Angel Reese’s brothers
Angel Reese has 2 brothers, a younger brother called Julian Reese and a step brother named Mikael Hopkins.
Julian Reese is a sophomore on Maryland’s men’s team and he competed for St. Frances Academy.
Reese and her younger brother, Julian, were competitive rivals when they practiced together.
Shortly after her and her brother were born Angel’s parents split up.
Reese’s mother raised her and Julian as a single mother and because of her basketball background was a major influence.
“I used to go to my mom’s games when I was younger. She used to play in a little league, and I used to always go watch her games on Sundays. That was something that was always inspiring to me,” Reese says. “She’s always been independent and she molded that into me. I am who I am because of her.”
Being an elder sibling, the LSU Tigers forward takes good responsibility for Julian, who is also making an indelible mark on college basketball.
