Quentin Grimes picks Kansas Jayhawks Basketball

Grimes was a recruit that Kentucky showed a good deal of interest in.

Hoop Seen

5-star combo guard Quentin Grimes has committed to the Kansas Jayhawks.

Grimes is the No. 16 player in the class of 2018 by the 247 Sports Composite, and the No. 11 player on Scout.com’s rankings.

Though John Calipari and Kentucky had interest in Grimes and pursued him, they were never in a favorable position with him. Kansas was the overwhelming favorite in his Crystal Ball, receiving almost every prediction while Kentucky received none.

Grimes visited Kentucky and received visits from Calipari and assistant coach Kenny Payne before making his decision.

Grimes cut his list to seven schools back in August: Kentucky, Kansas, Arizona, Baylor, Marquette, Texas and Texas A&M.

Grimes is a combo guard that stands 6-4, 185 lbs. He’s got the size to play either spot, making him big for a point guard. He does pretty much everything you can ask of a guard. He can score from just about anywhere on the floor and can pass and direct an offense as well.

Grimes is the fourth commit to Kansas’ 2018 class, a class that’s shaping up nicely with two 5-star and two 4-star recruits.
