Four schools will be making in-home visits to five-star point guard Quentin Grimes this weekend, according to Scout’s Evan Daniels.
Kentucky will join Texas, Marquette, and overwhelming favorite Kansas as schools to visit Grimes between Saturday and Sunday.
After these visits, he is expected to begin setting up official visits to each school.
Kentucky has not been seen as much of a contender for Grimes, who has been a heavy Kansas lean for quite some time. Grimes is an intriguing prospect as a 6’4 or 6’5 combo guard that can play both positions.
He has been primarily recruited as a point guard, but has said in the past that he can play off the ball. It is unknown how each team plans to use him could affect his decision.
Kentucky is still the favorite for point guard Immanuel Quickley. If Quickley and Grimes both committed to Kentucky, Grimes would likely play more off-the-ball.
News has been quiet regarding Grimes and Kentucky, as many had viewed Kentucky cooling off him as the Grimes-to-Kansas chatter has substantially grown.
It should be interesting to see how Kentucky handles this recruitment.
Grimes is ranked as the #11 player in the 2018 class, according to Scout.
