Five-Star Point Guard Quentin Grimes Cuts to Four; Sets Official Visit Dates


Kansas, Kentucky, Marquette and Texas remain for College Park High (TX) 2018 point guard Quentin Grimes. Texas A&M, Baylor and Arizona made up Grimes’ original list of seven schools.

“Those are really my final four right now,” Grimes told ZAGSBLOG. The five-star point guard hosted each school for an in-home visit this week.

As far as official visits, Grimes is expected to be in Austin the weekend of September 22. He will travel to Lexington the following weekend for his official to Kentucky. Grimes will then take a week away from visits before tripping to Kansas on October 13. Marquette receives his final official the weekend of October 20th.

Kansas is the heavy favorite according to the 247Sports CrystalBall, and their message to Grimes is about priority.

“I’m a big priority to them,” Grimes said of his recent in-home with the Hall of Fame coach Bill Self. “I have to sign with them, they have to sign with me, I’m a must-get for them. I can come in there and be the primary scorer, primary ball-handler and be able to play alongside Charlie Moore with them. Also be able to play with their good players in their frontcourt as well. Just come in there and be a big contributor to their offense.”

Kansas may be the favorite, but John Calipari and Kentucky have been making a strong push as of late.

“Coach Cal’s message is he gets players to the league,” Grimes said of his recent in-home with Kentucky. “I’m definitely a player that can get down with that. Come in there and play alongside other five-star players, get better every day, development on and off the court. Can’t help but get better playing with other great players, all playing alongside each other and pushing each other. So I could go in there, be the primary ball-handler, overall have a good year with them and try to get them a national championship.”

Grimes played with Basketball University on the adidas Gauntlet summer circuit. The five-star averaged 16.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 28.1 minutes per outing.

Grimes said he has no time table on a decision at this point.
