On the first day of 2020 the Florida Gators got good news about their 2020 football team. Receiver Trevon Grimes will return for his senior season.
Grimes, a transfer from Ohio State, was the Gators’ 5th leading receiver with 33 receptions for 491 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2019.
“After a great 2019 season I have discussed my future with my family and my coaches,” Grimes wrote on Twitter. “I am excited to say that you will see me playing in The Swamp in 2020. I want to finish my degree and help lead the University of Florida to a championship. Happy New Year Gator Nation.”
Getting Grimes back is huge for Florida. The Gators are losing four senior wide receivers and five of their six top pass catchers from 2019. Grimes will step into a leadership role for Florida and will be the go-to receiver for Kyle Trask in 2020.
