Sacramento (Calif.) Inderkum defensive tackle Greg Grimes committed last Wednesday to Utah State but the commitment didn't last long. After getting an offer from one of the premier programs in the WAC just a day later, the talented lineman had a change of heart.
Grimes, 6-1, 285 pounds is one of the top defensive tackle prospects in the state. He earned DL MVP honors at the NorCal NIKE Camp and had a big senior season earning numerous post season honors including area defensive player of the year.
On the recruiting front, Grimes took visits to San Diego State and Utah State and committed to the Aggies late last week.
"Greg loved the coaches, their goals and the new facilities at Utah State," Grimes father Greg Sr. said. "However, on Thursday, Greg got an offer from Boise State and after sleeping on it that night, he decided to commit to Boise State on Friday.
"We have been in discussions with Boise State for some time but it didn't look like they had a spot for Greg. Coach Stauffer has been recruiting Greg for the past few weeks and he kept saying to be patient and they would have an offer for him.
"We talked to him again last week and he anwered all of our questions and we feel Boise is just a perfect match. We like the facilities, dorms, campus life, the growing city and the blue turf.
"Greg never actually took an official visit to Boise State but we've been up there before on unofficial trips and he loved it. He loves their straight shooting coaches and they have a great plan for Greg, who just turned 17 years old, and they see a great upside to his future in Bronco country."
