Macomb Dakota's Bryant To Oak Hill Academy

Macomb, MI.- Glenn Bryant, one of Michigan's top players from the '09 class decided with his family that he will attend Oak Hill Academy after emerging on the high school scene last season as a sophomore. He averaged a near double (14 ppg and 9 rebounds) accompanied with 6+ blocks per game for Macomb Dakota based in the northeastern suburbs of Detroit.

The 6'6 small forward plays AAU for the King of the Court 16u and Michigan Select 16u and is most noted as of now for his tremendous leaping ability, timing, and length. His ability to ‘Go up and get it', as some might say, is off the charts. Bryant is near automatic from ten feet and his high release makes and rise make his shot difficult to defend.

The high flyer was monumental in the Michigan Selects recent 16u Silver Championship in a USSSA event at the Spiece Sporstplex in Ft. Wayne, IN.

Bryant received a following of coaches representing established programs such as Michigan State and Syracuse as he averaged near 20 points a game and showcased his athleticism.

Oak Hill's newest addition has the potential to be one of the nation's best. Bryant still has plenty to work to do in the gym as his ball handling, strength, and perimeter shooting are weaknesses, as of now.

He's strongest in the open court where he can showcase his athleticism as was the case in AAU basketball. The high flyer can also play in a slower tempo as he did under head coach Bill Snyder at Macomb Dakota but, Snyder realized what an athletic talent he had and designed plays for Bryant that often ended in freakish alley-oops from Jimmy Stallons who will be a freshman quarterback for the University of Wisconsin this fall.

In talking with Bryant's father, "a year ago, he (Glenn) was a virtual unknown."

The Academy is based in Virginia and has a who's who of alumni throughout the basketball ranks.

Bryant is the third Michigan player in the past four years to attend Oak Hill following Syracuse junior point guard Eric Devendorf '05 and Kentucky freshman guard Alex Legion '07.
