Gregory Elliott has received many offers from schools including, University of Detroit, Cleveland State, Toledo, Rice and Marquette. Elliott has yet to commit to one school. He wants to weigh out his options before committing to ensure he is making the best selection.
Elliott stands at 6-foot-4 and is currently a senior at East English Village Preparatory Academy. He is a guard on the varsity basketball team. He is ranked as the second best guard in Michigan's Public School League and is well known both in and out of school.
But Gregory, who had a 3.3 grade-point average, said he doesn’t really think about all the attention he gets.
“I enjoy playing basketball and aim to get better and better," he said. "That’s all that matters to me."
Elliott has been playing basketball since he was 7 years old. It wasn’t until he was in the sixth grade when he realized he wanted to pursue a career in basketball.
As a sophomore, Elliott was awarded the Detroit Public Schools Player of the Week, Detroit State Athlete and This Month Black Athlete.
Elliott’s Coach Juan Rickman said: “It is a pleasure coaching Gregory. We have a really good coaching relationship. I believe Elliott will be highly successful in five years and will successfully graduate from college, then go on to the professional league.”
Rickman added: “Elliott is a good player that works hard, has a lot of strength and is versatile on the floor.”
Elliott said his No. 1 goal is to be drafted into the NBA.
