The 6-4, 230-pound Grace, a Rivals250 to Watch member, was recently offered by the Spartans, and he talked to about the latest in his recruitment Tuesday night.

"I actually haven't heard too much from them at all," Grace said. "Right after I originally got my Notre Dame offer, Coach Harlon Barnett came in to see me, so I talked to him a little bit then.

"I got officially offered last week, from what I know."
