With rumors swirling about his status with the program, Ohio State freshman wide receiver Trevon Grimes will reportedly transfer to the University of Florida. A graduate of Miami’s St. Thomas Aquinas high school, the former five-star WR signed with Florida today, according to the SunSentinel. The UF compliance office is working to finalize the move now.

After taking a leave from the OSU team to deal with “family health issues” in October, Grimes said, “I just felt like [Florida] fit for me. It’s close to home. Of course, being in my situation that I’m in right now, I have to be close to home,” according to the SunSentinel.

The paper noted that being closer to family was a major reason why Grimes decided to transfer, saying of UF, “I feel like I fit in to that offense and that program very well.”

Grimes saw action in two games this season for the Buckeyes collecting just 20 receiving yards. This is coming off a senior season in high school that saw him tear his ACL against fellow Buckeye freshman Tate Martell’s Bishop Gorman High School.

We wish the best to Grimes in Gainesville.
