For ESPN No. 11 ranked high school junior Nazreon Reid, Kentucky, St. John’s, and dark horse Rutgers are in the mix for his services.


The 6-11 forward averaged 10.2 points and 7.7 rebounds last season as a sophomore for Roselle Catholic High School (NJ).


Reid was even more dominant this season, including producing a monster 24-point, 11-rebound, 10-assist, 5 block game at the HoopHall Classic in January.


“I was able to get position and score the basketball,” Reid told Rivals.com of his big game. “My passing is a big weapon. Not many bigs with my size are as unselfish as I am so I think it’s a tremendous advantage for me.”


Though he doesn’t yet have an offer from the Kentucky, coach John Calipari has shown keen interest in the big man.


“I love their style of play,” Reid told Scout of the Wildcats. “They all work as a team, everybody touches the ball, and they work as a unit. I just like what they do. They are just telling me to keep playing hard.”


St. John’s has also been hot for the NYC metro-area product.


“I have a good relationship with them,” Reid said of the Red Storm. “They contact me to see how the season is going, and try to get me to games and things like that, so it is a good relationship.”


And Rutgers is on Reid’s radar as well, even though the New Jersey school is a long shot to land the talented star.


“They are contacting me and staying up on my season and just telling me how I could change the program if I came to their school,” Reid said of the Scarlet Knights.


Wherever Reid ends up playing his college ball, there are certain things he is looking for in a future program.


“Education is most important to me, and then winning,” said Reid. “I have been winning since seventh grade and I hate losing.”


To date, Reid has offers from the likes of Kansas, Louisville, Oklahoma, Villanova, Wichita State, Syracuse, St. John’s and Rutgers, among others.
