The two newest young Chicago sports stars are friends. Angel Reese, the top draft pick of the WNBA’s Chicago Sky, said to NBC Chicago when asked whether she and the Chicago Bears‘ No. 1 over draft pick, Caleb Williams, had been in touch.

Reese smiled and said, “Yeah, me and Caleb are cool.”

The former LSU star added in the May 1 interview at Sky training camp, “One of my good friends are best friends with [Caleb] that are in my friend group. So we’re all from the DMV area,” a reference to D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

“Just being able to have another DMV tie, another amazing player … so we lit right now. We turning the city up right now,” she said. “[Caleb and I] talked after he got drafted. I don’t know when he’s gonna be here, but we’re all gonna hang out. My friend is coming down, and we’re all gonna hang out, cause we’re cool. So I’m excited.”

A week earlier, after Williams was selected by the Bears, Reese tweeted, “DMV TIES! LET’S TURN THE CITY UP!! CONGRATS GANG! @CALEBcsw.”

Angel Reese Says That She’s Single

Reese had been dating Florida State basketball player Cam’Ron Fletcher in 2023.

“Cam’Ron is my boyfriend,” she said on the 1 Star Recruits podcast in June 2023. “We both play the same sport so we understand each other’s schedule. I think that also helps with it too.”

Although Reese then announced that her and Fletcher broke up and that she’s single during a March 2024 Instagram Live video.

“Yeah, I’m single,” she said during the live Q&A video, per TMZ. “I don’t got no man. Don’t attach me to no man. That’s all I’mma say. That’s it.”

Reese then added, “I do what’s best for me, that’s it. I’m the catch! Let’s not get it twisted.”

While it sounds like her and Caleb Williams’ relationship is purely platonic at this point, the two certainly have a lot in common.

Both players were drafted in the first round of their respective drafts, for one.

Plus Reese was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. And Williams was born and raised in Washington, D.C. The two cities are about a one hour drive from each other.

And as the Chicago Sky forward noted, the two already have mutual friends, and have made plans to hang out once both are set up in Chicago.

Even if their relationship remains just as friends, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Williams supporting Reese at a Sky game in the near future.

Chicago’s Awesome Rookie Class

The city of Chicago’s sports teams have drafted multiple exciting rookies in the past few weeks.

Chicago’s WNBA team, the Sky, drafted Kamilla Cardoso with the No. 3 overall pick in the April 15 draft then Reese with pick No. 7. Then also selected Gonzaga’s Brynna Maxwell at No. 13 overall.

On April 25, the Bears selected Williams No. 1 overall, then former University of Washington receiver Rome Odunze with the NFL Draft’s No. 9 pick.

Now the question becomes who the Chicago Bulls will select in the 2024 NBA Draft, which starts on June 26.

The NBA Draft Lottery is being held on May 12, in Chicago.
