After a solid campaign as the starting point guard last season as a freshman for Gerstell Academy, it would seem colleges would be tracking 6-foot point guard Will Reed.
But still, he has received no contact from any programs, in any capacity.
“I haven’t gotten anything yet,” said Reed. “It really doesn’t surprise me, my father says it’s a long process and it might take a while to start up in the beginning.”
The talented 2018 spent his offseason playing with Baltimore’s Finest, and says setting up his teammates for success is what he did best.
“I thought I excelled at being a floor general and helping my teammates get in the right spot and set them up when they’re there. I think I got better at finishing inside when attacking bigger people, especially along the baseline,” said the 6-foot point guard, who defined his style of play to PHM.
“My strengths are ball-handling and setting up buckets for other people, and I can get a little flashy every once in awhile. I still need to work on finishing around the rim against bigger competition, I’ve been working on floaters in the lane and bank shots.
Last season as a freshman with the Falcons, Reed says he averaged 15 points and 5 assists per game. This season he says he will be able to boost his assist numbers.
“Last year we didn’t have as much scoring and I was the primary scorer,” he said. “But this year we had a bunch of new kids transfer in so I can play my normal style and just distribute the ball, and get shots up when I need to.”
