The No. 1 cornerback in the class of 2021 named his top 4 schools on Sunday, and it appears there is a 50 percent chance he’ll play in the SEC.
5-star prospect Tony Grimes tweeted a video to reveal a top 4 of Texas A&M, North Carolina, Georgia and Ohio State, narrowing down his recruitment of 41 scholarship offers. While Aggies and Bulldogs fans are understandably excited by the news, they’ll have to be patient. The Princess Anne standout has scheduled his commitment announcement for Dec. 1.
In September 2018, 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn recognized Grimes’ potential as a future first-round NFL Draft pick:
Wide shoulders and good length. Frame of safety with cornerback skills. Instinctual player with high skill level. Physical and smooth. Tracks ball well and has great timing. Opens hips and runs with ease. Long strider who can cover on long crossing routes and deep throws. Strong upper body helps re-route receivers with jams. Comfortable in backpedal and explodes forward out of it. Good tackler and asset in run defense. High IQ on and off field. Leadership qualities. Must get stronger in lower body. Ready to play at elite program when he steps on campus. First round NFL draft pick potential.
Grimes, listed at 6-feet, 180 pounds, recorded 48 tackles and 4 interceptions in 2019 as a junior. Highlights of that season can be viewed below:
