Woodlands College Park High School graduate Quentin Grimes would be the first to tell you that you can go home again.
Grimes transferred to the University of Houston from Kansas prior to the 2019-2020 season and was permitted by the NCAA to compete immediately for his hometown Cougars. Grimes, a 6-foot-5-inch, 205-pound guard, made the best of his homecoming as he scored 13 points on 5-for-9 shooting in Houston’s season-opening 84-56 win over Alabama St. on Nov. 12.
As a true freshman in Lawrence, Grimes was one of only three players to start every game for head coach Bill Self. He averaged 8.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in all 36 contests.
Grimes helped lead Team USA to a gold medal at the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 World Championships, earning MVP honors and an All-Tournament selection.
At College Park, he enjoyed a phenomenal senior season in which he was named 2017-18 Texas Gatorade Player of the Year, Mr. Basketball, the 6A Player of the Year and Texas Mr. Basketball.
