Peyton Brammer is one of the truly elite guards of the 2020 Class in the state of Washington. Standing at 6’4, with a strong build, Brammer uses top-notch athleticism to punish rims and dominate games. I recently caught up with him to discuss this past season and what he sees for his future.
Averaging 22 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, and 3 assists per game for Hockinson High School as a sophomore, Brammer created havoc for opponents all season long. For his efforts, he was named to the 2A GSHL First Team All-League (he was also named to First Team All-League as a Wide Receiver in football, making him the rare athlete that is selected to First Team All-League in two sports in his sophomore year). Brammer utilizes his athleticism and strength to attack and finish in the paint with top-notch effectiveness. As defenses adjust to take away his driving ability, Brammer has the ability to pull-up for the mid-range jump shot, which he also feels is one of his best strengths, and something that sets him apart from other guards.
But Brammer shows more than skill and physicals. When asked what he could bring to a college program, he stated, “Intensity, getting teammates involved, and a good attitude.” His focus on these attributes is evident when he plays, as he displays a level of heart that emphasizes his “do whatever it takes to win” mentality. And his teammates love him. His point guard on the Iron Athletics Sixers, Brad Lackey of Union High School, said, “He’s all about the team, always competes, and he loves to win.” Finally, his work in the classroom cannot be ignored. Brammer has a 3.7 GPA.
This spring, he has been turning heads on both the West and East coasts. On a trip to North Carolina, Brammer showed out, leading the Sixers to a 4-0 record. Watch his highlights from the tournament here:
Performances like he had in North Carolina, as well as his success from this past season, have garnered Brammer plenty of looks from Division I schools. Most of the local Washington and Oregon DI schools have had their eye on Brammer, in addition to Utah, High Point, and Wake Forest. Despite his success thus far, Brammer is not settling. This offseason, he is focusing on the development of his court vision and ball handling, while also strengthening his three-point shot.
