Ryan Reid Has Four on Top

Ryan Reid is a guy that doesn't wow you with his athleticism, but he just flat-out gets things done. The 6-8 senior forward from Florida is in the process of setting up visits and four schools head the list.

Ryan Reid is weighing the pros and cons of staying close to home or going out of state. The one factor that may decide whether he leaves Florida or not is his mother's health.

``She hasn't been feeling that good, so I'll probably pick a couple schools close to home to visit and then maybe one or two away from home," Reid said.

The in-state schools who are almost certain to receive a visit are Florida, Miami and Florida State with Pittsburgh being the odds-on favorite to receive an out-of-state trip. According to Reid, all four of those schools have offered a scholarship.

Reid, who played well with the Tallahassee Wildcats this past summer and is a versatile 6-8, 220-pound forward who goes hard all the time, said that he doesn't have a current leader among the three Sunshine State schools and he won't – until after he takes his official visits.

``They're all telling me the same thing," Reid said. "That I can come right in and play right away. The difference is that some say I'll play more on the wing and others have told me I'll play more down low."

Which would Reid prefer? ``Right now I'd rather play the four in college," he said. "I've been doing that for a while. I just started playing the three this summer."
