Bill Self has a special talent on the way in the form of The Woodlands (Texas) College Park product Quentin Grimes.
A 5-star recruit from the Houston area, the elite combo guard recently took part in the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Game, and it’s safe to say Grimes put on a show.

Quentin Grimes stuffed the stat sheet
As a starter in the McDonald’s All-American Game, Grimes poured on 14 points of 6-of-10 shooting from the field, and added 6 assists, 1 rebounds and 1 blocked shot in 19 minutes.
Grimes also participated in the dunk contest, reaching the finals against Duke signee Zion Williamson, and he finished as the runner-up following a between-the-legs dunk that earned a score of 97.
Along with Grimes, 5-star point guard Devon Dotson and 4-star center David McCormack each represented Kansas at the game. Dotson finished with 8 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists, while McCormack notched a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds in 15 minutes.
With Grimes headlining an elite incoming class that’s ranked No. 5 nationally and No. 1 in the Big 12, it’s a safe bet that Kansas will be a force yet again in 2018-19, despite losing the likes of Devonte Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk.
Grimes is ranked as the nation’s No. 11 player, No. 2 combo guard and the No. 1 player in Texas, per the 247Sports composite.
