Griz recruit: Troy Huff


troy huffOne of the kids that were at the Griz had at their July camp was 6-4 Troy Huff of Brookfield Academy in Wisconsin. The picture here is about a year and a half old and from what I saw he appears to have matured a little, but if he was not 6-4 I would bet he could still get into a movie theater for kids prices. From what I can tell physically Huff is a late bloomer. As a freshman he was listed at 5-9 as a sophomore 6-2, and for his junior year he was listed at 6-4, and that seems to where he is at now so he may now start filling out.

While Huff physically may be a late bloomer, he has been a major contributor at the point guard spot for Brookfield Academy since his freshman year. He became a regular starter as a sophomore and average 17 points and 4 rebounds a game. He duplicated his point average his junior year but increased his rebounding to 7 rebounds, and also dished out 3 assist a game as Brookfield Academy finished 10-12 with an extremely young team. He earned second-team all-league honors in the Southern Division of the Midwest Classic Conference

While playing the point guard spot in high school most of the national recruiting sites project him to be shooting guard in college, not all of the local Wisconsin experts agree. He is ranked as a two star prospect by both Rivals and Scout and is currently ranked No. 24 among state players in the Wishoops.net Player Rankings.

Here is a quote from his high school coach right after Brookfield Academy season ended this winter.troy huff2

“Troy’s development in the last month and a half has been phenomenal,” Von Rueden said. “He’s put our team on his back and in the right way. He’s been a leader. He’s demonstrated that the team comes first. In the last seven games, he’s averaged 23 points per game. He’s been so valuable for us as our overall best player.

“He’s got great athletic ability and he has a great feel for the open floor. He’s really matured. He’s on the right path. I’m anxious to see where we go from here with him.”

Here Scout.com’s evaluation on Huff this past May

Troy Huff, SG, Playground Elite- Scout.com’s first look at this crafty and productive off guard was a good one. A slender winger who can attack off the dribble, shoot from deep or make plays in transition, Huff was all over the floor. While he isn’t particularly great in any one area, he’s strong in all of them and finds ways to make winning plays on both ends of the floor. He shoots the ball, plays hard and is a willing defender so there’s lots to like.

While receiving a lot of interest from college programs, Montana is the only program so fat to extend an offer, which they did at their camp. Among the schools that are also actively recruiting Huff are North Dakota, Marquette, Arizona State, Stanford and Northern Illinois. While camping at a University does not guarantee any thing it does show a great deal of interest in a kid for that program, especially if they are traveling pretty good distances to get there.

    Ive seen Troy play, he is definitely a high major…signing with a program like Stanford would be ideal… I think Troy is 6’5… great player!
