Jeff Reid Talks K-State

Jeff Reid, Scout.com three-star shooting guard from Topeka-Hayden, Kansas, holds one scholarship offer and is receiving interest from schools across the country. Reid talked about the latest news with his recruitment.



"The only offer I have right now is Kansas State," said Jeff Reid. "I am receiving strong interest from Gonzaga, Marquette, KU, Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri and Stanford as well."

"I haven't taken any visits in a while. I am not sure where I will visit next. My last visit was to K-State. I went there when they played Texas. I have been up there a few other times."

Reid talked in-depth about his recruitment from Kansas State and his interest in the Wildcats.

"I talked to the coaches every time they are allowed to talk to us," he said. "I speak mostly to coach Brad Underwood. I like their coaching staff."

"Both of my parents went to school at K-State. I have an older brother [Josh Reid] who played there as well. I have always liked them. I like the coaches and the players. The school is close to home."

"I feel like K-State took a big step by making the NCAA tournament. They have improved a lot. I believe they are getting the program on the right track."

Reid may have grown up a fan of the Wildcats, but that doesn't mean he is a lock to go to school in Manhattan.

"Right now I don't have any favorites," he said. "I am going to wait and see how the summer goes. I think I will get more offers. I am going to wait to see who all offers, and then I will decide."

"Academics is a big part in my decision. I also want to know the school well and make sure the coaches are going to be there for a while. I want to have a good relationship with them. I also want to feel at home."

The 6-foot-5, 185-pound prospect averaged 19 points and six assists per game during his junior season.

"Most schools are recruiting me to play the wing position," Reid said. "I am really trying to improve my defense. That is what coaches are looking at. That is a big challenge for me and something I am trying to improve."

Reid will play AAU with the Kansas City Pump 'N Run.
