When Utah State first began recruiting Kyisean Reed, these two photos popped up on the USUFans.com message board.
Many fans were questioning whether on not the photos were real. Can he really jump that high? Is there a little trampoline out of the photo? I think it’s safe to say that Kyisean has answered those questions. The guy is for real. The Gossner Classic has been somewhat of a coming out party for Reed. He has demonstrated his athleticism through a variety of dunks and blocked shots. One of his dunks against UT-Arlington should go down in Aggie lore. If only we could find some video footage of it… Reed completely posterized the UT-Arlington defender making what was an incredible athletic feat seem quite easy. He has also shown an ability to alter and block shots, swatting away five shots in the last three games. Reed has also become one of Brockeith Pane’s favorite targets for alley-oop plays, and we can only hope that continues as the year goes on.
Not only is Kyisean an incredible athlete, but he is also proving to be an incredibly efficient scorer. On the year, Reed is shooting 63% from the field, good enough to place him #7 all-time in Single Season FG% at Utah State. After a slow start to the season, Reed has averaged 14.1 point per game over the last 7 games, including a career high 27 points last night leading the Aggies to a convincing 81-62 victory over a quality Kent State squad. If Kyisean can continue to perform at this high level, there are good things in store for the Aggies this year.
