In the latest installment of the Prep Hoops Idaho Interview series, PHID caught up with Nampa Christian’s Griffin Carson as he filled us in on the season ahead and also shared what he is looking for in a college following his prep career. Carson is a nice sized point guard standing at 6’5, and boasted averages of 16.5 points and 4.0 assists per game last year as a junior. Carson also earned First Team All-Conference honors as a result of his leadership and steady play. Carson will look to make progress in his final prep year as he guides his team to another state tournament bid and perhaps a deeper run than in 2016-2017.
