2006: Brian Grimes Update

Brian Grimes has big time talent but many coaches are leery of where exactly the Philly native will play on the college level. He looks to show them what he can do on the perimeter this year at Brewster Academy.

Former Germantown Academy (PA) star Brian Grimes has made it clear in the past that he had some clear favorites atop his list of schools for quite some time. At one point the Virginia Cavaliers stood alone atop his list of schools. Is that still true?

Grimes is a hard working and versatile player from the Philadelphia area is now in a post graduate year at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. Back in Philly Grimes was forced to play power forward due to a lack of height on his Germantown Academy squad. For coach Jason Smith's Brewster Academy squad though Grimes looks to be making a big move from the post to the perimeter as a small forward or shooting guard.

Smith took some time to discuss the latest as to where the Philly native's recruitment stands currently. "Brian Grimes is the kind of kid that you have to see multiple times to appreciate him. If he had his choice at this time he'd go to Virginia or Stanford in a heartbeat. Lately he's been hearing from most of the A-10 schools and Ivy League schools though. Virginia's interest has dropped some but they have inquired about him from time to time. He actually visited LaSalle this weekend and will be back to school on Wednesday."
