Grimble set to officially visit USC this week

Bishop Gorman tight end and USC verbal commit Xavier Grimble (Scout.com's No. 1 rated TE) plans on taking his official visit to USC this weekend when the Trojans face Oregon State.

"Xavier is taking his official visit this weekend," said Grimble's uncle Jerry Grimble. "His mom and dad, and my mom will be there with him."

Xavier Grimble's cousin and Jerry Grimbles son, Jalen Grimble (2011 DL with an SC offer), originally planned to join his cousin on the visit, but those plans have changed.

"This is Xavier's time to be wine and dined and for him to get the attention of the coaching staff," Jerry Grimble said. "We decided that Jalen will attend a game or two later in the year when Xavier visits again."

Our phone conversation with Jerry Grimble was cut short because a friend phoned in while we were talking.

Before Franklin called, Jerry Grimble said, "Xavier will not visit any other school."

SCPlaybook will attend Bishop Gorman's Thursday night rivalry game with Spring Valley High. We will have video highlights and interviews after the game.
