Zach HerringCorrespondent IIApril 13, 2011

Jarmal Reid, 6'7", 230 lbs, is a small forward who currently attends Columbia High School in Decatur, Georgia. Reid has great upside and is known for his ability to score. Reid has good three point range and would fit in with Buzz Williams offensive style very well.

Reid is ranked 73th on ESPNU 100 Class of 2012.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Jarmal recently.
