1st gear is starting to grab so late that car stalls

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and I just recently started having trouble with my 06 Goat, manual transmission. I don't know of the previous history, I've had the car for about 10k miles now and it now has a total of 70k. Just theories day I noticed that when disengaging the clutch, first gear grabs really late, and the car almost stalls unless I give it a good amount of gas. This doesn't happen all the time. It seems like it only happens when the clutch is maybe engaging part of the gear? Any idea what might be going on or any suggestions?
