Former St. Thomas Aquinas High School standout and Ohio State Buckeye receiver Trevon Grimes is transferring to Florida after just one season with the Buckeyes. The news was first reported by David Furones of the Sun Sentinel.
Grimes took an official leave of absence from the Ohio State football team in October to deal with a health issue in his family. Grimes has been at home in South Florida since leaving the team at that time.
Grimes was one of the top-ranked receivers in he 2017 recruiting cycle. An Under Armour All-American, he was named First Team All-Broward County as a senior, leading St. Thomas in receptions (27) and yards (496) before an injury cut his senior year short. He chose Ohio State over a number of schools, including Florida where his quarterback and teammate Jake Allen tried to recruit him to. Grimes will rejoin Allen when Grimes reports to the University of Florida for the spring semester.
