Stoke on Trent College student and Hoop Skills Baller Jani Griffith is USA bound after committing to Sheridan College for the 2017/2018 season.
Jani will make history, as he becomes the first basketball player to receive a full scholarship from the College.
Jani is the second Hoops Skills player to sign this year as his former teammate Boban Jacdonmi signed on to play at Southern Mississippi earlier this year.
Jani who started playing basketball at the late age of 16 has been working on achieving his goal of playing in the United States and now that time has finally come.
“Hoop Skills has helped me develop my basketball game and has instilled some very life changing mentorship and for that I’m very grateful,” said Jani.
“I would like to thank my Dad and Mom for believing in me and also my Hoop Skills teammates.”
Stoke on Trent College head of basketball, former Harlem Globetrotter Shawn Jamison, has coached Jani since the age of 16. ” Sometimes when you are coaching you will run across a player that will bring the best out of you as a coach, Jani has made me a better coach and for that I am grateful.
We here at Hoop Skills Basketball would like to Thank ML Elite Coaching and Diamonds n The Ruff for their support throughout the recruitment process.”
