I say possible, because it hasn't been positively ID'ed yet fyi but looks like it is her. (Not good with photos here so you need to look at the site)
http://ussgrunion.com/ (look in the blog)
They posted some recent pictures of the wreck they found last year and is ID'ed as a sub, which should pretty much confirm it as the grunion.
The bow is broken off (at least the first 25' or so of it) and looks like it imploded. Figured some of you may be interested as i didn't see anything on here about it.

Sons’ love for missing dad plumbs the ocean’s depths

Longing can chart a better course than MapQuest. After more than 60 years, the Abele brothers have finally found their father.

Lt. Cmdr. Jim Abele commanded the USS Grunion, a submarine that disappeared off the coast of Alaska during World War II. Seven years ago his sons made a deal with their hearts, not their heads, and went looking for him.
