AJ Reeves Down to 4

AJ Reeves Closeup

AJ Reeves has long been considered one of the top prospects in the class of 2018, and he narrowed his list to four schools on Wednesday night.

Providence has made the cut, joining Louisville, Villanova, and Virginia for the Brimmer and May product who projects as a top flight scorer at the next level.

The Friars offered Reeves a scholarship in October 2015 and have since had Reeves on campus on a number of occasions. This is a 6’6 top 50 product with considerable upside. went in depth on Reeves in a Closer Look article in April. From the article:

If you were to build a shooting guard from scratch, AJ Reeves would be the prototype. He’s all of 6’6, plays far above the rim, and has developing strength; but the one thing that leaps out when watching him is his jump shot. It’s the jumper that Tom Nelson, Reeves’ head coach at Brimmer and May, raves most about when speaking about his star. 

What stands out the most is his beautiful jump shot. He has great size for the guard/wing position, but has nice lift, a high release, and can score with people all over him,” said Nelson. “This year he faced double teams and more, but he was still able to make shots. When you talk about AJ Reeves the first thing you talk about is his jumper. It is Ray Allen-like — just poetry every time he releases it.” 

Despite double, or triple teams being thrown at him, Reeves scored at will and was named 1st Team All NEPSAC in the ultra-competitive Class AA this past season. He is a four star guard out of Massachusetts who has long been considered one of the top, if not the best, New England prospect in the class of 2018. He has offers from the likes of Providence, Syracuse, UConn, Villanova, Boston College, and Northwestern.


BallasTV released a mixed tape of Reeves last night.
