MUSKEGON–Muskegon senior Jordan Briggs will continue his basketball career at Wayne State University.

Briggs signed his national letter of intent on Friday afternoon in a ceremony at Redmond-Potter Gymnasium on the campus of Muskegon High School.

During the 2021-2022 season, as a junior, Briggs averaged 14.1 points per game while dishing out five assists and he grabbed three rebounds per game.

Briggs was instrumental in leading Muskegon to a 20-3 overall record, which included a OK Conference-Green title with a 14-0 record. The Big Reds also won a district championship before falling to Grand Rapids Northview in the regionals.

“This is what it is all about, championships and scholarships,” said Muskegon coach Keith Guy. “I want to thank all of the elementary teachers, the junior high teachers and his (Jordan’s) high school teachers because without their help we would not be here today. I want to thank all the coaches who assisted Jordan along the way.

“I have a lot of respect for Jordan in how he has handled other teams disrespecting us in the past and I am anxious to see what his senior season brings and his future at Wayne State,” said Guy.

Wayne State is a member of the GLIAC (Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference). Currently, the Warriors have a 1-2 record under the direction of first-year coach Bryan Smothers,

Briggs has a GPA 3.7 and has yet to decide on a major. Briggs also is a member of the National Honor Society at Muskegon. Briggs is the son of Carmela Bradford and Michael Bradford.
