The Junior Introduction brings some of the nation’s premier underclassmen into focus from the development of their games to a snapshot of the recruiting process.
Seventh grade is the first time the ProspectsNation staff had the chance to watch Honesty Scott-Grayson play live. At that point the young prospect showed tremendous promise and forced evaluators to consider her among the top 2018 prospects, nationally. As she has matured and progressed through the prep ranks, Scott-Grayson has kept the honor of being one of, if not the, best point guards in the 2018 class. Her athletic ability, savvy on the ball and smarts as a playmaker have separated her on the national scene.
An elite talent for a middle school aged prospect. Played for the high school team here and more than held her own. Has the ability to score it at all three levels and plays with a tremendous amount of poise. Could develop into quite the scoring guard down the road. --(4-21-13 @ The Mecca - New York, N.Y.)
What They Are Saying
“For some time she has been acknowleged as one of the top talents in the 2018 class, but her sense of the moment I thought set her apart this summer,” Chris Hansen, managing editor of ProspectsNation.com. “She wants the ball at the end of a close game. She hit a game-winner at Summer Invitational, at the buzzer, and you could feel the moment build to it. She was up for the challenge.”
“The nation's top point guard continues to produce on the biggest stages. What I saw from Honesty Scott-Grayson at the PSB Summer Invitational is a floor general who is doing a great job of blending play making for herself and others. She has the talent to make a play every time down the floor, however she understands the value of letting her teammates do the heavy lifting at times. Her maturity while playing on the EYBL circuit keeps her as a top 5 prospect nationally regardless of position.” – Johnathan Hemingway
For The Next Level
In the next couple of years, it will be important for Scott-Grayson to become more of a vocal leader as a point guard. She has the talent and her awareness of the game that would lead one to believe she is capable of being an extension of the coach on the floor. As she continues to grow through the prep ranks, her ability to be a positive influence on her team while still finding ways to playmaker for herself and others will separate her even more from the pack.
In August, Scott-Grayson released a list of 14 schools in alphabetical order that list was, Baylor, Duke, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, UConn, and West Virginia.
