London Grayson | 2032 | 5’1″ Combo Guard (GA) | Team Huncho
Grayson is a tantalizing young prospect that plays with a feel for the game that is beyond his years. He moves at a different pace than his peers and has an incredible skillset. Grayson does things that you typically would only see at higher levels (high school varsity and beyond). His IQ for the game is advanced. Looking forward to watching him more.

He averaged close to 20 per game at Hardwood Classic while playing up an age group. Grayson’s maturity and skill make him a standout prospect.
