WALTERBORO, S.C. – Dynamic guard Grayson Kirk from Lancaster, S.C., becomes the seventh member of the Salkehatchie program under Head Coach Matt Lynch.
Kirk, a 6-foot, 2-inch, 168-pound guard, played for Coach Jerron Cauthen at Lancaster High School. Under Coach Cauthen's leadership, Lancaster went 28-4 and was the South Carolina Upper State Champions. Kirk averaged 15.5 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals per game.
"Grayson is family. We immediately connected during the recruiting process, and I am excited to help this young man chase his dreams," said Lynch. "When Grayson is playing with confidence, he's as good as any guard in the state. Lancaster is a program that is built upon the principles of trust and belief, and Coach Cauthen has built a culture that I will look to duplicate at Salk. Grayson has phenomenal court vision to go along with an enticing offensive game. Our main focus will be to help him develop into a more consistent defender."
"Grayson has been a tremendous asset to the Lancaster Basketball program for four years," said Coach Cauthen. "His impact will last for years, and I look forward to seeing his influence and development at USC Salkehatchie. Coach Lynch got a good one."
Kirk will pursue a degree in Business Management.
