Great Initiative There, Brandon

April 23, 2009

Great Scott! Here’s a little “back to the future” from’s Brandon Huffman: Apparently stud tight end prospect Xavier Grimble committed to USC this upcoming Friday.

Different sites began reporting early today that Grimble would make his college decision on Friday. Huffman, however, showed his competition what kind of amateurs they truly are, publishing Friday’s events two days ahead of time. (Huffman has yet to reveal the plans of Sentreal Henderson.)

Homerism is all in favor of the early bird catching the worm, but something tells me Grimble’s future self would have preferred to break the news.

Some excerpts from the article on Grimble’s commitment are below. Maybe present-day Grimble will change his mind when he reads how hard it was to tell Bob Stoops he isn’t coming to OU.

Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman tight end Xavier Grimble, the top-ranked tight end in the country by, is going to the Pac-10.

Grimble picked USC on Friday, continuing the Trojans run of elite prospects at the position.

“I told Coach Stoops I was committing to SC, that was the hardest thing I’ve ever did. After building that relationship, I was going the other way.” 

“I committed ysterday, i told the coache,s family is super excited- its my decision, but they wanted me to go there Recruiting other guys to SC.”

Grimble had offers from all over the country, and said the most serious suitors for him were.

(UPDATE: It appears as though SuperPrep/Scout has removed the article. Better late than never, I guess.)
