Oak Hills junior combo forward Glenn Bryant has been shooting up the recruiting rankings lately, drawing interest from schools such as Memphis, Florida, Florida State, Michigan State, Ohio Stateindeed drawing Memphis head coach John Calipari courtside (right next to us) to take in his game.
Its pretty easy to see why college coaches like him. Bryant is a super athletic forward with a terrific motorlong, active, strong, with a nice frame that should fill out in time. He gets most of his production off sheer hustle and aggressiveness, running the floor in transition, hitting the offensive glass, cutting to the basket for a catch and finish, etc.
He competes extremely hard on the glass, going after rebounds out of his area and then finishing strong above the rim once he gets his hands on the ball. He also has excellent timing to block shots, both on the ball in the post or on the perimeter, or even coming from the weak-side.
Facing the hoop, Bryant has average ball-handling skills, but is quick and aggressive enough to put the ball on the floor in strong fashion and make his way to the rim. His perimeter skills look extremely raw at the moment (he didnt attempt any jump-shots), so he has some work ahead of him if hes to reach his full potential and make the transition to playing the small forward positionwhich seems pretty far away at the moment.
Still, you have to like what he brings in terms of toughness, activity and sheer athleticism, traits that can come in extremely handy to any college coach looking for a role player.
