Tony Grimes, a former five-star cornerback and All-ACC honorable mention player at North Carolina, announced Thursday that he will transfer to Texas A&M.

Grimes reclassified from the 2021 class to 2020 to play early at UNC. He appeared in 37 games over the past three seasons.

The 6-foot player from Virginia earned All-ACC honorable mention in 2021.

He started all 13 games this season, registering 36 tackles and seven pass breakups.

Grimes will provide much-needed depth for the Aggies, who have lost four cornerbacks to the transfer portal in recent months, including freshmen and former four-stars Smoke Bouie and Denver Harris.
