Over the past year Owen Dease has continued to develop his game and become one of the more talented juniors in all of Indiana. The 6’5” wing has been having another strong season at Evansville Reitz High School to generate further interest for himself. 

Last May, University of Evansville became the first school to offer Dease a scholarship. Miami of Ohio joined in and became the second school to offer him in October. “I love both schools that have offered because I feel like they see something in me that makes them think I can help their team win in the future,” he mentioned on his thoughts on both Evansville and Miami (OH). 

Some of the other programs to have shown interest in Dease include Butler, Kansas State, Middle Tennessee State, and Purdue. When talking about what he is looking for in is future college, he stated “I’m looking for the best option to help me succeed.”

The junior is a lengthy and athletic wing with a well-rounded game. He is a skilled slasher who gets to the basket well. Dease has continued to develop his perimeter jumper nicely. He looks up to a trio of highly talented NBA players whn modeling his own game; Paul George, Devin Booker, and Kevin Durant.   

Dease has used all of his abilities to be averaging 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists per game for Reitz. With Dease, in addition to a talented roster that includes Khristian Lander, Reitz was able to finish the regular season with a lofty 15-7 record.
