Bobcats snare Sunshine State defender

Defensive end Tyree Graves (Largo, Fla./Pinellas Park) has pledged to sign with Ohio of the Mid-American Conference, the Tampa Bay Times reports. He plans to officially visit the Bobcats this weekend.

Stony Brook also extended a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-3, 230-pound senior. Other programs, including Florida Atlantic, showed interest.

He was a first-team all-county performer as a senior after registering eight sacks and four interceptions.
