Grady (6-foot-9, 215-pounds) talked with WV Sports Now and expressed his reaction to receiving an offer from WVU.
“I’m beyond grateful to have received an offer from West Virginia,” he told WV Sports Now. “Having such a legendary coach like Bobby Huggins to have interest in me is an amazing feeling.”
Grady will be entering his junior season of basketball this year at Coronado High School, located in Nevada. As a freshman, Grady averaged 5.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20 games.
“The best word that describes my playing style is ‘versatile.’ I’m able to guard one through five, block shots, rebound and can score inside and out,” Grady said. “I’ll have to say that my biggest skill set is having a high motor, my passing ability and most of all being able to defend any teams best player.

What can Grady bring to a team?
“I’m an extreme competitor,” Grady said. “I will always do what it takes to make my team better and get the win. I don’t think there’s anybody else in the class of 2023 that competes harder than me and that’s something nobody can take away from me.”
Grady seems determined to prove his worth in the Class of 2023. With his 12th offer by a Division I school, Grady is starting to rack up great offers such as Cal, Nevada, New Mexico, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, UNLV, USC, Washington State and West Virginia.
As Grady looks to begin his junior season on Dec. 4, the forward from Nevada will continue to impress recruiters all around the country.
