With many of Arizona's top-rated prospects now off the table after committing to college programs, one of the elite prospects in the class is Westview High School's talented and physically gifted 5-foot-10, 160-pound rising senior guard/forward Saylair Grandon. Grandon is coming off another terrific high school season - leading her team to a 26-7 overall record on the season. This skilled prospect is now tearing it up on the summer club circuit and has become one of the toughest girl prospects to defend.
Grandon averaged 11.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 3.9 steals per/game this high school season and was among the most difficult prospects to guard, although she sacrificed her personal stats for the success of her teammates. She is always that person and is an excellent teammate and a winner.
This spring and summer, once again, Grandon has led her club program, Team Bibby Girlz, to a strong performance this club season. I have observed her several times this off-season and has been very impressed with her ability to take over games on both ends of the floor- making her a two-way performer. Grandon has quiety had one of the best spring and summer performances in the state - regardless of class.
Grandon is a physical player with a college-ready body. Her physical build and ability to overpower defenders is a tremendous attribute for her. She is a deadly shooter with range on her shot and a quick release. She also has a good mid-range game and is able to score effectively off the dribble. Grandon is also a good ball handler and passer that sees the floor and is a willing passer. She is a complete player.
Grandon is also a very good defender and has excellent court anticipation that allows her to play passing lanes. She is a good on-the-ball defender as well. This prospect is worthy of serious high-major division-I attention.
While it is still unclear as to where she will land for college, I will look to catch up with her very soon to bring you an update on Grandon's recruitment. This is definitely one of the top sleeper prospects in the West.
