dual-threat quarterback picks UCLA
"Obviously, they have a great coaching staff in Jim Mora and the guys they hired under him," said Woulard, who chose the Bruins over Clemson and Kentucky. "Also, for what I want to accomplish after college, it's a great opportunity for networking."
Woulard said he wants to major in mass communications.
At 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds from Winter Park (Fla.) High, Woulard is the No. 5 dual-threat QB in the nation. He ranks 141st in the Rivals250.

"I just got to my school, and I am getting ready to go inside and sign," he said. "I am going to sign with Oregon and will send them the fax right after I sign it."
11:23 a.m.: Twins split up
Mackensie was a cornerback at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and rated as a four-star player.
Three-star Mackenro played linebacker at Immokalee but projects to play safety at Auburn.
Mackenro spoke last week, saying that teams who thought they could jump in on him late to secure his brother were not going to be successful.
"I'm going to just stay true to me and to the teams that have been on me since the start, even when I was going through some troubles and some things," he said.
"Wherever I go I'm going to make them love me. I'm going to make so many plays, and I'll be deadly out there."
11:16 a.m.: Four-star safety picks South Carolina
The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School prospect was recruited to the school by Grady Brown.
He is expected to make an immediate impact.

10:22 a.m.: Tunsil headed to Ole Miss
The five-star offensive tackle from Lake City (Fla.) Columbia made his announcement on national television, saying he was excited to head to the SEC program.
"I was really shocked," Kublanow said. "Me and him have a pretty good relationship, and I've pretty much talked with him a ton this past couple of months, and he seemed locked into coming here (to UGA)."
For more on the continually improving Ole Miss class, visit RebelGrove.com.
10:14 a.m.: Bell goes for Ohio State
Tennessee was given the last visit, but ultimately it came down to relationships with the staff and Bell's belief in Urban Meyer.
"Coach Meyer is my boy, man," Bell said. "He is really a player's coach kind of guy. He's real close to his players, just seeing how their life is and helping them with any problems. He is always behind them and showing that he cares for them. He did the same thing at Florida; he always has a friendship with his players like later on down the road."
After an undefeated season in Columbus, Meyer may have locked up the No. 2 spot in the Rivals.com team rankings.

9:57 a.m.: Adams to Auburn
Adams is from Vienna (Ga.) Dooly Country. He was an Auburn lean through much of the process, but with the coaching turnover at the program it was speculated that he could go elsewhere.
It is the second major commitment in the morning for Auburn. The program signed Elijah Daniel of Avon (Ind.) High.
Follow the rest of the class on AuburnSports.com.
9:48 a.m.: Five-star Thomas to Florida State
Florida State signed its first five-star of the Class of 2013 when Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington linebacker Matthew Thomas announced on national television his intention to play for the Seminoles.
Thomas said he wanted to stay in the state so that his family could see him play.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder was the top-ranked player at his position in the nation.
He will likely be joined by Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy cornerback Jalen Ramsey as the two five-stars for the class.
WarChant.com has more on Thomas and the rest of the Seminoles class.
9:41 a.m.: Dobbs to Vols
Longtime Arizona State quarterback commitment Joshua Dobbs was a late target for Butch Jones and his staff at Tennessee, but the January push worked. Dobbs sent his Letter of Intent to Knoxville on Wednesday morning.
Dobbs is listed at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, and he is the No. 20-ranked pro-style quarterback in the nation. He had been committed to Arizona State since the middle of June.
Tennessee received the last visit for Dobbs and caused him to stay closer to his Alpharetta (Ga.) High.

9:32 a.m.: Signing Surprise for Hawgs
Rivals250 offensive lineman Denver Kirkland was the center of a controversy surrounding his commitment in the days leading up to National Signing Day as Miami coach Al Golden offered him an ultimatum to commit or lose his offer.
The Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington elected not to give his pledge and then spurned the school by committing to Arkansas on Wednesday morning.
The No. 166-ranked player in the nation was a major gain for the Arkansas class of Bret Bielema and was aided largely by the relationship between Razorbacks assistant Randy Shannon and high school coach Tim "Ice" Harris.
For more on the Arkansas class, visit HawgSports.com.
9:18 a.m.: Outlaw picks Texas Tech
Outlaw had been believed to be a favorite to head to Oklahoma after de-committing from Florida, but the 6-foot-4, 290-pound lineman became the first major victory for Kliff Kingsbury on the recruiting trail.
Outlaw had been silent with the media over the last few weeks of the process as he chose among Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas Tech.

9:03 a.m.: Bostwick signs with Florida
Once the owner of No. 1-ranked class in the country, Florida continues to battle for a No. 2 finish. It took a step in that direction with the signing of four-star defensive tackle Jaynard Bostwick.
His final decision was between Florida and Miami.
Bostwick announced early this morning that he would leave the South Florida area and move north to fill in the class in Gainesville.
The loss was big for Miami, which has struggled to land front seven players on defense.

8:45 a.m.: Vols gets highly recruited three-star
Major attention on National Signing Day is generally reserved for top-tier players, but Tennessee coaches are very happy to land three-star defensive end Jaylen Miller from Gaffney (S.C.) High.
Miller was a hotly recruited player in the region with near 20 offers and many major colleges looking to secure his services.
The last time on the field, Miller made analysts notice his play at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.
Rivals.com regional analyst Woody Wommack wrote of the player, "The thing that stood out most about Miller on Monday was his explosiveness off the line. He was halfway in the backfield before opposing offensive linemen got their hands on him. Miller has deceptive strength, is physical and showed a good rip move to beat the opposition."

7:47 a.m.: Nkemdiche selects Ole Miss
Nkemdiche was the top-ranked player in the Rivals100 from wire-to-wire and showed his dominance at the Under Armour All-America Game.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound end will join his brother, Denzel Nkemdiche, on the defensive side of the ball, and he is expected to make an immediate impact.
7:40 a.m.: Rivals250 defensive end flips
Daniel is a 6-foot-3, 249-pound strongside end from Avon (Ind.) High who took his last official visit to Auburn during the last official visit weekend of the recruiting season.
7:29 a.m.: No. 1 fullback flips to Miami
The top-ranked fullback in the country has chosen a new home -- Miami.
At 6-foot-1 and 222-pounds, Edwards is listed as the No. 4 player in the state of New York and a three-star prospect overall.
His season totals of 1,411 yards and 16 scores impressed Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell.
"(He) is a tall back who plays a bit upright, but he's clearly a very good athlete. He catches the ball naturally, and he has a gliding speed about him that makes him appear to be running with little effort."
