Track Adds Grace to 2012-13 Signees
WACO, Texas - Baylor track and field head coach Todd Harbour announced the addition of standout hurdler Bryce Grace to his list of National Letter of Intent signees for the 2012-2013 academic year on Tuesday.
Grace, a McKinney, Texas, native, joins a group that now consists of seven signees on the men's side to bring the 2012-13 recruiting class total to 12. With addition of Grace, the men's class now covers an even wider variety of events having already signed sprinter Alex Reece (Houston, Texas), quartermilers Isaiah Duke (Edmond, Okla.) and Richard Gary (Duncanville, Texas), miler Chris McElroy (Kingsport, Tenn.), distance runner Silvester Harrison (Killeen, Texas) and triple jumper Felix Obi (El Paso, Texas).
"We are delighted to add Bryce to this outstanding recruiting class," Harbour said. "He's a super young man, comes from a great family, and he is going to be a great addition for us. We have wanted to sign a big hurdler for awhile, and we feel like we've got a good one in Bryce."
Without a big impact in the hurdles since 2006, Grace, a Dallas Adams High School product, brings a highly successful prep background to fill the need for Baylor. After opening the current outdoor season with personal bests in both the 110 hurdles and 300 hurdles, Grace's time of 13.83 in the 110 hurdles is the fastest time in the nation so far this season. He also opened the year with a personal best of 38.8 in the 300 hurdles. In two indoor races this season, Grace claimed the 60 hurdles title at the Texas A&M Indoor Classic, then followed with a 60-hurdles time of 7.96 at Arkansas to rank second in Texas and 15th nationally.
Entering the season, Grace came off a junior year that featured district titles in both hurdle disciplines, and a regional title and state 4A runner-up finish in the 110 hurdles. As a junior, he had the 10th-fastest time in the state of Texas and a top-50 time nationally in the high hurdles.

Although Bryce is more 110 than 300, I could not help but notice his time in comparison to RGIII--who ran 3.5 seconds faster in the 300 during high school. Not to denigrate Bryce but to give yet another indication of just how great an athlete RGIII is.

It will be nice having a 110 hurdler who can contend for points! The women sure have a 60/100 hurdler.
