Hoopster on the gridiron

Forgot to mention this a few times, but I will now. UCLA basketball commit Reeves Nelson, a power forward out of Modesto Christrian High, went out for the football team. From what I’ve heard, he is a tight end/defensive end.

    he’s a 5-star recruit for basketball.. if he had to try out for the football team, i don’t think there’s much threat of him choosing a walk-on role over a spot on the starting 5.

    college is a time for experimentation, is it not?

    Howland LOVES physical players. Good luck Reeves.

    he meant at his high school, considering that he is a high school senior right now.

    Has Reeves played football in HS previously? I’m a little nervous he’s trying the Tony Gonzalez route much less playing both ways…
