In part 1 we broke the ice on introductions with the Reed Boys from the Chicago area who are making their way through the college and high school ranks and trying to gain respect in the dog eat dog world of sports. All 3 of the boys we are focusing on have high expectations and have been recruited, only to get stifled along the way from coaches and recruiters, according to their father Robert.
First there's Jordan, who's majoring in Business Management at Bethesda University of California. After this season Jordan will have a grad year remaining for eligibility and is interested in Pepperdine or Long Beach as possible landing spots.
The 2019 season has not started well for Bethesda, currently at 2-11 which included a 7 game losing streak to start the season and now they're in the middle of a 4 game losing streak after their 96-51 loss to Pomona-Pitzer last week. They play tonight (Friday, December 13, 2019) at 5pm PT against Cal State Los Angeles.
Jordan has appeared in 12 games, averaging 3 pts/gm and is 6-20 from three point range. His best game of the year so far happened to be the game he got his second most minutes of the season, it was also Bethesda's first win of the year and Jordan had 7 points on 3-8 shooting.
In Part 1 we also introduced Collin, who is a Freshman at JUCO school Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA.
Here's some of his accolades in high school:
While Collin's team is struggling at 4-8, the Freshman Reed is putting together an impressive debut season. Second on the team in points (14.4/gm), first in minutes (23.8) and is 32% from three point range (17-53) and 73.5% from the foul line (50-68).
Collin is presently #35 on the Top 50 Scorers in California JUCO and there's interest from Oakland University, Clemson and Central Michigan University according to dad. He is also Top 5 in Minutes played in all JUCOs in California.
We will take a deeper look into Kobe's high school season in Part 3, however, dad mentions he's got an offer from Sacramento State and there's interest from Creighton & St Johns. Kobe is a 6'3 (and still growing) floor general with high expectations this season. Kobe attends Plainfield East class of 2021 now. Here's a clip from his Downers Grove North 2019 season, first 8 games:
