Reese was drafted seventh overall by the Chicago Sky in last week’s WNBA Draft and is looking forward to her league debut, having achieved everything she set out to in college basketball.

The former Tigers forward attracted some attention after her antics in the national title game against Iowa last year, having helped her school complete a successful March Madness period. Reese’s taunting of Caitlin Clark got much coverage and criticism, though many people jumped to her defense.

It didn’t take too long before the 21-year-old was back in the news for going after First Lady Jill Biden for insisting both the Tigers and Hawkeyes should be invited to the White House.

The following season was difficult for Reese as she was the subject of a lot of adverse reporting and abuse. But her time in college is now over as she chose to forego her final year of eligibility to take her talents to the pros.

Reese took to Twitter/X on Monday to urge everyone to “protect young women in sports!!!”

The post had reached 3.3 million impressions at the time of writing.

Is This A Political Message From Angel Reese?

Angel Reese did not explain her post, but it comes days after the Biden administration implemented new rules to protect LGBTQ+ students. The regulations will change the way sexual harassment and assault complaints are handled on campuses across the nation. However, there’s nothing therein prohibiting schools from placing bans on transgender athletes competing against females.

While the White House was expected to enforce such a rule, it’s been placed on hold.

We can’t be sure Reese’s comment had anything to do with the recent development, but the timing does suggest as much.
