Reed Sheppard was one of a big handful of top high school recruits in Lexington over the weekend. Joining fellow junior five-stars such as Mackenzie Mgbako and DJ Wagner, Sheppard soaked in Friday night’s Big Blue Madness experience at Rupp Arena.
“Reed had a positive experience,” Jeff Sheppard, father of Reed, told KSR on Monday. “It was a lot of fun for him and he had a really good weekend.“
Reed Sheppard got to spend a good chunk of time hanging out with Mgbako and Wagner, a pair of five-star juniors who play for the same AAU team, the NJ Scholars. Both were in Lexington for official visits and to experience the Big Blue Madness atmosphere. Since Sheppard plays in the Adidas circuit while Mgbako and Wagner are associated with Nike, they rarely get to spend time like this around each other, on or off the hardwood.
