Ongoing Evaluation

"Cal is close to home and I like that they are in the Pac-10," Greg Grimes said. "I love their fast tempo defense. They are a great team and are always pretty good. They seem to be getting better and I like how they are always one of the top teams in the Pac-10." Berkeley is only one and half-hours from Grimes' home and he has attended the Bears' games against Tennessee and Oregon.

Greg Grimes, the 6-foot-1, 289-pound three-star defensive tackle from Inderkum High School in Sacramento, Calif., has helped lead his team to a 6-1 record with over 50 tackles, four sacks and three fumbles caused.

Grimes' only scholarship offer is from San Diego State, but he says he's drawing interest from California, Washington, USC and Oregon as well. He favors the Bears over the Huskies, Trojans, Aztecs and Ducks.

"Cal is close to home and I like that they are in the Pac-10," Grimes said. "I love their fast tempo defense. They are a great team and are always pretty good. They seem to be getting better and I like how they are always one of the top teams in the Pac-10."

Berkeley is only one and half-hours from Grimes' home and he has attended the Bears' games against Tennessee and Oregon.

He doesn't have any official visits set up yet. "I just got cleared by the NCAA clearinghouse, so I'll be setting up my visit to San Diego State soon.

"San Diego is just a great city and they have a really nice campus," he said. "The coaches are really nice and I like the attitude they have toward the game. They are just very positive and optimistic about everything."

Although Grimes' father (Greg Grimes, Sr) played strong safety at Washington, he admits that he grew up liking USC. "I just like everything about USC," he said. "I love the defense and how they just always seem to be clicking. They hit hard too.

"But I like Washington a lot as well," he said. "I really like coach Tyrone Willingham. He's a good dude and a great role model."

Grimes, ranked as the No. 57 defensive tackle in the country by Scout.com, says that from the schools that haven't offered him yet, Washington and Oregon seem the most interested. "But they are all recruiting me," he said. "I just get the most mail from Washington and Oregon. I sent them all tape from the beginning of my season and they said they are still in the evaluating process. I'll send them more tape after the season and we'll see what happens."

He reports a 3.2 core GPA and a 1425 SAT (three-parts).
