Reed continues to add interest

Trayvon Reed has all the ability in the world, and college coaches are banking on that as they pursue his services.

Five-star center prospect Trayvon Reed is one of the most naturally talented players in the class of 2014. The Snellville (Ga.) Shiloh High School star ran with the Atlanta Xpress over the summer and usually a whole hoard of coaches were tracking his progress.

At 7-feet tall with skill on the offensive end and the ability to dominate the game on defense, Reed's upside is through the roof. However Reed knows he needs to consistently put that skill set together.

"It's been going well," said Reed. "I have played alright. I haven't played exactly how I want to. I just have to keep working."

He continued, "I have to first work on my offense. My defense is down pat, but I know I need to improve on offense."

Schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida State, Clemson, Miami, and Memphis have all been recruiting Reed quite heavily to date.

When it comes to making unofficial visits, Reed says that he has only had a chance to visit to schools.

"The only visits I have been on were Georgia Tech and Auburn," said Reed.

Georgia Tech landed an Atlanta Xpress and Shiloh player in 2012 in Robert Carter, and they are hoping to do so again with Reed.

"I don't know that much about Georgia Tech, but it seems like a pretty good school and they have been at a lot of my games," Reed said.

A native of the state of Alabama, Reed also is hearing quite a bit from Auburn.

"Auburn seems like a good school," he explained. "The coaches are good. I think I could fit into their program, but I am going to wait until my senior year."

One school that hasn't yet offered, but has been actively recruiting him is North Carolina.

"My step-dad has told me that North Carolina has called," Reed explained. "It is good to know they are watching me. Especially the way I have been playing I didn't think they would be interested, but it is good to hear from them."

Reed says no decision will come down for a while, and he is hoping to keep improving his offensive game in order to become a more complete player.
