Last month, the Kansas Jayhawks learned that Quentin Grimes would enter the NCAA transfer portal. It’s a quick and unfortunate end to his career in Lawrence.
Grimes is a former five-star recruit and came to Kansas as the No. 10 overall recruit in his class, per 247Sports. His perimeter shooting was supposed to make a huge difference for the team.
In his only season with the Jayhawks, Grimes averaged 8.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per contest. Those aren’t jaw-dropping numbers, but clearly the Texas native has the skill to play against top competition.
There isn’t a decision yet as to where Grimes will transfer to, however, it sounds like a pretty significant announcement is coming.
According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Grimes will make an announcement about his future plans on Friday.
He recently spent time visiting Houston and Texas A&M.

Grimes would have to sit one year before returning to the hardwood. That shouldn’t prevent teams from pursuing him since he still has three years of eligibility remaining.
If his recent visits are any indication of where Grimes wants to play, it’s starting to look like he’ll play closer to home. Buzz Williams is looking to bring in talent at Texas A&M, whereas Houston is trying to replace its former leader Corey Davis Jr.
We’ll know more about Grimes’ decision on Friday when he makes his announcement.
