As a sophomore at Desert Oasis last season, Felix Reeves was a learner, next season as a junior, he’s poised for a breakout season.
The 6-foot-6 small forward — Nevada’s 11th-ranked 2020 — was starting all season as a sophomore, soaking up knowledge from the older guys while producing on the court with his versatile style of play.
“I was good on defense and a good slasher on offense. Sophomore year was all about learning. Most of our seniors were good leaders and I just needed to learn my role and had to get ready for next year,” said Reeves.
“My role next year is just being a leader, the go-to guy. I’ll be putting my team on my shoulders and making sure I can put us in a good position to win.”
This offseason, Reeves has been playing with one of the area’s best AAU programs, Vegas Elite. He played with the national team in the spring, and will be playing with the EYBL team this summer.
“This summer, hopefully I can just improve a little bit more and get those college coaches calling. And just keep moving forward,” said Reeves.
As for recruitment, it’s been Portland and Utah that have shown initial interest. And he’s been to some Division I elite camps.
“Recruitment goals are just to keep playing well and making college coaches know I’m an all-around player,” said Reeves. “And showing them that I’m not a selfish player, and that I don’t have that much attitude.”
