A former Ohio State wide receiver and top 50 prospect is transferring to Florida, according to reports.

On Friday, news broke that Trevon Grimes, who was with the Buckeyes last fall and was a member of Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class, would be transferring to Florida for the 2018 season. Grimes left Columbus in the fall due to family health concerns.

Grimes is a Florida native and attended St. Thomas Aquinas.

A member of the 2017 recruiting class, Grimes was ranked as the No. 41 overall prospect and was a top 10 receiver and ranked as the seventh-best player out of Florida. He was a member of a Buckeyes recruiting class that led the B1G.

Grimes played in two games for the Buckeyes, catching three passes for 20 yards. Both of his appearances came in non-conference action, playing against UNLV and Army.

This is a significant addition for new head coach Dan Mullen as he has pieced together his first class with the Gators. Florida currently has the nation’s 15th ranked recruiting class.
