Four-Star Point Guard Reece Beekman An “Ideal Fit” For Virginia

Scotlandville Magnet (Baton Rouge, LA) point guard Reece Beekman drew Tony Bennett’s attention in the months following his sophomore season, earning a scholarship offer from Virginia’s head coach on July 30, 2018. Bennett followed up with a visit to Baton Rouge last September and pushed for the standout prospect to make an official visit to Charlottesville. Clearly, the 3-time National Coach of the Year pegged Beekman early as one of his top targets in the class of 2020.

The Louisiana native ultimately felt Virginia was a great fit as well, verbally committing to Bennett last week while in Charlottesville for the 2019 NBPA Top 100 Camp.

“Just talking with my family every day,” Beekman said, discussing with media last Thursday (June 13) – the day he announced his commitment – how he came to his decision. “Just trying to find the best fit for me. Best situation. [The decision to commit to UVA] came a little while back, but me and my mom decided to tell this … to announce it [at the Top 100 Camp].”
