Tennessee State has added their third player this spring, Jaylen Reid. Reed, the son of former Charlotte Hornet J.R. Reed, signed his letter of intent Monday, according to Herald Online.

The 6’7″ forward was highly coveted in the OVC, with SEMO and Austin Peay offing scholarships, as well as former Tennessee State head coach John Cooper at Miami (OH).

Reid told the paper he made his decision on a visit three weeks ago.

“When I first went there, I fell in love with the campus, the players, the coaches,” Reid said. “The guys went hard on the court; that was another thing I loved. I really enjoyed myself.’

As a senior at Rock Hill high school, Reid averaged 16 points, eight rebounds and two steals per game, made all-state and played in the Clash of the Carolinas All-Star game this season. Tigers head coach Travis Williams was thrilled with the addition.

“His ceiling is unbelievable, he has such a high ceiling,” said Williams, “and the best is yet to come. I believe he has a bright future here in our program.”
