Drake offers Latrobe’s Fenton

Monday, June 11, 2018 | 11:54 AM


Recruiting is expected to take off in the coming months for Latrobe junior basketball player Reed Fenton.

The 6-foot-4 guard with the silky smooth jumper added his second Division I offer over the weekend, this one from Drake in Des Moines, Iowa.

Navy offered Fenton in early May. His father, Neal, played at Navy before transferring to Bucknell.

Drake plays in the Missouri Valley Conference. The last WPIAL star to play there was Highlands' Micah Mason in 2012. Mason, the WPIAL's all-time leader in 3-pointers and one of the most accurate long-range shooters in NCAA history, transferred to Duquesne after one season.

Reed Fenton is planning an unofficial visit to Iowa later this month. He already took an unofficial visit to LSU.

Fenton averaged 22 points, 4.5 assists and three steals last season for Latrobe.
