Georgia is the favorite to land Grimes, according to 247Sports’ “Crystal Ball” projections.
“(Defensive backs) coach (Charlton) Warren, with that visit I took down there, he shot me some game and I love what he has planned for his players to get better. I sat in a meeting with coach (Kirby) Smart, and coach Smart is running a good program. They play big-time ball. They’re SEC,” he told 247Sports.
Grimes plans on announcing his decision on Dec. 1.
