Concordia University in Austin, TX was hopping this weekend with some of the Cen Tex’s most talented teams. The Brazos Valley’s Bryan High was there too. 2011 G J. Mychal Reese averaged close to 30 ppg in leading his squad to an undefeated day. It was here that I caught up with him for a D1 Nation Real Talk session.

With the advent of scouting services stating opinions on players from the time they are stepping out of the cradle, perhaps no other player has received so much scrutiny as J. Mychal Reese. Accurately touted by Clark Francis of Hoop Scoop as the #1 player in the United States from the 4th to the 8th grade must be quite a burden for a youngster to bear, but I’ve never seen Young Reese sweat. Both he and his family maintained a grounded approach to the game and all the hoopla surrounding it. Everyone gives J. Mychal their best shot, and he keeps on moving forward. I fully expect him to meet all his goals. We are proud to claim his as a D1 Ambassadors alumni.-Coach Max Ivany
