UVA lands commitment from four-star guard Reece Beekman

uva basketballDefending national champion UVA has landed a commitment from Top 50 2020 recruit Reece Beekman.

Beekman, a 6’2” point guard, committed to Virginia Thursday morning. ESPN has Beekman, from Baton Rouge, La., ranked as the #44 player in the Class of 2020.

Beekman is currently in Charlottesville taking part in the NBA Top 100 Camp being held this week at the John Paul Jones Arena.

He is the second commitment for the Class of 2020, joining three-star shooting guard Carson McCorkle (Greensboro, N.C.).

That recruiting class will also effectively include Marquette transfer Sam Hauser, who committed to UVA last month, but has to sit out the 2019-2020 season per NCAA transfer rules, and will be eligible in 2020-2021.
