Jayhawks guard Quentin Grimes announces he’s going pro
The five-star prospect struggled to live up to expectations, averaging just 8.4 points and 2.5 rebounds. He scored 23 points in his debut against Michigan State, but that wound up being his career high as the Jayhawks finished 26-10 and lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
The 6-foot-5 Grimes is projected to be a fringe-second round pick.
In a statement, Kansas coach Bill Self acknowledged Grimes “went through some highs and lows that, no doubt, will be great preparation for him moving forward.”
