Q & A: 2014 forward Jarred Reuter

A new name to surface on the Indiana radar for the class of 2014 is St. Mark’s (MA) forward Jarred Reuter. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound Reuter is described on his ESPN.com scouting report as a “power player with a terrific motor.”

Inside the Hall caught up with Reuter, who missed his freshman season due to a foot injury sustained playing football, for a Q & A:

On the interest from Indiana:

“Two weeks ago at Elite Camp they offered me. I got down there and met with Coach Crean on Saturday before Elite Camp and just looked around the campus a little bit and went and played throughout the day on Sunday. After Elite Camp is when he (Coach Crean) offered me.”

On his game and where he is as a player:

“Right now I’m like 6-foot-8, 250. So I think a big part of my game that stands out is that a lot of kids don’t have is just strength. I’m just ahead of my age for physical strength and size right now, but because of that I rebound really well and I play well in the paint against big bodies. My shot’s pretty good all the way out to 3, but mid-range to 3 I can knock it down. I can pass as well.”

On the campus, Elite Camp and the IU coaches:

“The first day I was, I don’t even know how to explain it, more than impressed with the campus when I saw everything. It was amazing. It was beautiful, the size of it and all of the people. That got me liking it right away, before even playing or meeting all of the coaches at once, was just going on campus for the first ten to fifteen minutes. I could already see that it was somewhere I might want to be because I liked it a lot. Going through camp, hearing all four coaches talk and do drills and some of the players talk, I liked the way they were.”

On where he’ll be playing in July:

“I’m playing for the New England Playaz. I think I’m playing for both the 16’s and 17’s. I know we’ll be at adidas 64, the nationals in Orlando, this weekend we’re going to some tournament in Portland. We’ll be at the tournament in Indianapolis and I’m not 100 percent sure what the other tournaments are, but I know we’ll be at those three.”

    Saw the weight listed on ESPN, but opted to go with the weight given in the interview. Either way, he’s got an excellent frame for a 15-year old.

    Wow, it sounds like it would be an amazing get. Does he run and down the court with tenacity. Can he still go through a growth spirt?  He would be an awesome center for any team.

    Agreed, that is a big kid no matter what, esp at that age.  Liked the Tyler Hansborough comparison re: motor and such

    Quick question to all of you experienced parents: What could I feed my toddler to get him to be 6’8 250 at age 15. This could easily affect the age of my retirement if I can make this happen.

    6’8 250 ….may need to get away from the weight room for a few years.

    I recommend feeding your kid, smaller kids of the same age.

    Hilarious.  The first thing I thought was that he looked a bit like Physco T himself.

    I especially liked his comments about the beauty of the campus.  He obviously appreciates the overall environment as a great place to live for a few years.  I know it’s early but I wonder what he plans to study in college; I have a feeling that might also be a factor in his decision.

    I would be curious to know his wing span.  That might give us some idea if there is more growth in his future.

    Any information on what other schools have offered/shown interest?

    Finally, I like the look on his face–intense.

    On the other schools, he didn’t mention any other schools besides IU, but it’s still early.

    Could be CTC got to him first!!!  That is great if it happened…  CTC is a recruiting machine, and that is just what we need now and in the future.  Love the sight Alex.  I read it daily…

    Thanks for the advice everyone, I think I still have a shot, my wife is 5’8, i’m 6’2. I know so many kids who are giants over there parents. Not sure how big Jarreds parents are but he has a College ready build already.  On our way to a lunch buffet after leaving a breakfast buffet, then get in some road work.

    PS if you ever want to get annoyed by parents going to far with their kids….

    All I can say is . . . “Wow”. 

    I’m not really even sure how I feel after watching that?

    Jarred is a beast.  He’s also a world champion in BMX bike racing- I knew him in that life.  Just a mentally strong kid.  I’ve got nothing but good things to say about him.  I’d love to see him at UMASS, but there probably isn’t a shot in hell of that happening!  He’s a great athlete, but I think the winning mentality is what makes him special.
