No. 13 Sr & KU Commit Quentin Grimes Scores 44

ESPN No. 13 ranked high school senior and Kansas commit Quentin Grimes poured in 44 points for Woodlands College Park HS (TX) in a 64-77 loss to St. Edwards (OH) at the Torrey Pines Holiday Classic in California.

 

Grimes also grabbed 9 rebounds in the game.

 

“I felt like I played well, but it wasn’t enough to get the win,” Grimes told Zagsblog. “I feel like we were lacking a bit on the defensive end, with our rebounding. I think that’s something we’ll work on in the next game for sure.”

 

Grimes, a 6-5 point guard averaged a whopping 28.1 points with 8 rebounds and 5 assists last season for Woodlands, when he was named the Montgomery Courier’s Player of the Year.

 

He also had a strong AAU season, averaging 21.2 points, 4.3 assists, and 4 rebounds for Basketball University at the Adidas Summer Championships.

 

Grimes said he is looking forward to joining Kansas next season.

 

“I’m gonna have to be the primary leader next year [at KU] because there will be a lot of guards leaving,” said Grimes. “Hopefully, I can lead the team to a final four and championship.”

 

“Just to play for a hall of fame coach like Coach [Bill] Self [is exciting],” added Grimes. “He’s had a lot of good guards like Mario Chalmers. I’m excited to pick his brain about work ethic and everything. I think it will help me tremendously.”

 

Grimes prides himself on his versatile game.

 

“I’m a big guard, and can score inside and out,” Grimes told Scout. “I can get to the rim and finish through contact, but also find my teammates when they’re open.”
