Auburn commitment Trovon Reed talks about his upcoming visits and about his experience at the Army…
Reed Likes the Family Feel
Trovon Reed, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound receiver from Thibodaux High in La., has been one of the best players on the field, and it impressed even more when he flipped over to play corner, because he was probably the best player at that position on the squad. "It is crazy man I have never played on a team like this that has this much talent," Reed said. "But I feel so comfortable, like I fit in. I feel like my hands and my quickness are my biggest strengths. I have had a hamstring injury that has slowed me some, but I still feel pretty good." Reed picked Auburn as his school on the next level, and mostly because of his relationship with Trooper Taylor. "The relationship with the coaches. My relationship with ‘Coach Troop‘, I mean, I really like him and they made me feel like family and that was one of the main reasons." Reed also likes the offensive system that Auburn employs. "Coach Gus Malzahn is just crazy. He has never had under 500 yards a game yet, so I just feel like that I could just hop right in. Plus they need a little help at receiver, so I just feel like I can come right in and (play right away)." Still Reed would like to take a closer look at LSU before signing. "I am taking my official visit to LSU on the 23rd, you know," Reed informed. "Anything - I mean I am solid with Auburn - but anything can happen. Coaches can get fired, anything can happen, so I just got to keep my eyes open." Because of his relationship with the Auburn staff it seems that LSU would really have to make up a lot of ground to get him to switch his pledge. "Right now nothing could make me change," stated Reed. "I feel like family. I can call coach Troop and talk about anything; girl problems, anything. He is just there for me and I don't have that kind of relationship with any other coaches except Frank Wilson at LSU, and he just got there." I am sure that Reed is getting the hard sale from LSU commit Eric Reid who is his roommate in San Antonio. "Eric Reid," Reed responded when asked who his roommate was. "Me and him played against each other in high school this year and he had two."
