Reed was recruited to Florida as a quarterback. In high school, he was a standout quarterback who led New London (Connecticut) to an undefeated season in 2007.
As a junior in high school, Reed completed 122-of-222 passes for 1,706 yards and had 28 touchdown passes compared to just two interceptions. He also ran for 370 yards and had eight touchdowns.
Reed ended the season on a low note after being benched in the Sugar Bowl for a poor attitude, but that should not cloud Reed's breakout season. The junior was forced to play inline at times, but he projects as a move or Joker tight end in the NFL due to his smoothness in space and natural catch and run abilities. Aaron Hernandez is a special player in the NFL, but the similarities between the two far exceed the college both attended.
