Bio

In the sixth round, the Chargers added to their stable of running backs with the selection of high-scoring Marion Grice from Arizona State. A 6-0, 208-pounder, Grice was a second-team All-Pac-12 pick and an honorable mention All-America choice by several publications as a senior.

A native of Houston, Texas, Grice spent his first two collegiate seasons at Blinn (Tex.) College. He wasn’t heavily recruited out of high school and hadn’t met the necessary academic requirements to play at a four-year college, which hurt his stock. For a time, Grice found a job bagging groceries before ultimately enrolling at Blinn. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as Grice rushed for more than 2,000 yards and 33 touchdowns in two seasons at Blinn, opening the door for him to attend Arizona State. At ASU, Grice scored 39 career touchdowns, fourth-most in school history, while totaling 3,045 all-purpose yards on rushes, receptions and kickoff returns. As a senior, he led the team with 1,941 all-purpose yards (second-most in school history) and he was the only NCAA FBS player in the nation with at least 400 yards in each of the previously-mentioned categories. In two seasons at ASU, Grice scored 234 points, most-ever by a Sun Devil in a two-year span. As a junior, his eight touchdown catches were the most in the nation by a running back.

TRANSACTION HISTORY: Sixth-round pick by Chargers (201), May 10, 2014.

• Signed to the Chargers practice squad on August 31, 2014.
