He Aint No Joke; Bryce Griggs Dominates MSHTV Camps makes Claim for Nations #1 Spot

Byrce Griggs walked into the Middle School Hoops TV Camp with a reputation and is eyeing the #1 spot in the nation in this year’s 2022 ranking.  Watching the Texas native in person we were more than impressed; Griggs is a confident scorer that is in attack mode on both ends of the floor. He is a strong and physical wing that has not met a shot he didn't like or can’t make. 

A shot creator in transition that knows how to get the ball to the rim. A underrated athlete that can get into the lane at will with his craftiness, ball handling ability, and strength that allows him to dribble through contact and draw fouls. Griggs has great command of the ball as he kind of hops or skips when he is attacking off the dribble. He uses the hesitation, between the legs and spin moves to get by his defender. He likes too also bounce into a pull up jumper after one or two dribbles when he gets the defense on its heels with his quick first step. 

Griggs is an exceptional passer and makes excellent reads often seeing plays before the develop because he possesses excellent court vision and IQ. At times he will take chances with the ball by trying to make a great play in traffic and more times than not he is successful – his “highlights” are forced hotdogs plays rather they are fundamental right plays that are executed on a high level with a little flair at times. 

Showed a good three point shoot off the catch or dribble when he is set, we love the elevation, the high release and follows through. Also, Bryce does a great job of using the shot fake to lift his defender at the start and end of drives. Defensively he attacks the ball with active hands and he really works to stay in front of the ball handler in order to cut off scoring drives. Griggs proved to all in attendance that the hype is real and that he is a big time talent that can take his game to the next level when the lights are at its brightest.  He has a very serious, pro like approach to his game, he expects a lot from himself and those on the floor competing with him…he demands it; this demeanor and attitude will surely keep Griggs in the conversation for top player honors for years to come.
