|Grant Huffman-6'1 SG 2020|
So far this middle school season, Huffman is the leading scorer on his 10-2 middle school team, is averaging 20 points per game, and has to his credit a season-high of 27 points. During the spring and summer, Huffman runs with Malcolm Walters’ King James Shooting Stars squad, where he is one of the team’s leading scorers and key pieces. That’s not all, according to Walters; Huffman is a lock down defender. “He is the best defender on our team,” Walters said. Walters is clearly a fan of Huffman’s on-court play; however, he is even a bigger fan of Huffman’s character. “He’s a great kid; the kind of kid that if I had a daughter, I would want him [Huffman] to date her,” Walters said.
We’ve seen Huffman ball on the summer circuit as well as our Buckeye Prep Elite Showcases, where his outstanding play has solidified him as an all-star and MVP. In terms of his game, Huffman is highly skilled, shoots the ball extremely well, and is deceptively athletic. He also posses the ability to play multiple positions, has a high IQ and an elite motor. “He can play th 1, 2 or 2, but he plays the 2 for me because he can score,” continued Walters.
In the near future, Huffman is heavily considering attending the Cleveland area’s St Edwards High School. More long term, he plans to attend college, where he hopes to major in dermatology and on day become a Dermatologist. Huffman not only posses many of the skills needed to play D-I basketball, he is also genetically gifted, as his mother is 6’1” and ran college track while his father is 6’5” and played college basketball as well. By the end of the season, Huffman is well positioned to win several Buckeye prep-related awards, including a coveted invitation to the prestigious Ohio North vs South All-Star Game.
