OREGON’S JARMAL SIGNS WITH NORTH EAST BUSHRANGERS
The North East Bushrangers Basketball Club are excited to announce the signing of Jarmal Reid as our Division 2 Men’s import for the 2020 season. Jarmal is product of Oregon State University and the PAC12 Conference. He is an athletic and agile player with limitless versatility which will strengthen our inside outside options. At 26 years of age and being a lofty 202cm and 109 kgs, he will be a formidable force to guard inside the paint and an asset on the boards. We will be looking for Jarmal to utilise his wealth of NCAA D1 experience, and extensive basketball coaching credentials to provide strong leadership to our young playing group while assisting with our VJBL program as well.
NBL legend, Al Green coached Jarmal in the South Australian Premier League when he played a season with ‘Souths’. Al could not speak highly enough of Jarmal commenting ‘Jarmal is great on and off the court, quite simply, he is an outstanding human being’.
Bushrangers’ Head Coach, Emma Henry said, “We are excited to have Jarmal join the Bushies squad and provide more depth to the group. He will be a much-needed strong presence inside the key both offensively and defensively. He brings with him a lot of experience and can stretch the floor and play from the perimeter. We look forward to him working with some of our young and developing players to help them continue to take their game to the next level. “
Jarmal said upon signing with NEB - “I’m excited and fortunate for the opportunity at North East and can’t wait to get out there and get the show started”.
Jarmal will be an asset off the court too! Jarmal loves the idea of ‘developing the kids and letting their improvement be fun’. Junior player development in North East Victoria is a priority for the Club. Jarmal is excited at the prospect of imparting his knowledge and in the process add value to a new generation of basketballers.
North East Bushrangers would like to extend their appreciation to Michael Yates of ‘Aussie Player Agency’ for his professionalism around sourcing and securing Jarmal Reid for the Club in 2020.
