The Pitt basketball program currently has six open scholarships to fill, and has hit the ground running already, recruiting several new transfer portal prospects each day.
The latest addition to the staff’s recruiting board is Antonio Reeves, a 6-foot-6 guard out of Illinois State who confirmed to PSN that Pitt reached out to him on Sunday.
Reeves is a 6-foot-6 guard who played the last three seasons for Illinois State, improving his numbers in each of the three years. The Chicago native played high school ball for Simeon, the same school that produced Derrick Rose, Talen Horton-Tucker, Jabari Parker, and more.
After averaging 7.2 points per game his freshman year and 12.4 his sophomore year, Reeves bumped up his production to average 20.1 points per game this season. He shot 47% from the field and 39% from three-point range this year, hitting 76 three pointers, which is 33 more than anyone on Pitt this season.

Reeves is a hot commodity in the portal already, as he has heard from programs such as Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and more in addition to Pitt. He told PSN that on Sunday alone, he also heard from Ole Miss, BYU, Pitt, Nebraska, DePaul, Purdue, Alabama, and more.
Reeves also included that he does not have a timetable for his commitment set yet.
