Brandon Reese is now a professional basketball player. Yes, you read that correctly. The 5'11" guard signed a contract earlier today to join Maccabi Hod Hosharon, a professional team in Israel.
Terms of the deal haven't been disclosed, but Reese, a walk-on turned scholarship athlete at SU, is now living his life-long dream.
Because foreign leagues put a quota on the number of American-born players that can be on a teams' roster, Reese has said that he will attempt to apply for dual-citizenship. If granted, that will definitely help him in his pursuit of a long career overseas.
Not many people saw this coming, but I think it's pretty darn cool. He's an extremely hard-worker that did his best to make himself, and his teammates better at all times. Well-deserved, Brandon!
