Daily Dawg Thread 17 June 2020: Recruiting update on Tony Grimes

Princess Anne High School 2021 defensive back Tony Grimes has been one of the prospective student-athletes that eyes have been on of late due to the fact that he might reclassify for 2020. That was hinging on whether or not the state of Virginia would hold a high school football season this fall due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

On Tuesday, DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell spoke with Grimes’ father Deon Glover who stated:

“This past Friday, we received word that the [Virginia High School League] would be moving forward with Virginia Sports,” his father Deon Glover said. “With that in light, Tony will stay and play his final high school season.”
