Houston, TX (Future150) -- 2020 post Reginald Poole of the Acadiana Redhawks (LA) had a big showing at Future150's Main Event Houston Tournament, and has the potential to be one of the best players in Louisiana in his graduating class.
The rising sophomore was a big presence down low in the 15U division in Houston, and it could be argued he was one of the best post players in the entire tournament. He is a raw post, but knows what his strengths and weaknesses are right now, which helps him out a lot when he's on the floor because he plays to his strengths on a consistent basis.
"I think my greatest strengths right now are my agility and my height," Poole said. "I'm trying to get stronger and improve my defense, as well as my shooting."
Poole stands around 6'6" and has incredible length that he uses to protect the rim and dominate the glass on both ends of the floor. He is a true definition of a rim runner at this point with his long arms, and agility/conditioning that allows him to get up the floor just as fast as most guards can.
He is a solid finisher around the rim and possesses decent footwork. Once he adds in a few go-to moves and a consistent short range jumper, Poole could start seeing some interest from some low/mid-major programs.
When looking at his frame, it seems like he should sprout up at least another few inches, which is definitely a good sign for him. He doesn't have any schools tracking his steps right now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see some start sniffing his trail within the next year or so.
With him definitely being one of the young guns to watch in the state of Louisiana, stay locked in with Future150 as we continue to track his development and progress in his game.
