Nutt optimistic about freshman point guardPosted Tuesday, August 21, 2012, at 8:58 AM
SEMO men's basketball coach Dickey Nutt is optimistic that freshman point guard C.J. Reese will be able to suit up for the Redhawks this season.
Reese has not yet been approved academically by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Nutt told me he feels good that things will still work out for Reese with the Redhawks this year.
Reese, who played high school basketball in Chattanooga, Tenn., is the most touted among SEMO's three freshmen for this season.
The other two, combo guard Jared White and 6-foot-10 center Colin Ferguson -- both from De Soto (Mo.) High School -- have qualified academically and are on campus.
The same goes for touted junior college transfer guard/forward Anthony Jones.
Jones attended SEMO last year but could not practice with the team and had to pay his own way until he met his one-year residency requirement to become eligible.
From everything I've heard, Jones will be a huge addition for the Redhawks and could turn out to be one of their top players.
The Redhawks also need Reese, their only true point guard after Lucas Nutt. Reese was expected play key minutes backing up Nutt.
