Issiah Grayson, a spitfire reserve guard for the Pilots this past season, looks like he’ll visit Virginia Commonwealth after tending to his academics this summer.

He had been destined for another prep school. After the 2007-08 season, Findlay stopped taking post-graduate, or fifth-year, prep players, which meant Grayson would have to find another prep school for next season.

However, the Georgia native, according to Peck, can make substantial progress in school this summer to land at a college next fall.

After the title game in Maryland, Grayson said Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Cincinnati and Stanford were among the schools that were interested in him.

The guy is 5'9" (wasn't this one of the major beefs we had with Joey's game?) and has poor academics -- not sure I can get excited about this.
 
i cant even read his interview and understand 1/2 of what he is saying....
 
Judging from the headline, you can't conclude that these are his words or the writer just can't write.

Joey played his height though, he wasn't all that speedy. Look at players like Nate Robinson for the Knicks, he is freakishly athletic. Joey isn't good enough for his height, because you don't have to be tall to be able to drive and kick, Joey couldn't do that.
 
This kid can flat out get it done...he would easily be the best point guard option out there of all the ones that have been mentioned. I was told he was interested in VCU last week but it looked like that he was going to be a 2010 recruit so i didn't think we would have a chance. This kid would start right away most likely. Findlay is the best school in the country and he was their starting point guard. a coach that knows this kid said he would be a great addition for vcu and would easily solve our point guard dilemma. This could be huge if it pans out...
 
Grayson's solid. He's a top 150 recruit nationally. I think he's the 33rd PG and the 150th player overall in the Rivals 150.
 
To reiterate what DB said, Grayson is a top 150 recruit nationally. Although he is only about 5'10" he is a Point Guard who can score. He has tremendous upside and has played for a couple of the best programs in the country in Findlay and Dunwoody.

If memory serves me correct the previous staff was also looking at Grayson at one time or another.

If things don't work out for 2009 there is always 2010.

"I want to be able to get that extra year and cook me for university.”
No idea what this means either, I think the writer is foreign or dumb, one or the other.
 
If anyone has rivals premium, apparently Grayson did graduate and is a 2009 recruit and very recently visited VCU. I don't have premium, this was posted on our (Spiders) board recently.
 
Thanks for the tip! Here is the quote from the article (though its not much more than what you posted):

Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep guard Isaiah Grayson will not take a post-grad year and has graduated as a 2009 prospect. He is currently visiting VCU.

What planet is this guy from, and can anyone interpret what is being said? Or maybe it is a poor writer. Hard to tell.

Isaiah Grayson, a fast immature combo sentry from Dunwoody High School. Was one of the top players from last holiday’s GBOA South area contest.The 5-foot-10 security has used the spring to prove himself as one of the top scoring point guards in the Peach State. He said he is looking forward to whathim and his Hoop Planet teammates this month.“We’re a good bunch of youthfulbut I think we can get out there and play with the best of them,” Grayson said. “Whenever you play the older guys, you’re untaken to get on the mend. We’re profitable to not be scared. We are available to be a lot tougher.”Hoop Planet will be one of the quite a few teams at the Peach State Summer Showcase in Aiken, S.C. on July 11-13.Grayson said he will expected play at a prep ring in the fall and reclassify to the 2010 class. He said hethe extra year will help get better his edging and magnify hisoptions.“I imagine one of the advantages of me working prep is getting bigger and stronger. I agree my game can strong some more,” Grayson said. “I want to be able to get that extra year and cook me for university.”Clemson, South Carolina, Virginia Commonwealth (offer), Georgia, Georgia State and Florida State are in the mix currently, he said.“I suppose most of the schools will come after me once I go prep,” Grayson said. “I ponder most of the schools know that I’m existing to take extra year.“I want to go somewhere that I can absorb and somewhere that I can play in an up-time pace. I want to play for a tutoring organization that will get after me like I’m forever a freshman.”Heading into the summer, Grayson said there is one college that stands out.“VCU. They’ve stood out the most so far but I’m quiet open for and Harry,” Grayson said.
 
I think it's some kind of code. Probably to avoid NCAA violations. :lol: :lol: :lol:
