2021 five-star Tony Grimes is the top cornerback in nation with Pro Bowl potential at the NFL level. Ahead of his junior season, he’s decided to cut down his list of potential schools.
On Wednesday, Grimes revealed a list of 13 schools he’s still pursuing. The list consists of Alabama, LSU, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State, Oklahoma, and Texas.
247Sports rates Grimes as the No. 10 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 1 cornerback in the nation, and the No. 1 recruit from the state of Virginia.
Grimes’ Crystal Ball predictions currently have his decision split between Texas A&M and Virginia Tech. Those two programs have split the only two predictions recorded by recruiting analysts over at 247 thus far. As a 2021 recruit, his status is probably still very up in the air.
His scouting report draws pro comparisons to Chicago Bears All-Pro cornerback Kyle Fuller.

Tony Grimes has not yet taken his official visits, so it will be interesting to see which schools he checks out over the coming months.
Only a handful of the top recruits in the Class of 2021 have announced their commitments so far. Could Grimes be the next elite prospect to shake up the recruiting landscape?
