On Friday night, five-star wide receiver Trevon Grimes suffered a torn ACL in his left knee as his St. Thomas Aquinas team took on Bishop Gorman. Grimes went down with the injury in the second half, before St. Thomas Aquinas went on to lose the game in a tripe-overtime thriller.
The good news for Grimes, who is committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes as part of their top-rated 2017 class, is that there are no broken bones or fractures in his leg so he is expected to be 100 percent healthy by the fall.
Following the news of his injury, Grimes took to Twitter to release an emotional statement vowing to come back better than ever.
“First I just want to explain to everyone what a fantastic high school football career I have had. All the ups and downs have made me who I am today. I want to thank everyone who has helped get me to where I am today,” he wrote.
“Sadly my high school career has been cut short due to an ACL injury. One thing I am certain about is I will be back and stronger than ever and the man above has a plan for me. Also I know my team will hold it down for me. Much love to all my supporters we are in this together.”
Grimes has the talent to be a major contributor for the Buckeyes immediately if his recovery goes according to plan.
Entering his senior year at St. Thomas Aquinas, 247 Sports rated Grimes as the No. 16 overall prospect, the No. 3 wide receiver in the country and the No. 3 player in Florida.
