College Park (TX) 2018 four-star guard Quentin Grimes (@QdotGrimes) picked up an offer from Tony Bennett and Virginia, per @Top100Talent.— Chip Miller (@BLUEChip_Miller) September 7, 2016
Grimes, a four-star recruit according to 24/7 Sports, ESPN, and Scout, has offers from a litany of schools including Arizona, Texas A&M, Stanford, Oklahoma, Florida, Miami, Wake Forest, Texas, UCLA, and Kansas (shocker...I see you, Bill Self).
At 6-4, Grimes has good height for a point guard, and is ranked in the top 35 for the 2018 class by the big three (24/7, ESPN, and Scout). He has the ability to take it to the rim, but has a nice touch on his jumper as well as from beyond the arc.
Check out some highlights:
The College Park High School standout (not THAT College Park) has had an impressive summer, garnering more attention from top colleges. In his sophomore season, he averaged 16.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game.
When asked by Phenom Hoop Report, Grimes described his game as “controlling the game and playing at speeds I want to play at and not letting people slow me down or speed me up. My strength would be my play making ability for me and my teammates and shooting the ball and getting to the rim."
So far, Virginia has offered nine players in the ESPN 60 list for 2018. With Marial Shayok, Isaiah Wilkins, Devon Hall, Darius Thompson, and Austin Nichols all graduating or finishing their eligibility after the 2017-2018 year, Bennett and the Hoos have several scholarships to play with for the 2018 class.
What do you think, Hoos?
