DE Jalen Grimble

Recommended Posts

No show at UCLA.

The deal behind this is that the twitter world is saying he will be a hurricane. HOWEVER, I am hearing a lot of whispers of maybe another school having a chance. Whispers from these people are usually 50-50 hit and miss, so I am not taking this one to seriously.

 

There are conflicting rumors going around right now. One is that USC made a late push to keep him in their class. Another is that Miami picked up major ground of late. And another is that he already committed to UCLA silently. Who knows? He and his dad aren't talking. And of course you can't count NU out completely since they had an in-home. I'll let you know if I hear anything confirmed.

This saga is interesting.

 

 

well i dont know why anyone could go to UCLA knowing that RN is gonna be gone soon (writting on the wall with only 8 committ?!!) and no DC... i mean come on now what do people think...

 

 

more importantly what the hell is Owa thinking?? happy with the choice!? well i hope so.... but UCLA is a looong way away from being relevent and U$C isn't dying the slow death that many had predicted (including myself) but i think that prick lick LK will shot himself in the foot soon

USC is eventually gonna start hurting when recruiting sanctions kick in. I know its been talked about in some thread but not sure where. They're still appealing now but I think by next signing dathings will have kicked in and they will wriggle for 3-4 years in recruiting which will eventually lead to struggling to win. I can't wait!

The latest on Jalen:

 

Word is that Grimble is no longer committed to SUC, and will choose between Miami and UCLA. Apparently SUC stopped recruiting him, though that's really hard to believe unless they felt they were out of it.

I feel like something is missing from that. If he wasn't going there, you'd think it's because Xavier was transferring. If they knew that, I feel like they would just pull his offer (which may end up being what's happened). Regardless, I wish we were still in it for him...

It really is not surprising.

 

From what I know, Jalen put on a rather large amount of bad weight, and it showed in his performance. Had a pretty down year at Gorman.

The SC spin is that they simply cooled on him, perhaps due to the reasons you just stated. Outside of SC, however, folks are saying that SC wanted to move Jalen to DT or OL (depending on who you believe) and that Jalen told them to take their schollie and shove it. Lots of buzz about Xavier Grimble considering transferring as well.

The added weight did affect Jalen last year. Everything I have heard said USC wanted him to do it to slide down to the interior. I had heard nothing about moving him to the other side of the ball. However,the DT thing has a lot of weight(no pun intended) to it.

Just heard an update on Jalen, sort of. Basically the reason he didn't trip to UCLA last weekend was due to a miscommunication. Apparently he had a basketball game Friday night. Kind of telling that the Bruins staff could drop the ball on such a simple thing like communicating with a highly touted recruit about an official visit the weekend before signing day.

 

Basically the Grimbles have gone dark and nobody knows where he's headed. It's down to Miami, UCLA, USC, and NU. Sound like NU is on the outside looking in, but I don't think anyone knows if they were able to close the gap with the in-home. We'll find out Wednesday.

Its either Miami or UCLA. Even though he didnt make the trip to UCLA, he has been there beofre and CRN has been pushing him for awhile.

Former USC pledge Jalen Grimble, a four-star defensive end from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman, was supposed to visit UCLA this past weekend but word is he didn't make the trip. Could Nebraska and Washington be two teams involved with him now?

Recruiting has quieted down in recent days. Perhaps its a dead period or perhaps coaches got a commit in peat or grimble and a couple others and are just waiting til nsd. That could be why we cooled so much on other people. Never know ....carter was a commit for a month or better.

I don't think it'll be a huge loss if we don't get this guy. Weight issues, in high school? That shows some real lack of commitment. Would much rather have a lower-rated player who is a hard worker than this guy, unless if he is proving to the coaches that he would be in shape.

 

Phil Dillard made the change, hopefully he can too.

The weight issue is that USC wanted him to pack on more to move down into the interior DLine. It affected his play and quickness. Not 100% sure if it was a lot of bad(fat) weight or muscle mass. He became slower and not near the explosive player he was as a junior. I had heard it was both, but would not be suprised if there was some junk in the trunk weight put on.

 

All that being said, I think he ends up Bruin in the end. I will happily welcome if he chooses NU, but Nueweasel is can spit venom with the best of them. OWA Part Deux. But it makes for great conversation doesn't it?

Hate to be a cynic, but that seems like Rivals pumping sunshine for UDub and NU fans, trying to sell some subs before signing day.

 

Of course, I have no idea, but I bet there's nothing of substance in that article. Just a guess, although Rivals seems to produce less BS stories than Scout.

He has now narrowed it to UCLA and Miami according to MaxPreps

My link

 

With Maxpreps track record, I like our chances.

 

I can honestly say that I know nothing about MaxPreps, but did think they must have some credibility. :lol:

Just goes to show that any one can have a blog.

If you say they are wrong on occasion, I would trust your word over theirs.

FYI, tons of chatter that he's going to pick UCLA. Can't reveal where I'm hearing this since it's a subscription service, but it sounds like it'll be the Bruins. Never a sure thing, but consider NU a very long shot here.

Honestly, unless he's just interested in the academics or location, I would be baffled with this choice. Get trained up under the Pelinis versus working under a staff that probably won't be there in two years and that doesn't even have a DC right now (and the rumored new DC, Rocky Seto, is very much unproven)? How could a DL not pick NU? I was equally baffled with Owa. And this coming from a UCLA alum.

 

Again, this is just what the latest chatter is, not saying this is a done deal.

This Grimble situation makes you scratch your head doesn't it? What makes me wonder about UCLA is that he not only didn't visit them, he in fact cancelled his visit. Surely, even if you have your mind made up you would visit the school even if you plan to commit to them wouldn't you? JP in home visit out of nowhere? Hm....

Not suprise. Figured this is where he would end up. The bigger shock is that he let the cat out of the bag to Rivals, talk about taking the air out of your announcement.

The Miami announcement does surprise me, but you're right about it being really surprising that he told Rivals early. I guess he's not all about the drama, which is refreshing.

 

Time to put the folks on the UCLA boards on suicide watch!

Ehh...they still got Owa a recruiting coup 25x bigger than Grimble. Skippy will get another whipping boy for Owa today
