Tyrel Reed Audible: "Kirk Hinrich is my favorite NBA player. I try to mold my game after his. I still need to become quicker on the defensive side of the ball, and need to improve my ball handling skills. I just love the way Hinrich plays the game of basketball. People tell me that he and I have similar games, but I never get tired of hearing that." - Tyrel Reed
Tyrel Reed Scouting Report "A heady point guard with size, Reed has average foot speed and quickness for the position. However, he passes the ball well up the court and uses deception with the dribble. He does put pressure on the defense with his reliable jumper." - Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com
