USC wide receiver commit Randal Grimes competes at ASU camp

Arizona State is still competing for the future services of Las Vegas wide receiver Randal Grimes despite his commitment to USC.

When Randal Grimes committed to USC in April he said he'd still take some visits to other schools. On Saturday, the Las Vegas Desert Pines High 2017 wide receiver competed in Arizona State's Maroon and Gold Camp. 

"I'm committed to USC but I'm not locking my recruitment down in case of a change at USC and where it wouldn't be the best place for me," Grimes told following an impressive showing at the Sun Devils' camp. 

At 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, Grimes stood out from other receivers on Saturday, but not just literally. As the camp went on he continued to get stronger and make some of the most impressive plays on the football in the 7-on-7 segment. 

Some of those throws came from the hand of Ryan Kelley, the ASU 2017 quarterback commit from Basha High School. Grimes followed Kelley on twitter after the camp and said that ASU coaches used the opportunity to get the two players together on the field to develop chemistry. 

"[ASU wide receivers coach Jay] Norvell wanted to see me run a couple of routes with Ryan Kelley and also for me just to get some extra work in," he said. Grimes also got to work and learn from Norvell during position drills. 

"It was a great experience," Grimes said. "I really loved getting out there and competing today."

The No. 10 wide receiver prospect in the West, Grimes has collected a lot of scholarship offers during his recruitment. In addition to ASU and USC offers, Grimes reportedly has received an offer from Arizona, BYU, Colorado, Missouri, Oregon State, San Diego State, Tennessee, Utah, Washington State, West Virginia and others. 

"I'm a 6-foot-5 wide receiver who can go up and get the ball," Grimes said in a previous interview with "But I have the speed and quickness to compliment my frame as well."
