Former Maryland recruit Trayvon Reed commits to Auburn

August 28, 2014

Four weeks after he was dismissed from the Maryland men’s basketball team, Trayvon Reed has committed to Auburn, according to a report by CBS Sports.

The move comes after Reed was arrested in College Park on July 30 and charged with four counts, including two counts of second-degree assault. One of those charges includes second-degree assault of a police officer. Reed was also charged with resisting arrest and theft of less than $100.

Reed never enrolled at Maryland, where he was expected to be a crucial piece of the Terrapins’ front court. The 7-foot-1 Reed committed to the Terps in August of 2013 and was rated the eighth-best center in the country by ESPN last year. Rivals and ranked him a four-star recruit.

Reed is expected to attend prep school this fall and will be eligible to join the Tigers in January, according to CBS Sports. He becomes the third high-profile player to recently commit to Auburn and first-year Coach Bruce Pearl. That includes 2015 guard Danjel Purifoy, who last week chose the Tigers over a list of schools that included Maryland.
