Adrian Griffin Jr.
Class of 2021
High School: Stepinac
College Level:High Major
Strengths: Fits the prototype physically of an NBA small forward with his 6’7 220 lb frame and strong athletic ability, and he uses his size well to compliment his playing style.Good potential as a two-way wing … Quick with the ball, shifty when changing speed and directions. Beats the defense and reacts to the help defender with athleticism. Gets off the ground well and plays above the rim.Shows the ability to guard larger players and play much bigger than his 6’7 size. Has developed a reputation for being a hard worker and a solid individual.
Room for Improvement:Needs to become more proficient as a ball handler and passer to become a full time wing. Needs to improve body maintenance, low impact with help growth in long run.

Room for Improvement:Lacks ideal size and strength, which will make playing defense a challenge at the next level … He’ll need to focus on getting stronger to play at the next level.He switches too easily on screens rather than fighting to get through them..Needs to improve his fundamental defense.
