North Carolina cornerback Tony Grimes, a former five-star recruit and three-year starter for the Tar Heels, announced Monday he will transfer.
"Thank you Tar Heel family for all the love and support these past three years," Grimes wrote in a social media post. "After many prayers, and further discussion with family and friends, I have decided to enter the transfer portal to further pursue my football career and goals."
Grimes, a 6-foot, 195-pound corner from Virginia Beach, was the No. 1 cornerback recruit in the Class of 2021, per the 247Sports composite rankings, before he reclassified to 2020.
Grimes made four starts as a true freshman in 2020 before becoming a full-time starter in 2021.
In 32 games over three seasons in Chapel Hill, Hill has tallied 19 pass breakups and 97 tackles with one interception and one sack.
