REPORT: West Seattle’s Grymes decommits

West Seattle defensive back Aaron Grymes says he will no longer sign with UW after being asked to greyshirt, and will instead sign with Idaho, according to a report today from RealDawg.com.
Greyshirting is when players are asked to delay enrolling for a year, preserving a year of eligibility but also, obviously, delaying the start of their college career.
Sounds as if that’s something Grymes didn’t want to do.
“They wanted to grey shirt me and they talked to my mom about it — instead of redshirting me,” Grymes told RealDawg. “I told the coaches thank you for honoring my scholarship but I didn’t feel that it was going to work out.”
He told the web site he has instead committed to Idaho, where he can enroll next fall.
Grymes was one of just three Washington-bred players who had committed to UW. He committed last August to the staff of former coach Tyrone Willingham.
This leaves with UW with what are 14 firm commitments for the Class of 2009.
The only two other in-state players now regarded as commits are Federal Way High LB Andru Pulu and Wilson High cornerback Desmond Trufant.
