According to a source close to Kansas transfer Quentin Grimes, the five-star PG applied for admission to UH on Thursday. This does not guarantee that he will announce to UH but it is another indicator that Grimes intends to play for Kelvin Sampson.
Another solid source told GoCoogs on Wednesday that it was looking “very good” on Grimes. Later in the day, college basketball insider Jon Rothstein said Grimes would be making an announcement on Friday. It is generally believed to be between UH and A&M.
EDIT: A few hours after we published this article, Quentin Grimes announced his intent to transfer to UH. Our scoop was accurate.
Grimes was a McDonald’s All-American during his senior season at College Park HS in the Woodlands. According to 247, he was the #10 player in the country and #1 in Texas. He was also offered by Kentucky, Arizona, Marquette, Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, OU, and Louisville.
It is likely that Grimes will need to sit out next season. If Kansas is served with an NCAA infractions notice in July as many observers expect, that could be a basis for a waiver.
