The Duke Chronicle Looks At Christian Reeves

He’s young and raw but man does he have potential

Syndication: The Fayetteville Observer
Oak Hill center Christian Reeves (30) blocks a shot against St.Vincent-St.Mary’s during the Canton Play By Play Classic at the Canton Civic Center in Canton, Ohio, on Monday, Feb. 21, 2022.

We were really thrilled when Christian Reeves committed to Duke. Although he’s expected to redshirt, the 6-11 Reeves has considerable potential.

He is a solid defender, has serious offensive potential, and playing against Dereck Lively, Kyle Filipowski and Ryan Young will help him a lot this year, whether he sits out or not.

The problem Reeves faces is simple: at 210, he’s pencil thin (Liveley’s no thicker but he’s a bit more advanced at this point). A year of lifting weights and banging against the other bigs will only help.

The Duke Chronicle takes a look at where he is and where he might go. It’s worth a year’s wait.
