Jalen Reeves-Maybin Picks The Vols
August 10, 2012By Jon Hancock of KentuckySports.co
Jalen Reeves-Maybin, son of former UofL basketball star Marques Maybin, committed to the University of Tennessee. Reeves-Maybin had narrowed his list to Georgia Tech, Ole Miss,Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Louisville last month. He currently plays at Northeast High School in Clarksville, TN.
247Sports.com ranked him the 9th best athlete in the 2013 class. The 4-Star recruit plays several different positions including safety, linebacker and some wildcat formation quarterback. Chad Simmons of Scout.com said of him, "Reeves-Maybin is a gifted athlete that put up big numbers on both sides of the ball as a junior. He has played safety and linebacker on defense and Scout projects him as an outside linebacker on the next level. He has a lot of room to grow at that position, but he has all the skills to be very successful there. He can run, he has good size, he is aggressive, he can move in space, and can turn and run with running backs."
