Roadrunners basketball adds three

State Fair Community College Roadrunners basketball Head Coach Matt Brown has announced the addition of Grant Gelon, Colby Honeycutt and Tyreek Scott-Grayson to the Roadrunners 2017-2018 recruiting class.

Gelon is a 6'5'' guard/forward who played his freshman season at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he played in 12 games. He played for Head Coach Clint Swan at Crown Point High School in Indiana and averaged 14 points per game during his senior year and was selected to the Indiana All-Stars. He also played for the Indiana Elite AAU program under Coach Jeff Moore. 

"Grant will help us with his ability to shoot the basketball," said Brown. "He shot over 43 percent from beyond the three-point line as a senior in high school. I think we are going to be a good shooting team. Grant is a hard worker, and he understands how to play and will fit in well with the other players in our program."

Honeycutt is a 6'7'' forward who comes to SFCC from Butler Community College in Kansas where he was a redshirt last season. He played high school basketball at Lake Ridge High School in Texas. The Mansfield, Texas native averaged 12 points and six rebounds per game as a senior. He was named second-team all-district his senior year.

"I like the toughness that Colby will bring to our team," said Brown. "He will help us with rebounding and his ability to shoot the basketball."

Scott-Grayson is a 6'5'' guard/forward who played basketball at Suffield Academy in Suffield, Connecticut. He averaged 16 points per game as a senior and pulled down 7.2 rebounds, three assists and two steals per contest. Scott-Grayson was a team captain in 2016-2017 and earned first team All-New England Class A in 2017 from the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council. He helped his team to a runner-up finish in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Class A Championship.

"Tyreek is a really good passer who understands how to play," said Brown. "He has excellent basketball IQ and is someone we can move around and play at several different positions. He is a long and athletic left-handed player who will be a good fit for us."
