For the fourth time in the class of 2014, Maryland has struck. For the fourth time, they've added a four-star talent to the ranks.
During a visit on Thursday, four-star center Trayvon Reed from Georgia by way of Mississippi committed to Maryland.
Mark Turgeon and the Terps had been considered the team to beat for a while now and there were even premature reports over the weekend that Reed had committed.
But, it just took getting Reed on campus to seal the deal.
A toothpick thin seven footer who played with Each 1 Teach 1 during the summer, Reed currently ranks No. 68 nationally. Reed being onboard means that Maryland won't be without a big in this recruiting class.
Reed can definitely run the floor. He is agile and quick and he's got long arms as well. At times he has shown great potential as a shot blocker and has good enough touch around the rim.
Moving onto college, and specifically the Big Ten, Reed is going to have to get much, much stronger. Because he can get pushed around, Reed's production and motor have been a bit inconsistent during his high school career.
Bottom line, with Reed added into the fold Maryland's already formidable 2014 class is made quite strong. With high four-star combo guard Romelo Trimble, four-star shooting guard Dion Wiley and four-star small forward Jared Nickens already in the fold, the Terps have one of the nation's premier recruiting classes.
