The Deseret Morning News has learned that the 6-foot-6, 219-pound sophomore has received his official release from Oklahoma and plans to join the Utes on Sunday. As a transfer, Grady can practice but not play for Utah this season. He'll then have two years of eligibility remaining.

Grady completed 12 of 14 passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in limited action last season. He is a friend of Utah running back Darryl Poston and his older brother played for offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig at Fresno State.
