With the spring evaluation period still upon us for girls basketball prospects in the state, many of the state's top girls prospects are looking to raise the attention of college coaches across the country. Some younger prospects have proven themselves this spring, and proven that the 2016 class in the state for girls is very strong. One prospect that has proven herself a great deal this spring is Valley Vista High School's gifted 5-foot-8 sophomore guard prospect Jordenn Reible.
After a solid showing during her sophomore season at Valley Vista HS under the quality leadership of head coach Rachel Matakas, Reible helped lead the Monsoon to an 18-12 overall record this season, and a strong showing in the post-season before falling to a talented Mountain Pointe HS team in narrow fashion (61-56) on the road. While Reible did not put up big overall numbers as a sophomore starter for Valley Vista, she has picked up her play this spring a great deal.
Reible was a big factor in her club program's recent 4-0 performance in California. While playing for the Arizona Magic Elite 17U girl's team at this year's U.S. Junior Nationals California Classic basketball tournament – an NCAA Certified event. Reible helped lead her program to a strong showing in the event, benefiting her team with strong perimeter shooting and ball handling from the guard position. She has a strong lower body and gets low to the ground on her dribble, allowing her to get into the lane when she desires and finish with a variety of runners and floaters against bigger post players.
Reible is the daughter of a former college coach, Tresa Reible. Tresa Reible is also the head coach of her club program, which has allowed the young Reible to play with very good comfortability this spring. While playing alongside such top-rated Arizona prospects as fellow 2016 prospect Raina Perez of Millennium HS, and middle-school phenom and 2018 prospect Rea Craig, Reible has risen to the occasion this spring.
Now regarded as one of the elite guard prospects in Arizona's 2016 class of prospects, Reible has the potential to play at the division-I level and should garner loads of division-I interest over the next two years while competing on the spring and summer AAU/club circuit.
I will continue to follow the progress of Reible as a college prospect closely over the next two years, and look for her, with continued hard work, to develop into one of the top guard prospects in the state.
