2026 6'2 Nick Keith had a very strong freshman campaign at Grimsley last year, helping his team to a 25-5 overall record.  As a young prospect, he posted averages of 7.9ppg, 2.6rpg, and 2.6apg in 19 minutes of action, playing all 30 games last year. 

But, as the summer came to an end at the Phenom Summer Finale, he was one of the top talked prospects with his showing and we are excited to see what he can do as a sophomore. Grimsley will certainly have a few weapons, but Keith could be the one that rises to the occasion even more, as he will be counted on to step up and be a critical piece with his teammates as a sophomore.

From what we saw on the court, he has the game to back that up. Keith was really able to set the tone and put on a show on several occasions, being a consistently strong scoring presence, creating and making plays, and showing he can either get paint touches or create his own shot.  But he also was doing a strong job in making good reads, pushing the tempo, making strong passes, and elevating his play in showing he can be that dominant force.

This is why he should be a rising sophomore to watch out for, as he certainly put his game on full display with Phenom Hoops even more.
