On The Rise: Gray Is On His Way!

Travis Gray (Gym Rats)

Travis Gray of Syracuse, NY proved his worth during the Basketball Spotlight MDC and Future Phenom Camp. His played earned him All Tournament honors at the MDC and being ranked as one of the top performers at the Future Phenom Camp. The lanky wing guard was known for his long range shooting has also added other elements to his game. His coach and trainer Billy Edelin has seen a growth in Gray’s game, “Travis is realizing that he can impact the game with his talent in all areas besides scoring. His leadership qualities are also rapidly improving” said Edelin. 

Edelin’s Gym Rat program has quickly produced some of the top players in the Northern NY area, most recently highly touted Class of 2017 guard Malik Zachery and Class of 2018 guards Charles Pride and Mika Adams-Woods. Gray seems to be the next in line as his potential might have some coaches salivating in the near future. Right he’s ranked #51 in our Class of 2020 but has a strong chance to move it up if he keeps improving. His coach Edelin agrees with my assessment. “Travis has the potential to be one of the best guards in the class long term because of his blend of size, skill and athleticism” He finished. 

Basketball Spotlight will get a good look at Gray and his Gym Rats teammates during the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic December 6th and 7th.
