Grant Greabell Picks Up Offer From Sacramento State

by Justin Vargas | Posted on Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Yesterday evening, Estrella Foothills 6-foot-3 senior guard Grant Greabell got the call he had been waiting for. It was a phone call from a Division I Head Coach asking him to come and play basketball for their University. That phone call would come from Sacramento State Head Coach Brian Katz.

Greabell has definitely earned the attention he is receiving as of late with the season he had for the Wolves. Estrella went 21-7 overall on the season, earning a spot in the 4A State playoff bracket. They would eventually fall in the 2nd round to the eventual State Champions, Shadow Mountain, but had a season to remember.

Pairing with 6-foot-8 junior forward Shaun Wahlstrom, another next level prospect, Greabell averaged nearly 25 points, 6 assists, 8 rebounds and 2 steals per game on the season. He was a sniper from behind the 3-point line, pinning himself one of the top shooters in Arizona. Running point guard all season long, Greabell displayed a good balance of when to get his teammates involved so they would fight for him on the other end of the floor and do the little things to make them successful, and when to take over a game with his scoring ability. He ran a 2-man game with Wahlstrom to perfection at times and battled defensively as tough as anyone I have seen.

There are a few holes in Greabell’s game. His left hand needs to get stronger and his lateral quickness is probably not where it needs to be to guard Division-I guards just yet.  However, he possesses tools that fill those holes.  Not to mention, he is extremely coachable and willing to work on his game for hours in a day. While the upside is limited, he is not the player today that he will be when he walks off campus after 4 years in college. I am close to certain that he will evolve as a player even better than what he is today, which is already pretty darn good.  Add in the fact that he is an exceptional student and comes from a supportive, basketball family, and you have a recipe for success.
