6'5" freshman PG from Newark, AR playing for Wichita State. Flat out can ball. First time I've seen him and he can shoot and move. Glad to see an Arkansas boy playing in the tourney no matter who's roster he's on (except the ones that play for the blue team...)
He had an offer here but didn't have the grades. Wichita allowed him to commit ahead of making them, so he did.WS got a nice player.
I immediately ran to the box score after reading this post. Thanks for nothing.
The comparison would be with CJ Jones. They play roughly the same position, similar height.
Reminds the coach of Pete Maravich? Let's not set the bar so low for this kid Coach Marshall !!
I like CJ Jones's long term project in our program better.
And I heard CMA mention he reminds him of Jordan...
How did you glean all of this, especially the part where he can shoot, from a game he shot 0/1 from the floor and played four minutes?
Varsity Jordan The one that didn't make the team I guess we aren't going to see CJ again this year. Man, I hope he stays at least one more year.
My understanding, and there has been much discussion about it, is that Reaves did not have the grades to play for us in the SEC but did qualify at Wichita State. Shame, kid can flat out ball.
Nope...GOAT jordan...if Reaves is the reincarnation of Pistol Pete then CJ is a clone of Jordan
NCAA D1 entrance requirements are the same across the board for high school kids. The only difference for SEC is for JUCO kids. Reaves qualified very late in the process.
Word at the high school was he didn't get qualified until after signing day.
That's what I meant by late...We weren't willing to chance it, Wichita St. was. There was some people shocked that he managed to qualify at all.
