Former Texas A&M senior CB Tony Grimes flips commitment from Michigan State to UNLV

2020 5-star prospect Tony Grimes has flipped from his initial decision in the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The former Texas A&M senior cornerback entered the portal on New Year’s Day after spending a year in Bryan-College Station. Before choosing the Aggies in the portal, he spent three years in Chapel Hill, North Carolina playing for the Tarheels.

Grimes initially chose Michigan State as his next destination on Jan. 7. However, on Saturday he posted a video on X that alluded to his upcoming decision to flip from the Spartans.

Then on Sunday, he announced via X that he would be “coming to the West Coast soon,” and has committed to play at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Grimes played three seasons at the University of North Carolina from 2020 to 2022 before coming to 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 Rebels program with one year of collegiate eligibility remaining.
