Angel Reese had a remarkable season last year with the LSU Tigers, ultimately securing the National Title with her teammates. Despite facing some controversy over her on-court celebrations, many regarded the criticisms as insincere. Consequently, she garnered various NIL deals, and there’s speculation that she’s already earning a substantial income despite still being in college. As she approaches her WNBA debut, fans eagerly anticipate her future matchups, particularly with players like Caitlin Clark.
Regrettably, Angel Reese now finds herself embroiled in controversy with the Tigers. The feud between her mom and Flau’Jae Johnson’s mom on social media has been escalating, with implications from Johnson’s mother suggesting that Reese may be struggling academically.
This reached a tipping point recently when Reese did not play in a recent game, and her head coach, while confirming her continued presence on the team, cited her absence for unspecified reasons. Speculation among fans is that a low GPA may be the cause of her exclusion from the lineup.
In response to the rumors, Reese took to Twitter yesterday, urging people not to believe everything they read. Her succinct yet effective message aimed to dispel some of the circulating speculations.
However, the actual reason for her absence remains undisclosed, leaving fans to speculate about the circumstances. LSU has yet to provide information on the matter, and the team’s season is off to a challenging start, contrary to their hopes.
The hope is that clarity on this situation will emerge in the not-so-distant future.
