Coach Mark Turgeon’s 2014 recruiting class is the gift that keeps on giving.

Maryland signee Trayvon Reed was selected to play in the Jordan Brand Classic Regional Game. Reed’s selection marks the third player in the 2014 class to play in a major high school All-Star game. Romelo Trimble and Dion Wiley both played in the Under Armour Elite 24 game in Brooklyn this past summer and Trimble will play in the prestigious McDonald’s All-American Game. Having four top 100 players has its advantages.

There are three games that make up the Jordan Brand Classic: the International game, the Regional game, and the national Jordan Brand Classic. Reed will play in the Regional game on a team that features Terry Larrier (VCU commit), Abdul Malik-Abu (N.C. State commit), and Shavar Newkirk (St. Joseph’s commit).

Reed has transformed into a stellar talent over the course of this season at Life Center Academy. His high school coach Pervis Ellison has worked wonders with Reed and now Reed is in a position to be a productive Big Ten player for Maryland in the fall.
