St. Thomas Aquinas is one of the best high schools for high school football in the country.  Year in and year out, they produce top teams, while also sending players to Division I programs all across the country.  Ohio State has dipped into the talent at St. Thomas Aquinas, most recently with Joey Bosa.  Class of 2017 star  Trevon Grimes hopes to be the next great player from the school to translate his game to the next level.  Grimes, a 6-3 wide receiver, is only a rising sophomore but already holds offers from some of the top programs nationally.  He has offers from Tennessee, Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina, LSU, UCF, and Syracuse.  While he holds those offers, one offer he really wants is from Ohio State.

Trevon Grimes Really Wants an offer from Ohio State

“I grew up watching them,” Grimes said of why he has a strong interest in Ohio State.  “I have family in Cincinnati and now If I have an opportunity to go there, I really would like to.  If they were to offer me, they would probably be my leader.”

Grimes has not been to Ohio State, but he is going to Columbus this weekend with his team to compete at Friday Night Lights.  He is very excited to compete and prove to the coaches that he deserves an offer.  He is also hoping to check out some of the things that Ohio State and the coaches, have to offer.  “I cannot wait to get to Columbus and check everything out,” Grimes said of his upcoming visit.  “I am also excited to get some advice from the coaches, and get better at the game.”  This is a perfect chance for him to show his skills on the football field in front of Urban Meyer and staff.  If Grimes performs well enough at the camp, I think he could earn an offer.

There are many players on the team that are going through the same recruiting process right now as Grimes and it definitely helps him with his process.  He told me that some of the older guys have given him some good advice for both the process and football in general.  Sam Bruce, who recently committed to Miami (FL), has given him the best advice telling him, “Stay humble, and never be satisfied.”  This is making the process for Grimes a lot easier by having such good role models.  Trevon enjoys working out for football and getting ready for the season.  He and his team are focused on a state championship this upcoming season and he should to be a huge impact on the talented team.  I asked Grimes what he would like to say to Buckeye fans and he told me, “I am glad to be apart of the legacy ! And hope to gain many more Buckeye fans! Go BUCKEYES !”  He is very excited for Friday Night Lights and I think he could earn an offer.  They are going to be the leader if they offer him.
