Reed pledges to Auburn
Trayvon Reed is headed to Auburn. Reed, who committed and later signed with Maryland, parted ways with the Terrapins in the early summer and on Thursday he informed Scout.com that he is headed to Auburn. Why the Tigers? It was simple for Reed. He wants to play for Bruce Pearl. “I like the situation that he has coming to Auburn,” Reed told Scout.com. “I feel like he’s a good coach and I feel like he can make me better as a person on and off the court. He can make me a better basketball player and a person.” “His history,” Reed added. “I always liked him as a coach at Tennessee. With me talking to him today that really moved my decision to coming to Auburn. I liked that way he talked to me and I think he’s a genuine person.” Reed visited Auburn Thursday afternoon. Auburn is close to Mobile (Ala.), where Reed considers home, and that factored into his decision as well. “ I just wanted to be in my hometown,” Reed said. “”I feel like Auburn was my best decision.” Reed, a 7-footer, will attend Elev-8 Prep in Florida for the first semester and will be back at Auburn in December in hopes of playing for the Tigers during the second semester. Reed was regarded as a four-star prospect and the No. 95 ranked player in the 2014 class.
