Just a couple of days have passed since the last commit signed with the Overtime Elite League. On Wednesday, Jazian Gortman, the number two point guard in the 2022 class made the decision to bypass college and join the Overtime Elite League. Today, Bryce Griggs, a 2022 four-star decided to bypass the college route and go straight to professional play.
Bryce Griggs is one of four players from the 2022 class that has committed to play for the new professional league. The Overtime Elite League has had a total of 15 signings since it officially announced its presence as a league. Griggs will skip college and his senior year of high school to pursue his basketball career professionally.
The high school senior had college offers from Baylor, Houston, Texas, Memphis, Kansas, and LSU. Skipping the opportunities with NIL in college, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard told On3’s Joe Tipton that he has a $1.2 million contract with the Overtime Elite League. He also brought up that he would also have chosen either Memphis or Houston if he would have decided to go to college.
Griggs joins some of the notable elite high school players. Some players include 2022 Jazian Gortman, and twins Amen and Ausar Thompson. As well as 2023 five-star, Jalen Lewis, and five-star twins Matt and Ryan Bewley among other players.
