Alabama commitment and Team Trae Young star Rylan Griffen is wrapping up his senior season at Richardson High School and as top-ranked Richardson gets set to make a state championship run, Rylan is raking in the accolades.
During a recent win over rival Pearce that improved the Eagles to 27-1 on the season, Rylan passed the 2,000-point mark for his high school career, a rare feat.

Rylan is on a mission before heading off to join the Crimson Tide, to bring his school a state championship. Richardson hasn’t lost since dropping a game to North Little Rock back in early December. After beating former No. 1 Duncanville in the Whataburger Tournament, Richardson ascended to the top spot in the nation, as ranked by Max Preps and has mowed through every district opponent in front of them en route to the state playoffs.
Now they will attempt to dethrone two-time defending champion Duncanville, featuring Team Trae Young’s Cam Barnes. The teams met in the state semi-finals last year, a game Duncanville won 68-49. This year, they’re on opposite sides of the bracket, meaning a showdown could only happen in the state title game.
