2015 forward Jarred Reuter updates his recruitment

DEERFIELD, Ill. — After picking up an offer from Tom Crean and the Indiana coaching staff last summer, 2015 forward Jarred Reuter continues to draw interest from a host of high-major programs.

“Just recently in the last tournament I played in, Florida offered me,” Reuter told Inside the Hall. “I’ve been getting some interest and calls from Kansas, West Virginia and Duke.”

Reuter is currently playing for the NE Playaz class of 2013 team, but a left ankle injury limited his minutes in a Saturday morning first-round pool play game in the Best Buy Classic at Joy of the Game.

“I’ve been out with an ankle injury for a little while, so it’s holding me back,” Reuter said. “It’s my left ankle. It’s my first tournament back in four or five weeks. It was my first game. I felt alright. It should be OK.”

The 6-foot-8, 250-pound power forward, who was originally a member of the class of 2014, isn’t sure when he’ll line up any visits to interested programs, but that he’d probably go to some elite camps this summer to get more familiar with coaching staffs.

The Indiana offer Reuter received came last summer following an elite camp he attended in Bloomington.

“I’m still a freshman,” said Reuter. “Once I know where I want to go, nothing’s going to hold me back and I’ll commit, but I don’t know when that will be. I’ll keep developing my game and when I develop more I’ll see where I fit in best.”

Reuter, the No. 18 prospect nationally in his class according to ESPN.com,  also said he’s currently working on getting into better shape — which includes a new diet.

“No bread. I’m working on it,” he said.

    You rarely see a freshman who bangs around like this kid does. I love players like this and he still has 4 years to improve so who knows how, big or good he will end up. Problem with offering scollies to kids this age is you don’t really know if they will even get any better but he looks like a hard nosed kid right now.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Exactly the same build and aggressiveness

    He shows a lot of poise to be so young. Good strength and knows how to finish after contact. Good touch on his shot. If he works hard on defense and has a rebounder’s mentality the sky is the limit. Mr. Reuter, you would look mighty fine in candy stripes.

    Looks like he doesn’t mind banging down low & uses his body well to gain an advantage, seems willing and able to pass to the open man, uses the backboard, seems to have decent hops for a kid as young as he is and as heavy as he is, plus losing a little bit of weight, along with maturing, will only make his hops even better.

    Hell he even uses a shot fake & more than once in a great while or as a last resort after getting himself in a bind. Hard to find something to dislike about this kid. The only thing missing is candy stripes.

    Looks like he could be a good one. Nice frame to build on, relentless down low, and he’s already strong. Give him some time to hit the weights and trim up, build some explosiveness and he’s a player for sure. Hansborough 2.0 is a good call, and I’d love to have that.

    I hope he’s a better speller than the person who designed his jersey.
