Quentin Grimes, the 6-foot-5 combo guard from The Woodlands College Park (TX) High School, announced his commitment to Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks on Wednesday at his high school, before posting his commitment to Twitter.

“I will be attending the University of Kansas,” Grimes told ZagsBlog in a phone interview. “I chose them because they have a winning tradition. They won 13 Big 12 championship straight, they have one national championship and hopefully I can help bring them another one. And I’ll be playing for a Hall of Fame coach in Bill Self. He lets their guards run the show. He plays multiple guards out there at one time, just really letting them have a lot of freedom out there and run the show.”

According to 247Sports, Grimes is ranked as the No. 17 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 3 combo guard in the class. He joins Silvio De Souza, David McCormack, and Devon Dotson as the fourth commit in the Jayhawks’ 2018 class. All three players signed National Letters of Intent this past week, as Grimes signed on Wednesday.

Grimes, who chose Kansas over Texas, originally had a list of seven. Before taking his official visits, Grimes cut his list to four and took visits to Texas (Sept. 22), Kentucky (Sept. 29), Kansas (Oct. 13), and Marquette (Oct. 20).

Kansas is also in the running for 2018 guard Romeo Langford, who recently included KU in his final three, and top-two player in 2018 Zion Williamson. Williamson took his official visit to KU for Late Night in the Phog earlier this year (Sept. 30), while Langford took his official visit last month (Oct. 27).
