Reaves performs well at Hoop Hall

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Josh Reaves, a 6-foot-5 wing, has shown improvement through out his junior season. He ramped up his effort in a big setting against St. Anthony.

Fairfaix (Va.) Paul VI has over 10 Division-I players on their roster. Players like Marcus Derrickson and injured Franklin Howard have been the two that receive the most attention, but 6-foot-5 wing Josh Reaves is starting to turn it up.

Throughout the season Reaves has been productive for Glenn Farello's crew and on Monday against Jersey City (N.J.) St. Anthony, Reaves stepped up scoring 14 points on 5-for-8 shooting, reeling in nine rebounds and blocking four shots.

"I feel like I'm getting better," Reaves told Scout.com. "Things are just opening up for me. I'm just really grateful for all the things that are happening."

"Coach Farello told me to never stop working and I'm not going to," Reaves added. "Because of him I am where I am. I'm really grateful for him."

Reaves has good size for the wing position and impresses with his athletic ability. He rebounds well from the wing spot, seems to get his hands on a lot of shots and is capable of making a catch and shoot jumper.

What does Reaves think he brings to the table?

"Energy, athleticism, deflections, steals and just whatever I can do to help the team win," he said.

Reaves currently has scholarship offers from Villanova, VCU, Temple and Penn State. He also claims interest from Georgetown, Maryland, George Mason, Cincinnati and USF.

"I've gone on visits to Villanova, VCU, Temple and Penn State," he said. "I've done game visits to Georgetown, George Mason and Maryland."

Reaves is currently rated a three-star prospect on Scout.com.
