Carman-Ainsworth grad Reggie Stallings one of several newcomers vying for minutes at Central Missouri

The University of Central Missouri was one of the top teams in Division II college basketball season, but the team also loses three starters heading into the season.

Among the newcomers hoping to earn minutes is former Carman-Ainsworth and Beecher player Reggie Stallings. From the Sedalia (Missouri) Democrat:

Newcomers Joel Barkers, Lance Beckwith, Deveyon Hunter, Dominique Long and Reggie Stallings will be in the mix for playing time as will be three redshirt players guard Chris James, forward Cullen Rosine and guard Tyrone Young. The Mules’ season begins Nov. 4 with an exhibition game against Austin Peay in Clarksville, Tenn.

Central Missouri will be Stallings’ third college team. He had a decent freshman season at Wayne State, then transferred to Trinity Valley Community College in Texas last season.

I watched Stallings work out with several pros from Flint over the summer in a pickup game. He was playing against guards like Charlie Bell, Kelvin Torbert, William Hatcher and Greg Burks, and he was holding his own against those guys. It’ll be interesting to see how he does at Central Missouri, which is ranked No. 19 in the country in the D-II preseason poll after finishing last season ranked No. 7.

    Buctown product. Great guy.

  2. Hoopsguru says:

    This young man went to two High Schools (in the same city) and now 3 colleges.

    I personally think athletes transferring schools is getting kind of out of hand these days.

    What is the fundamental reason why athletes (high school and college) are so open to transferring?
