NCAA.com Names Mason's Reuter Top-15 Impact Transfer
NCAA.com's Andy Katz has selected George Mason redshirt-junior Jarred Reuter as one of his top-15 impact transfers across the country this season.
Reuter has impressive company on that roster, including former Stanford star and University of Kentucky grad transfer Reid Travis. Other student-athletes on the list are Kansas' Dedric and Ki Lawson, Villanova's Joe Cremo, Gonzaga's Geno Crandall and Ohio State's Keyshawn Woods.
Reuter practiced with the Patriots throughout the 2017-18 and made a major impact within the Mason program, despite not being able to suit up for games due to NCAA transfer guidelines. He has two seasons of elibility with the Patriots beginning in 2018-19.
The Marion, Mass., product played his first two seasons at the University of Virginia, where he shot 58 percent from the floor as a sophomore.
During Mason's abroad trip in Spain, Reuter provided a strong presence in the post while averaging 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and shooting 60 percent from the floor over the Patriots' three games.
About the Patriots
George Mason is the only team in the nation which returns 100 percent of its scoring output from the 2017-18 campaign. Mason welcomes back every student-athlete from a team that placed fifth in the Atlantic 10. That finish marked Mason's best in its five-year tenure in the league. The Patriots will be led by 2018 All-Atlantic 10 second team selection Otis Livingston II, who is one of just five Div. I players returning who has posted at least 1,400 points, 350 assists and 250 rebounds in a career.
In addition to welcoming back all five 2017-18 starters, the Patriots also will add former University of Virginia forward Jarred Reuter (Marion, Mass.), as well as a recruiting class that features guards Jason Douglas-Stanley (Mount Vernon, N.Y.), Jamal Hartwell II (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Jordan Miller (Middleburg, Va.).
