Jarmal Reid is 'Open to All Schools'

Posted by DeAnte Mitchell
Jarmal Reid a 6-foot-7 forward out of Georgia has been a hot commodity to just about every power six conference.

Reid holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Charlotte, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

West Virginia has always seemed to be the program in the lead for the Columbia H.S. star but he said, "I'm pretty much open to all the schools I listed."

That list includes Alabama, Charlotte, Florida, Georgia, Marquette, Ole Miss, South Florida and West Virginia.

Alabama, Marquette and South Florida, however, are really picking up in Reid's recruitment to possibly land the gifted wing.

Reid, a developing wing, is certainly improving as he enters his senior year in high school.

He has always been a strong rebounder at the forward position with his strength and athleticism but the versatile forward is now an effective passer on the wing as well.

Not to mention, Reid is a capable shooter from the outside and with his ability to slash, he's a nightmare on offense.

Headed into the summer, Reid will be continue working on his game as well as continuing to shorten his list. He plans to make his decision, "by the end of the summer."

Academics, the atmosphere and coaching will play a huge part in Reid's recruitment. Those three are the main characteristics he's looking for in a school.
