Grimes officially signs with Houston
Quentin Grimes is officially back home.
The former College Park star signed with Houston on Friday, which was formally announced by the university the same day. Grimes played his freshman season at Kansas.
Grimes will have to sit out the 2019-2020 season due to NCAA Transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility remaining once he starts playing games again as a redshirt sophomore for the 2020-2021 season.
"One of the things I have always liked about Quentin is his basketball IQ and his ability to make plays. Everyone knows he can score, but one of his biggest strengths is being a playmaker," University of Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said in a release. "Quentin is pretty good at a lot of things but what he does really well is think the game. That's how he is going to help us. I am excited to welcome Quentin and his family to Houston Basketball."
Grimes started in 36 games for the Jayhawks last season, of which he recorded double digit points in 13 of them and was second on the team with 72 assists.
"We had a great visit when my family came to Houston, and I knew a lot of the guys on the team. I liked they way they embraced me and made me feel welcome," Grimes said in the news release. "I liked everything about Coach Sampson and the way he coaches the game. He is a players' coach. He lets his players play through mistakes, but he still coaches them hard."
