Grant Golden: Elite 1 Spotlight Preview

Name: Grant Golden
Class: 2016
School: St. James (Maryland)
Height: 6’10”
AAU: Virginia Elite


Grant Golden is in the midst of an offering frenzy. In the past few months he has received scholarships from Lehigh, Boston, Loyola, Lafayette, High Point, Radford and Quinnipiac. The 6’10” post player has seen his recruitment sky rocket after a strong junior season at Sherando High School. Next year Grant will be playing along side his brother, Bryce, at St. James School. Throughout the summer, the skilled big man will be playing with his AAU team Virginia Elite.

Over the past year, Golden’s game has developed from a back-to-the-basket player, into a consistent mid-range shooter. As he continues to improve look for his range to extend out to the three point line to add another element to his game.

Still, his biggest strength is his knack for rebounding and being in the right spot of the defensive end of the floor. He is a team leader and a heady player that always seems to be effecting the game in some way.

Since his commitment to Hoop Group Elite Session 1 in early June there have been coaches reaching out to the staff, looking to see when and where they can see the rising prospect.
