A 5-foot-11 combo-guard from Herriman, LeGrand Burgess is beginning to establish himself as one of Utah’s most promising young prospects.
The sophomore sharpshooter has been getting some nice run with the Mustangs this season, and says that though shooting is his best strength, he’s an adept distributor as well.
“My strengths are 3-point shooting and when I get in there I try and get my teammates open. I like to drive and kick and setting up my teammates,” said LeGrand.
“I need to improve on my defense, just making that a lot better. And so my defense, especially switching on screens and stuff like that.”
LeGrand comes of the bench for Herriman, and says he’ll work this offseason to try and nab a starting spot as a junior.
“It’s been pretty good for me this season, my role is to just come in and shoot the ball, and help get the team into our offense,” said LeGrand.
“I’m going to work this offseason, so I can have a chance to start next season.”
After playing with Exum Elite 15U last spring and summer, LeGrand says he’ll play with someone else this offseason. He’s not sure which team yet.
“I’m just trying to get more exposure. I don’t have any looks right now,” said LeGrand. “I’m hoping to get some small school interest maybe this summer, and then just build my way up from there.”
