Former Maryland recruit Trayvon Reed commits to Auburn


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.
