2013 Top Talent Ready for April Period

2013 Davon Reed updates A10Report.com on his recruitment and looking forward to the April live recruiting contact period.

It's not uncommon for top recruits to have long school lists.

For junior Davon Reed, that list might as well be a novel.

The six-foot-five shooting guard, who plays high school ball at Princeton Day School and joins up with Team Final on the AAU circuit, has a number of coaches wanting him to suit up for their programs.

As a top-flight academic performer as well, it's no surprise that Division I schools all across the country are making Reed a priority.

Princeton Day School made it to the state championship in New Jersey in what Reed called a "huge step" for his high school squad. Now he will turn his sights towards the select season as the April live period is just a matter of days away.

"I'm just trying to diversify my game completely," Reed told A10Report.com. "I improved my aggressiveness and my ballhandling, but I'm still working on my jump shot and being a knockdown shooter."

Reed isn't getting caught up with colleges watching him during the live period, but rather trying to make sure his game speaks for itself. With his skill set, college head and assistant coaches alike will be manning the sidelines to see him next month and in July.

"I want to knockdown the big shot or lock down the opponent's best player," Reed said. "Whatever it will take for our team to win."

The past couple of months have been a whirlwind experience for him at the high school level, but a variety of programs are watching his moves.

"A lot of Miami, oh boy, so many," Reed noted. "Wake [Forest], Harvard, St. Joe's, Temple, Rutgers, Boston College. Florida is getting back in the recruiting process. Cincinnati, George Washington, a lot of schools."

With Xavier also heavily interested, the Atlantic 10 has become a fixture in his recruitment.

"The Atlantic 10 made some noise this year definitely," Reed said. "All of them had great seasons. I still like Xavier a lot. It's always good to see them back in the Sweet 16. Temple had an early exit, but they continue to make the tournament every year. Just saying all these A-10 schools is good."

He said a few schools are standing out to him thus far, but isn't willing to show his hand quite yet. Reed said he'll be narrowing down his list throughout the summer.

"There are certain schools that I like more than others," Reed said. "There are so many that I'm getting interest from that I haven't really gotten on campus yet or know as much as I should before I make a decision about the program."

As this month carries on, it will be interesting to see who emerges as a leader in this four-star's recruitment.
