Griz Basketball commit: Jordan Gregory


Last week it hit the internet that Pueblo East high school star Jordan Gregory had committed to Montana and have finally gotten enough time to do a little update on Mr. Gregory. When I heard that the grizzlies were recruiting him and had invited him in on an official visit for the Griz Home Coming week end I did profile on him that can be found here. I am not going to repeat what I have already posted their but add to what I have learned since he committed.

I talked to a few friends of mine and no one really claimed to have seen him a lot but, but from what I have gleamed he really sounds like a player very similar to Grizzly freshman Vaughn Autry. At 6-2 he physically has a mature body and a strong frame and knows how to use it. He is a terrific scorer (their is some conflicting published accounts of his scoring average last year of 19 points or 24 points a game), but not a great shooter. At the point guard spot he is a terrific passer and passes well in traffic, but his ball handling skills some feel need to be improved to play the position at the D-1 level. All of that said many feel he is a work in progress and has made great strides the past year or so and could be an absolute steal for the Griz if he keeps improving like he has over the 12-18 months.

Gregory had offers on the table from Northeastern, Northern Arizona, Denver as well as Montana, but had quite a few schools like Colorado and Colorado State (among others) who wanted him to wait until the spring to sign so they could check out his game this winter. He took an official visit to Denver the week end of September 16-17th. He had in home visits Northeastern, Northern Arizona and Denver just days before he visited Montana (September 24-25). He committed to the Griz almost immediately after arriving back home. He was scheduled to visit Northern Arizona this past week end but canceled it and told Northeastern that he would not be visiting them (they were in the process of arranging the date). Gregory liked what he saw in Missoula and pulled the trigger.

ESPN recently updated its Profile on Gregory and gave him a rating of 85 and two stars (something new they are doing) and gave him an over all position rank at the point guard position of 91st in the country. Here is their evaluation

Strengths:
Gregory is one of the best lead guards in the state. He is a savvy floor general who does a great job of scoring from all three levels and getting his teammates involved in the games as well. He has a college ready body right now and is a great leader and tremendous defender.

Weaknesses:
Improving his stroke from behind the arc should be his main priority this season. Also, continuing to develop his lead guard skills will be important before he reaches the next level.

Bottom Line:
He should be a steal for the mid-major school that lands him. Heading into his senior season, he is the clear leader to be named Mr. Basketball in Colorado.
Notes

Travel Team: Colorado Chaos

Notes: Led the state of Colorado in scoring as a junior (24.0 ppg)…Committed to Montana in Sept. 2010
