Early life

Grayson Scott Boucher was born in Keizer, Oregon, USA, on 10th June 1984 to Steve Boucher (Father) and Molly Boucher (Mother). He grew up at his birthplace with his brother Derrick Boucher.


At two, his father introduced him to basketball, and by the time Grayson was in fourth grade, he was obsessed with it. He caught the eye of many locally with his mind-boggling ball-handling skills.


Grayson went to McNary High School before transferring to Salem Academy. At Salem Academy, The Professor played high school basketball, where he made all-state.


Surprisingly, despite that, after graduating from high school, Grayson never received any college scholarship offers. As a result, he attempted to “walk on” at multiple community colleges, but he did not prosper.


Luckily, he joined Chemeketa Community College and began exploring himself by playing street basketball, which led to a professional career. He became known as the Professor. The nickname originated from a journalist who noticed Grayson always had his glasses on while playing basketball.

He appeared on their website and was cast in multiple tour ads. Furthermore, He was also featured in an AND1 video game.


Joining Ball Up Tour 

In 2008, when The Professor was still a part of the AND1 Mixtape Tour, he got acquainted with Demetrius Spencer, the CEO of Ball Up Tour at the time.


And in 2011, after the AND1 Mixtape Tour ended, the two’s meeting proved vital in Boucher’s career. He joined Ball Up Tour, which, contrary to focusing on “behind the scenes, action” like the AND1 Mixtape tour, focused on “on the court” action. He went on to visit ten countries with the Ball Up Tour.
