The 20-year-old Graulich has come through the academy set-up at Gloucester, playing in the LV= Cup and in the friendly against Fiji.
Pirates head coach Ian Davies: told the club's official site: "James is known to us having played against us for Rotherham back in 2010 and I actually recommended him to Toby Booth as a player to 'keep an eye on' so it is great he will now be pulling on a Pirates shirt.
"Will comes highly recommended by Alex Brown at Gloucester Rugby and obviously Alex knows a thing or two about playing in the second row.
"Will is a young player with enormous potential and it is our job to make sure he is given the platform to fully reach it."
