There was a report earlier today that UNLV guard Katin Reinhardt transferred to USC. Reinhardt denied it but USC is the frontrunner.
But again, if he picks USC, I want to hear Andy Enfield answer one question: What point guards in the Pac-12 can Reinhardt defend?
Here’s CBS basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb: “Having called eight UNLV games this year, I can tell you he’s not a point guard.”
Matt Barkley is back at practice with the Eagles this morning and working with the No. 3 offense. Michael Vick and Nivk Foles are sharing snaps with the first team.
On another note, here’s a story from the New York Post about a teen-ager who is from a Hurricane Sandy-stricken Brooklyn housing project who earned a full scholarship to USC.
I forgot to mention how shocked everyone must be that a Mater Dei player is leaving his original college. I could go back to 1986 when Tom Lewis transferred from USC to Pepperdine and Matt Beeuwsaert transferred from Notre Dame to California.
But lets move to the past few years. Eight Mater Dei players have transferred since 2007, including Taylor King (Duke, Villanova, Concordia), the Wear twins (North Carolina, UCLA) and Keala King (Arizona State, Long Beach State, TBA).
Reinhardt is just the latest. I bet Andy Enfield wants a 3-point shooter but does he really want Reinhardt to play point? Count me as extremely skeptical that would work in the Pac-12.
I can’t say this makes a lot of sense. Katin Reinhardt, who committed to USC during his junior year at Mater Dei, is leaving UNLV and might transfer to USC. Why? Because Reinhardt wants to play point guard.
Apparently starting 34 games and taking 324 shots wasn’t enough at UNLV. I remember hearing when he decommitted from USC that he wanted to play point guard. If you’ve seen Reinhardt play, point guard is not exactly the position that jumps out at you.
Does Reinhardt at the point sound like a fit for Andy Enfield?
With Matt Barkley generating excitement in Philadelphia, Eagles fans are probably eager to read something like this, which argues Barkley was not worse in 2012 from a statistical standpoint than in 2011.
That is a fine argument, unless you actually watched the games last season and saw Barkley’s performances on a weekly basis. There were other factors, of course, like the offensive line and an over reliance on Marqise Lee. But the fact is Barkley did have a poor season.
