Brandon Reese was recruited to Syracuse as a preferred walk-on and while he eventually parlayed that into a scholarship, he'll always be the preferred person to walk-on to a photo shoot for Syracuse Orange fans.
Reese recently chatted with College Spun about his time at SU, how he ended up there and what it was like to room with Dion Waiters:
Tell me something I don’t know about Dion Waiters.
BR: He was my junior year roommate.
So you’ve got a lot of dirt then.
BR: [Laughs]. People can say, "I love the game more than anybody," but that’s a guy who breathes, bleeds and is basketball. He’s a great guy and a great competitor; very hard working.
But, something you don’t know? I think he’s since retired from it, but he used to think he was going to be the next big rapper. There still may be some videos left on YouTube.
HOLD THE PHONE.
Was someone going to tell me there are videos of Dion Waiters rapping out there in the ether? I did a quick search and came up empty. So since you failed at letting me know about this to begin with, it's now your job to find them.
Get to it. You didn't have anything to today anyway. Plus, you'll make a Cleveland Cavaliers fan's day. Or ruin it. Whatever.
Update: Thanks to Rufio, heres a video of Dion and Scoop spittin' fire.
Update 2: We've found the motherlode.
