Reed continues to impress

It has been a good spring for Davon Reed, and the recruiting attention continues to come in.

Team Final has two wings who lead the way for them, and one is Princeton (NJ) Day School product Davon Reed. Reed is one of the more productive players on the East Coast, and has recruiting attention from numerous high major programs.

At 6-foot-5 with long arms and solid athleticism, Reed is someone who is a matchup problem on the wing for many people, and he has showed that this spring.

"I think in Minnesota I played pretty well, and then I wasn't as good in Virginia, but it is coming down the stretch now to qualify for Peach Jam so I know I have to pick it up," said Reed.

Reed feels that his game has come along pretty well in the past year.

"I am just working to be a knock down shooter," said Reed. "I have been working on that, and then also I have been trying to improve my ball handling. I feel it is coming along."

Along with being an excellent basketball player, Reed is also a great student. He says academics will play a big role in his final decision.

"I am looking to major in sports medicine so academics will play a huge part in my decision," said Reed.

In terms of his recruitment, several schools have stepped up the interest in him, and are making him a priority.

"UConn, Miami, Harvard, Cincinnati, Xavier, Wake Forest, Louisville, Georgetown, a lot of schools have been calling," Reed explained.

When it comes to Connecticut, he says the interest has really picked up as of late.

"They are going through a rough time right now, but they are looking for me to come in and make an immediate impact," Reed explained. "I know Coach (Jim) Calhoun likes long guards and is looking for me to come in and be a shooter."

Also the Miami Hurricanes have made sure to show Reed significant attention recently.

"Miami is a real good program," Reed explained. "They want a long guard who can come in and knock down shots and I think I could help them with that."

Currently Reed is rated as the No. 62 player in the nation. At the moment he has no plans or a timeline to make his commitment, but thinks that he may take his official visits before coming to a decision.
