Grimble to USC
Sooner fans got some bad recruiting news this week, when Las Vegas Bishop Gorman tight end Xavier Grimble committed to USC. Many had thought that the 4-star prospect was headed to Oklahoma, continuing the Gorman pipeline that has included tailback DeMarco Murray, linebacker Ryan Reynolds, graduate assistant coach David White and defensive end Justin Chaisson (who may or may not make it to campus depending on what transpires in his felony assault trial).
The Sooners will be fine at tight end without Grimble. But the streak of plucking the Catholic school’s annual best prospect is over.
