Lets say player A has Avacynian Priest and Stromkirk Patrol from the previous turn. Player B has a tapped Darkthicket Wolf and Spidery Grasp in hand.

Player A is attacking player B with the Patrol. Player B casts Grasp to untap the Wolf and block. Does player A have prioroity to tap Darkthicket Wolf before player B can assign the wolf as a blocker?
Yes.  Combat can't progress to the declare-blockers step until both players pass priority. If one player wants to cast more spells or activate more abilities before letting combat get to the next step, that player can do so.  There is no limit to how many of these actions you can take in a step.
