Emerging center getting comfortable with Maryland, talks early relationships

2025 Bullis (MD) center Eric Reibe showed why he’s among the more sought-after prospects within the DMV in the 2025 class after putting his length and efficient shooting on full display through the weekend at DMV Live. Reibe leaned on his soft touch around the rim and smooth stroke outside the paint to help Bullis finish 3-1 through session one, averaging nearly ten points and seven rebounds on 50% shooting from the field. Reibe also used his length to his advantage on the other end of the court, recording at least one block in all but one game while limiting St. Frances’ production in the paint with four blocks on Sunday.

“I think I became faster, more aggressive, more physical,” Reibe told IBG. “I’ve just got to keep working on taking good shots, get more offensive boards and dunks. I always try to keep the same energy even when I miss a layup or shot. Just try to create the mentality to always get back.” After moving from Germany and enrolling at Bullis in the midst of his sophomore year, the athleticism that the 6-foot-11 center has shown through his sophomore year into the summer is a big reason why he’s watched his recruitment already take shape.

Along with drawing an invite to the NBPA Top 100 camp, Indiana, Providence, Illinois, Iowa, Georgetown, Maryland, Missouri and Wake Forest have all extended offers while Illinois, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Providence, Purdue and Princeton were among the schools to reach out to Reibe. “It was a great feeling to see so many people interested but I’m trying to use it as motivation.”

Reibe has familiarity with Purdue, Maryland and Virginia Tech have familiarity in his recruitment. With the father of Hokies guard Rodney Rice helping Reibe navigate his recruitment, the connection to both Maryland and Virginia Tech carries weight as assistant coach Mike Jones has sparked the Terps’ pursuit with David Cox pitching in. Reibe was able to unofficially visit campus this spring to get a closer look at the program.

“Things are going good. They’re always talking to me about the bigger picture,” Reibe added. “It was great seeing how the facility is built, how it’s like a family over there and how they practice. Everything is very smooth. I just like how they try to keep in touch with me and how they make a better relationship. They think I’m a great player. I can shoot, dribble, pass and Maryland would be a great place to stay and develop at.”

Reibe doesn’t have any visits set for the summer but will look to begin taking official visits closer to the start of his junior season.
