Houston lands Quentin Grimes, top transfer from Kansas

Quentin Grimes announced Thursday his decision to transfer from Kansas to Houston for the 2019-20 season.

The 6-foot-5 guard also was considering Texas A&M, according to 247Sports, as The Woodlands, Texas, native wanted to make a move closer to home. He is expected to apply for a waiver to be eligible immediately at Houston as he has three years of eligibility left. However, Grimes would have to sit out next season if the NCAA declines his waiver.

Grimes, who finished last season averaging 8.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27.4 minutes per game, was considered to be a future lottery pick entering his freshman season. He struggled with consistency, though he started all 36 games.

He was one of four Jayhawks players to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft, but he withdrew his name after attending the combine. Kansas coach Bill Self shared his support for Grimes’ decision.
