College Basketball News:Guard Grimes to transfer to Houston

Former five-star recruit Quentin Grimes has announced he will be transferring to Houston. Grimes entered the NCAA transfer portal and put his name in the 2019 NBA Draft. It was unlikely Grimes would take his name out of the draft but he did, and ended up choosing a basketball program on the rise in Houston, led by Head Coach Kelvin Sampson. Grimes was ranked number eight in the 2018 ESPN 100 and ranked number two in ESPN’s sit-out transfer rankings (2019-2020 and 2020-2021 transfer rankings). Grimes averaged eight and a half points and two assists in his lone season at Kansas.

The number four ranked player in the 2020 ESPN 100, announced his commitment to Duke on Thursday via Twitter. The top small forward in the class chose Duke over Arizona, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. Johnson, who is from Wisconsin (Nicolet High School) is the second five-star recruit in Duke’s 2020 class, joining point guard Jeremy Roach.

Florida power forward Isaiah Stokes, the younger brother of former Tennessee standout Jarnell Stokes, is transferring after two years of injuries and inconsistency. Stokes leaves Florida after top grad transfer Forward Kerry Blackshear chose the Gators.

Who’s winning the 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year?

Who will be the next NBA Rookie of the Year after 2019’s Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks). This has been one of the most hyped up NBA Draft classes in awhile with the likes of the Pelicans’s Zion Williamson (Forward), Knicks’s RJ Barrett (Guard/Forward), Grizzlies’s Ja Morant, Cavs’s Darius Garland, and many more players.

Zion Williamson,F,Pelicans-Williamson is the obvious pick as the Pels are building around the most hyped-up prospect since LeBron James. Williamson will score his points, get his rebounds, and get his blocks but because players like Guards Jrue Holiday and Lonzo Ball, and Forward Brandon Ingram, Williamson won’t score enough to win rookie of the year.

RJ Barrett,G-F,Knicks-Barrett could get enough production to win rookie of the year. Barrett can score inside and out at both the high school and college levels. Barrett should be able to do the same at the next level and potentially win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year.

Ja Morant,G,Grizzlies-Despite missing out on the summer league due to a surgery on his knee, Morant will have the keys to the Memphis offense in his rookie year, making his case for rookie of the year pretty favorable.

Darius Garland,G,Cavs-Garland is an excellent scorer but playing beside Guard Collin Sexton and former All-Star Forward Kevin Love, Garland won’t have enough production to win the award.

Michael Porter Jr.,F,Nuggets-Porter missed his entire first season in the NBA and injured his knee again in practice. If Porter is able to get back healthy, Porter should be able to compete for the award. Porter, though, is playing with a top center in the NBA in Nikola Jokic, so probably won’t win the award.

Prediction:Morant should win it because of how he will make everyone better and score because of the lack of talent in Memphis.
