ASU vs. Colorado: Todd Graham thinks RB Marion Grice is ahead of the curve

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Arizona State Head Coach Todd Graham thinks RB Marion Grice is just scratching the surface and is ahead of the curve in his first season with the Sun Devils.

Arizona State Head Coach told Doug Haller of AZCentral.com that he thinks running back Marion Grice is just scratching the surface and is ahead of the curve, as he feels it takes a newcomer at least half a season to adjust to a new team.

Grice was the top-rated running back out of junior college last season. Grice, who played his first two years at Blinn College, chose Arizona State over Mississippi and Houston among others.

Grice has carried the ball 36 times for 206 yards and five touchdowns so far this season. His best game of the season came in his debut, when he carried 14 times for 107 yards and three touchdowns versus Northern Arizona on August 30.

Freshman D.J. Foster has equally split carries with Grice so far this season, rushing 36 times for 208 yards and two touchdowns.

Arizona State is 4-1 on the season and leads the Pac-12 South Division heading into their road game versus Colorado this Thursday.
