Today 5 star consensus top 20 recruit Quentin Grimes committed to the University of Kansas. Grimes listed as a 6’5 185 lbs combo guard, picked the Jayhawks over Kentucky, Texas and Marquette. Quentin took his official visit to UK on September 29th and after the visit it seemed as the Cats caught some momentum in his recruitment, but it wasn’t enough to steer him away from the Jayhawks the long time favorite in his recruitment.
Kentucky continued to recruit Grimes even after the Quickley commit and felt they could coexist in the same backcourt. Grimes can play off the ball and is known as a score first guard. After Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro committed to the Cats it seemed very unlikely Grimes would join them at UK. In the Adidas Tournament this past summer Grimes averaged 25.7 ppg 4.7, rebs, 2.3 ast, 1,7 steals and hit 50% from 3 through the first three games.
BBN would have loved to have him in Lexington but we wish nothing but the best for Grimes as he heads to Kansas.
