Reardon to Rochester
Rivers School’s six-foot-five senior forward Kyle Reardon had made a verbal commitment to the University of Rochester.
He was widely recruited by a number of schools at the division II and III levels while also generating plenty of division I interest over the course of his three year career at Rivers.
“I am blessed to be in a position where I can use basketball as a tool to further my education,” Reardon said. “The University of Rochester is the perfect combination of elite academics and high level basketball, and after being recruited by over 25 colleges, I felt the coaches and the school were the best place for me.”
Rochester plays in the highly competitive UAA (University Athletic Association) and has one of the proudest basketball traditions of any division III program in the country.
In Reardon, they are landing a player who has had a decorated high school career and should be ready to make an immediate contribution as a freshman. He is a two time team captain at Rivers, a two time selection to the All ISL team, and an all New England selection as a junior. He averaged 16 points and 8 rebounds last year as a junior and was named MVP of last month’s Rivers’ Holiday Tournament.
He’s been equally impressive during the AAU season and summer calendar. He was named to the all-star team at last summer’s Hoop Mountain Super Week II, selected for the New England Elite 75 Showcase, and spent the rest of the summer running with the Middlesex Magic.
“I want to thank my family, including my mom and dad, and all of my coaches, including Coach Mirken and Coach Crotty,” Reardon said. “I feel so fortunate to have this amazing opportunity and am really excited to help my team achieve our goals this year.”
Reardon is the seventh member of last year’s Middlesex Magic team to make his commitment. He joins Cooper Ainge (BYU), Anthony Barry (Merrimack), Connor Mahoney (Le Moyne), Eric Olson (Northwestern football), Jesse Pagliuca (Amherst), and Mike Thorpe (Emerson).
