Early honor for Trovon Reed

With the release of the first Scout 100 for the 2010 class, Louisiana saw a few players earn early four-star honors. One of those prospects is Thibodaux's Trovon Reed, and the offers are already piling up for the junior standout.

"I have already gotten offered by Georgia, Ole Miss, Arkansas and Oregon," Reed said. "I have a lot of colleges on my mind right now, but nothing in terms of a leader yet. I used to try to come up with top three's and things like that, but I didn't know what all that really meant until now."


After running the table in the regular season, Reed and Thibodaux dropped a 48-14 decision to Barbe in the quarterfinals of the 5A state playoffs. He couldn't recall any of his exact stats, but he estimated that he finished with over 1,700 yards of total offense and accounted for 23 touchdowns.


"I felt like we had a great season," he said. "I thought for a while there that we really had a chance to run it. But when we started losing in that Barbe game we started to breaking down as a team, and we couldn't come back like that."


While Reed lined up at quarterback primarily on Friday nights, he projects as a wide receiver on the next level. The Thibodaux-native said that he is looking for a college that will be able to utilize his speed at the position.


"I really want to get somewhere where I can play, and not just sit the bench for four years," Reed said. "I have been hearing from schools like Alabama a lot, but you look at them and you can see they are looking for the taller receivers, so I am just trying to get into a program that fits me."


The 6-foot, 172 pound Reed, who possesses 4.44 speed, said that he looks to fit more into a spread offense that gets the ball to the receivers in various ways.


"Oregon has offered and shown me a lot about what they can do with me," he said. "The jet sweeps are the types of plays that I can really make something happen. They have a good program, so I am going to check them out. And, you have to love those jerseys."


As for the hometown team, Reed said that the Tigers will be one of the teams in the thick of the race until the end.


"LSU runs a lot of the stuff that I like as well, the Trindon [Holliday] type stuff," he said. "I am coming down at the end of January for the first Junior Day, so I am looking forward to that. I know coach [Josh] Henson has come out to some games, and coach [Doug] Mallory has been by the school, so the interest from them is there."


While Reed was acknowledged in the Scout 100, so was his cousin, Temple running back and four-star Lache Seastrunk.


"Me and Lache are pretty pumped to be going through this together," he said. "With his dad in the military, Lache was always moving as a kid. Now that he has settled we are getting to spend time together. We are going to work out a lot together next summer, and then the plan will hopefully be to go to the same school together in college."
