Five-star Ohio State commit Trevon Grimes has a torn ACL.


One day after 5-star recruit Trevon Grimes let the public know he’d be okay, we now know the Ohio State commit has a torn ACL in his left knee.

The nation’s No. 3 wide receiver and No. 24 overall player in the 2017 class suffered the injury Friday night when his St. Thomas Aquinas High School team fell to Bishop Gorman High School, 25-24, in triple overtime.

After an x-ray showed no signs of broken bones or fractures, an MRI revealed the torn ACL, according to 247Sports.

Grimes later released a statement on his injury.

“First, I just want to explain to everyone what a fantastic high school football career I have had. All the ups and downs have made me who I am today! I wanna’ thank everyone who has helped get me to where I am today. Sadly, my high school career has been cut short due to an ACL injury. One thing I am certain about is I will be back and stronger than ever, and the man above has a plan for me! Also, I know my team will hold it down for me! [I give] much love to all my supporters. We are in this together.”

Ordinarily, the recovery time for a torn ACL is six to nine months. With Grimes’ injury having been suffered so early in the season, he’s expected to be ready to go in Columbus next fall.

In the loss to Bishop Gorman, Grimes played against future Ohio State teammates 5-star quarterback Tate Martell, 4-star defensive tackle Haskell Garrett and 4-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey.

Lindsey and Grimes committed to Urban Meyer’s team in a joint video in late August.

Adding both of them to the wide receiving corps will help develop a young, talented group of pass catchers. The Buckeyes landed 4-star wide receivers Austin Mack and Binjimen Victor in the 2016 cycle. That was in addition to 4-star tight ends Jake Hausmann, Kierre Hawkins and Luke Farrell.

So, there will be plenty of options to stretch the field vertically next season — especially when Grimes is healthy.

Martell and Grimes are two of the Buckeyes’ five 5-star commits in the 2017 cycle. Ohio State currently has 17 total commits with the No. 1 class in the recruiting rankings.
