The Tennessean.com is reporting that Vanderbilt quarterback Josh Grady has requested a position change to wide receiver.
quote:Playing quarterback against Texas A&M at the end of last season, Grady injured his knee but seems to be practicing this fall without restriction. He played wide receiver for the Commodores in 2012.
"Josh came in and talked to the coaches, and really I think he made a smart decision," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said after Monday's practice. "It gives quarterbacks reps, but by the same token it makes us better. Josh is a good enough athlete to step out and run routes, put his hands on the ball and give us a guy who understands the offense."
Grady, who worked out at the wide receiver position on Monday, caught seven passes for 89 yards in 13 games as a receiver in his redshirt freshman season.
