Reed is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound defensive lineman from Columbus, Georgia, where he plays for Carver. The Tigers finished last season 12-2 with a 35-28 loss to Benedictine in the Georgia High School 4A State Championship game.
Reed is ranked as a top-30 player nationally by On3 Recruiting, and he’s the No. 228 overall prospect on the 247Sports Composite. He chose to attend LSU over Auburn, Ohio State, Clemson, and Miami. The Buckeyes were considered to be the favorite for a while before coach Brian Kelly swooped in and nabbed the super talented defensive lineman.
Reed becomes the ninth commit of the 2023 class so far, which ranks 15th in the country after adding a trio of commitments on Monday.
