Hard work never goes unnoticed. Grant Fuson is a prime example of that. The solid 6-foot-5, 210-pound forward from Lake Oswego may not put up the biggest statistics game and game out, but he puts in the time, plays hard, and does all the little things that count in the end.
Fuson has been playing this spring with the Nike Team Northwest Team Knight squad and it’s been a nice experience thus far. “It’s been good as we’ve been playing in some of the better tournaments and we’re still trying to get it all together,” Fuson said. “I’ve been doing pretty well. I’ve been taking good shots and sharing the ball, setting screens. I’m the glue guy.”
At The Hoop Memorial Day Classic, Fuson did exactly that for NWTH Team Knight. It’s been a bit of a welcome adjustment for him as his role is different with his high school team. “At LO, I’m mostly a post,” Fuson said. “It’s been good this summer as I’m trying to be more of an all-around player.”
Fuson has started getting noticed by some college programs. He notes that he will be attending elite camp at Cal Lutheran this summer and he’s visited the school in the past. He’s also visited Whitter as well. “I’ve checked out their campuses and they were really good,” Fuson said. “I’m looking for a similar type school – a small school that can help me become an entrepreneur. I’m definitely looking for a school that has a good business program.”
College recruiting will have to wait as Fuson has a full summer left to play both with Lake Oswego in June and with Nike Team Northwest in July. “The rest of the summer I’m definitely working on getting stronger,” Fuson said. “I really want to get more explosive. And I want to keep working on my shot.”
