    Looked him up and found a video link here:

    For as young as he is he looks like a nice scoring guard.

    My ex-coworker is the assistant at B & M and gushed about him. Needless to say, I laid some heavy groundwork.

    It might be a product of the system/coaching staff, but when he makes a 3 or a dunk, he turns around and heads for the defensive end of the court without any posing, posturing, flexing or chest bumping. I kinda like that.

    Absolutely. And beyond just being teammates, he and MAL are extremely close friends for what it's worth.

    Looks like he has good size/length? Nice stroke too.

    Don't claim to know anything about this kind of stuff, but I'd have to imagine we'd only be able to get at most 2 of Diallo, MAL, and Reeves right?

    Theoretically could get all three. Diallo and MAL are 2017. The hard part would be getting (either really) both of them. Many think Diallo is one and done. Reeves could fill in after Diallo leaves. Not to mention Adams may leave early by the time Reeves would come in. So theoretically if UConn gets both Diallo and MAL in 2017 UConn would only have Gilbert, MAL and Vital at guard when Reeves comes in as a freshman in 2018. Of course who knows how 2017 ends up.

    It's an inside joke. VCU fans claim that we eventually offer any/everybody they're trying to recruit (much to their chagrin). Over the past several years, Louisville has come to offer a number of guys that we've been recruiting.

    gotcha...thought it had to be something along those lines, but brain is working a little slow tonight and didn't quite make the leap to that

    sorry silk for making matrim explain, and ruining your joke. I'll sit quietly confused in the corner next time

    My reading comprehension skills are a little low apparently, I read this and thought he was a 2017 recruit. That makes a lot more sense

    Title tag says 2017, but I'm pretty sure Reeves is 2018. I could be wrong though, I'm not aware of him reclassifying. @tcf15 I think you can adjust the tag, not sure who is a mod, unless he really is a 2017 now.

    I just saw a Rivals article that has him at 2018.
