Today’s Thursday’s Trail column takes a look at the recruitment of Macon, Ga., native Kowacie Reeves Jr.
The Westside-Macon four-star guard has cut his list to six schools and could make a decision soon as announced on his Twitter account.
Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Stanford, and Tennessee all make the final cut for the nationally ranked Rivals Top40 and 247Sports Top100 prospect. Reeves Jr. holds 15+ Division-I offers and is ready to move forward in the recruiting process.
“I have been going through the process for a while now, but things have really slowed down since the coronavirus pandemic hit and I’ve had time to really sit back and process it all. I think I have a pretty good feel for who is seriously interested. My family and I have been talking a lot during this time of quarantine and collectively feel now is a great time to narrow things down and really go to the next phase.”
The 6-foot-6 2021 wing averaged 21.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game this school ball season and is one the top players in the state of Georgia regardless of classification. Reeves Jr. reeled in postseason awards and accolades from varying outlets throughout the state such as Hypesouth Media Mr. Middle Georgia Basketball, Macon Telegraph Middle Georgia Co Player of the Year, Region 4-3A Co Player of the Year, Georgia Athletic Coaches Association 3A-South Player of the Year, HoopSeen 3A Junior of the Year, On the Radar Hoops All Junior Team, and Atlanta Journal Constitution All-State.
