Quentin Grimes is officially back home.
The former College Park star signed with Houston on Friday, which was formally announced by the university the same day. Grimes played his freshman season at Kansas.
Grimes will have to sit out the 2019-2020 season due to NCAA Transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility remaining once he starts playing games again as a redshirt sophomore for the 2020-2021 season.
"One of the things I have always liked about Quentin is his basketball IQ and his ability to make plays. Everyone knows he can score, but one of his biggest strengths is being a playmaker," University of Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said in a release. "Quentin is pretty good at a lot of things but what he does really well is think the game. That's how he is going to help us. I am excited to welcome Quentin and his family to Houston Basketball."

With a new season on the horizon, the Astros have high hopes for 2024 after coming just one game shy of being in the World Series for three consecutive seasons.
If Houston wants to get back to the Fall Classic in 2024, they're going to have to rely on their pitching. Owner Jim Crane believes the club has 8 starting pitchers when Luis Garcia and Lance McCullers Jr. return mid-season.
Which allows several of the starters to move to the bullpen and provide even more depth. Add those guys to Bryan Abreu, Ryan Pressly, and Josh Hader and you have a recipe for success.
Check out the video above as ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham goes through the entire staff and makes his case for the Astros having the best pitching staff in baseball.
