Grady chooses Vanderbilt

Armwood quarterback Joshua Grady has been one of the most exciting players in the state of Florida the past couple of years. Now the 6-foot-1, 195-pound standout plans to take his exciting play to the SEC and Vanderbilt University.

He committed this morning at the Seffner area high school and signed his national letter of intent.

Grady took a visit to the Vanderbilt campus last weekend and came away very impressed with not only head coach James Franklin, but the players, atmosphere and the university's medical program. Grady plans to take pre-med courses.

The all-state level performer completed 62-percent of his passes for 2,168 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior with just six interceptions. He also rushed for 830 yards and 14 more scores on 107 carries while leading Armwood to a 14-1 record and the Class 4A title game. Grady threw for 3,065 yards and 28 touchdowns against just three picks in 2009. The Hawks were 27-3 in the last two years with Grady's play at quarterback.

Grady was ranked 45th nationally as an athlete by Rivals.com, and 86th among all prospects in the state of Florida.

He becomes the third quarterback expected to sign with the Commodores on Wednesday.
