Greg Harrison is Waiting for his Opportunity with the JBA League


The JBA League finished it’s Texas tour in Houston on yesterday by selecting 7 players for their Houston Ballers team. One of those attendees was current Houston Community College freshman, Greg Harrison II.

Greg was not selected as a member of the team, but was also not completely cut altogether. He was told by the selection committee he may receive a call very soon to be placed on one of the other team’s rosters if a spot(s) come available. He spoke more about the tryout with Fresh Sports Talk.

Why did you decide to try out for the JBA League?

Greg Harrison II: I decided to try out for the league because this is my lifeline. All of the hard work I put in was for opportunities like this. [The JBA League] is a grown man league and the best of the best will make it.

What was the atmosphere like out there yesterday?

The atmosphere was great! There’s a lot of great talent out here in Houston, and people were going head-to-head and that’s what it’s all about!


What’s your take on LaVar Ball and his decision to create the JBA League?

What LaVar is doing is great — he’s changing the game up. He’s letting people chase their dreams and go hard for what they want. College is not for everyone, so if there’s a way to go to the league and make money, why not? He’s making a great decision.

How would you feel about wearing Big Baller Brand in the JBA League?

It’s triple B baby!  I would love to rock the gear. It’s new, it’s fresh, and stylish from head to toe — it’s the triple B way!

Whether or not Greg gets the call or not, it doesn’t appear he’s planning to stop pursuing his dreams. “Nothing is given, everything is earned around here,” said Greg. And when that call comes, it surely will be earned.
