A native of Fairfax, Va., Grimes attended Paul VI Catholic High School where he was honored as the All-South Jersey Running Back of the Year in 2007.  He rushed for a single-season school record 1,925 yards and 33 touchdowns as a senior.  He also lettered in basketball and track.

Grimes will wear jersey number 43.
