There are some pretty insane athletes in the class of 2018. Zion Williamson may have all the attention, and deservedly so, but we shouldn’t forget about Nazreon “Naz” Reid. John Calipari sure hasn’t, as told by Adam Zagoria:
Reid met this past week with Kentucky coach John Calipari, who has tracked Reid for several years now out of the same high school that produced former Wildcats guard Isaiah Briscoe.
“It’s a winning team,” he said. “‘[Their message is] just stay focused, run the floor, do what I do best. Be the best version of me.”
Asked if Kentucky – who had assistant Tony Barbee on hand – might offer him after evaluating him this spring, Reid said, “Yes.”
You can read Zagoria’s full breakdown of Reid’s recruitment here. Naz is currently ranked 14th overall in the class of 2018 by 247Sports. At 6’10”, 220 lbs., your mind’s eye might picture a Marcus Lee-esque rim protecting specialist.
You would be wrong:
Tell me you don’t want this kid.
