[font=verdana][size=12px]Reid is a long and wiry wing who excels on the break. He is a pretty good defensive rebounder and has a good mid-range pull-up. Reid will need to be more active on defense and add strength as he continues to add to his game, but his length is an excellent asset. Clemson, Georgia Tech and Georgia State have expressed interest. Reid says he has taken unofficial visits to High Point and Winthrop.[/size][/font]
[font=verdana][size=11px]Strengths: Reid is a long wirey wing that runs the floor very well and can finish on the break with his great length. He is a good rebounder in and out of his area on both ends of the floor as well. Other than on the break reak Reid scores from the mid range areas mostly in the half court where he does a good job of using his shot fake that he should use more. Reid is also very active on defense and is capable of defending both forward positions.[/size][/font] [font=verdana][size=11px] Weaknesses: Reid will need to add strength and extend his shooting range to where it is a consistent weapon and continue to hone his balhandling when under intense ball pressure.
Reid is a long and active forward that excels on the break and scores mostly inside the arc. He is a good rebounder and capable multiple position defender as well with very good upside.
