Is Oliver Gray the next big thing?
Updated: Oct 2, 2022
Gray is considered to be one of the top players in the class of 2026. The 6'3 incoming freshman has a lot of hype surrounding him especially playing summer ball with Mac Irvin Fire and rightfully so. Ive seen Gray score 30 points+ in numerous AAU games, the kid dominates his level and I think he's ready for the next level. Gray has yet to scratch the surface of what he could be, but playing against varsity level guys at SimpsonElite Runs, he's shown a lot of promise. Gray can flat out score the ball at will. The 6'3 freshman has the ability to shoot the ball with the best of them, and that is what separates him from the pack. One thing I noticed at the runs was Gray's frame, he's small but he adjusted very well to the physicality that was thrown at him and he held his own. The guard showed a lot of poise and I was very impressed that he's not easily rattled. Gray is becoming more confident in his ball handling ability and once he start hitting shots off the dribble at the varsity level, its going to be scary for opposing teams. You can find Gray playing summer ball at Limitless and Mac Irvin Fire.
