Griffin Grady is an intriguing prospect out of Dublin (Coffman) Ohio, who many believe has the skills to play either inside or outside linebacker at the next level. That type of versatility is valuable in Wisconsin's 3-4 defensive alignment, as we've recently seen with Leon Jacobs and Jack Cichy. With a young, talented linebacker corps already in place, it may be a couple years before Grady sees the field, but he is an intriguing prospect to keep an eye on for the future.
Grady (6'2, 205 pounds) became Wisconsin's 10th commitment of the 2016 class during the summer and joins a strong linebacker group that includes Noah Burks, Dallas Jeanty and Mason Stokke. Grady visited Madison on Jan. 15 and chose the Badgers over Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky, Northwestern and Pitt.
