Reeves-Maybin Adds Two More Offers

Louisville and Purdue are the latest schools to offer a scholarship to athlete Jalen Reeves-Maybin from Northeast High School in Clarksville, Tenn.

The offer from Louisville could have a more significant meaning. Reeves-Maybin’s father, Marques Maybin, was a standout basketball player at Louisville from 1997-01.

“It’s great to have that offer on board,” Reeves-Maybin told MrSEC.

Reeves-Maybin said his father has a strong connection to his alma mater but hasn’t tried to influence his son to follow in his footsteps.

“He doesn’t pressure me to go anywhere,” Reeves-Maybin said. “It would be good to follow a legacy but I have to make sure I find the right situation for me and my family.”

Reeves-Maybin has nine offers, including Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. He said he plans to visit Georgia Tech in March and will make a return trip to Tennessee in the near future.

Reeves-Maybin, who visited Tennessee in January, has developed a strong relationship with the Vols’ coaching staff.

“I talk to them quite a bit,” Reeves-Maybin said. “I like Tennessee a lot. I like all the coaches there.”
