USC has joined the offer parade for DB Tony Grimes (6-0 170) of Hollywood, FL. He also has offers from Michigan, West Virginia, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Purdue, Oregon, Florida Atlantic, South Florida, Toledo and Ole Miss. Grimes also is getting interest from Tennessee, Oklahoma State, Ohio State and Georgia.
Grimes said he's talked to USC recruiter Jeep Hunter once and plans to talk to him again. "We're just sort of getting to know each other," Grimes said. "Next time we talk we're going to discuss a lot of stuff." Grimes says USC is attractive to him. "It's in the SEC, the most competition in college football," he said. "Who wouldn't want to be in that heat."
Grimes has never visited USC but plans to come in for camp this summer. He also plans to camp at Florida and Florida State. He attended junior day at Georgia. He does not have a favorite right now.
Grimes is a cover corner but can also play safety. He also expects to play on offense this season. Last season he had 41 tackles, 5 interceptions and 15 passes broken up.
