Freshman Focus: Malik Reneau

Montverde Academy was stacked with talent. The Eagles’ 2019-20 roster featured multiple future NBA players: Scottie Barnes, Cade Cunningham, Day’Ron Sharpe and Moses Moody. At the time, Malik Reneau was a sophomore, playing for Mater Academy Charter (Hialeah Gardens, Florida). Montverde Academy played a preseason game against Mater Academy Charter. Despite the loaded Montverde Academy roster and the fact that Reneau was a sophomore, he had a stellar performance.

“When he first played against us (Montverde Academy), it was… his instinct of, you know, taking a shot, missing a shot, going back, getting the rebound,” said Rae Miller, Montverde Academy associate head coach, remembering Reneau’s performance during that game.
