Former Texas A&M senior CB Tony Grimes commits to Michigan State in transfer portal

2020 5-star prospect Tony Grimes has chosen Michigan State as his next home via the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The former Texas A&M senior cornerback announced his decision with a since-deleted X post on Sunday evening. Grimes posted a clip from the movie 300 in which Gerard Butler’s character screams, “This is Sparta!”

Justin Thind, the Michigan State reporter for 247Sports, posted about the news nearly simultaneously with Grimes’ original X post. Grimes reposted the report, basically confirming the news.

Grimes played three seasons at the University of North Carolina from 2020 to 2022 before coming to Bryan College Station. While in Chapel Hill, he tallied 97 tackles, 20 pass breakups and an interception.

The senior defensive back dealt with injuries during his tenure with the Aggies, limiting his playing time at Kyle Field. After taking a redshirt season in 2023, Grimes transfers to the Spartans program with one year of collegiate eligibility remaining.
