Arkansas State men’s basketball head coach Mike Balado announced Friday that John A. Logan College product and former Marion (Ark.) High School standout Detrick Reeves has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Red Wolves for the 2022-23 season.

“We are excited to have Detrick join our program,” said Balado. “This is a young man I have had my eye on for a long time. His versatility, toughness and skill level as a basketball player make him a huge addition to our program. He also possesses a very high IQ on the floor and we can’t wait to have him on campus.”

A member of the John A. Logan program each of the last two seasons, Reeves appeared in 27 total games over the course of the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons while battling injuries. This past season, Reeves played in 22 games for the 29-4 team and made seven starts posting 6.8 points per game on 44.5 percent (49-110) shooting and 35.2 percent (19-54) shooting beyond the arc. He averaged 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.6 steals per game. In his freshman season of 2020-21, Reeves played in five games and averaged 7.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 0.6 steals.

A two-time All-State selection, Reeves averaged 24 points as a senior and totaled over 2,500 points for Marion (Ark.) High School. He was an All-Arkansas Preps First Team member and was the 5A Player of the Year for the Arkansas Basketball Coaches Association. He helped the Patriots to the 2019 Class 5A State Title with a 57-54 win over Little Rock Hall while the 2020 squad advanced to the state semifinals.
