He just finished eighth-grade, stands 6-foot-4, weights 185 pounds and has been featured on several social media outlets dunking. 

Rayvon Griffith, who attended eighth-grade at Oyler, is now at Hughes High School, two months away from attending class with the other Big Red freshmen.

Saturday, he was extended his first college basketball offer from Kent State.

Hughes coach Bryan Wyant had the Big Red at Ohio State Friday and Kent State Saturday for team camps. Rob Senderoff's Golden Flashes saw enough Saturday to extend Griffith his first of what should be many offers.

Though statistics aren't made public in junior high games, Griffith reportedly averaged over 30 points per game and around seven rebounds, playing all over the floor for Oyler.

He's played recent summers with the son of LeBron James (Bronny) and even recreated LeBron's "Decision" (leaving Cleveland for Miami in 2010) via YouTube when he announced his intentions to play and attend Hughes.

Griffith could fill the shoes of guard Paul McMillan who played as a freshman at Hughes (18-5) last season but now has transferred to Woodward who was 3-20 a year ago. McMillan averaged 24.7 points per game last season and was Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference Player of the Year for Coach of the Year Wyant at Hughes. He's also been offered by the University of Cincinnati and Xavier and like Griffith, will likely have many more.
