Nate Grimes, a 6-foot-8 small forward, became the first commitment in Fresno State’s 2015 recruiting class.
“I wanna thank all the schools and coaches that have recruited me it’s been an amazing ride I am truly blessed to have opportunities like this. It’s time to move on to bigger and better things this will lead me one step closer to my dreams. … I would like to say I’m committing to Fresno State to play for Coach Rodney Terry,” Grimes wrote as a caption in an Instagram post on Sunday afternoon.
The Las Vegas native is currently attending Quality Education in North Carolina. He is a three-star prospect, considered the No. 116 overall recruit in the Class of 2015 by Rivals. On Sept. 20, he announced his final seven schools as the Bulldogs beat out Boise State, Iowa, San Francisco, Utah State, Washington State and Wichita State.
After a 21-win season, Fresno State rewarded Terry with a three-year extension this spring. The Bulldogs will have their work cut out for them in the Mountain West Conference this upcoming season, especially with a roster that includes seven freshmen and sophomores (one redshirt) and only one senior. But Terry will have a more experienced team by the time Grimes arrives on campus in the fall of 2015.
