Trayvon Reed to Not Enroll at Maryland
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Freshman center Trayvon Reed will not enroll at the University of Maryland, the athletics department announced today.
“Trayvon failed to meet the standards that are required by the University of Maryland athletics department.” Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon said.
“I regret that I was unable to meet the responsibilities that were expected of me from Coach Turgeon and the University of Maryland,” Reed said.
“We want to express our gratitude and appreciation to Coach Turgeon and the Maryland basketball program,” said Daniel Moore, Reed’s stepfather. “We regret that Trayvon has to leave Maryland and miss out on this great opportunity.”
According to the Baltimore Sun, Reed was arrested Wednesday night after an incident in his home state of Georgia. The seven footer was charged with two counts of second degree assault, theft under $100 and resisting arrest.
The Terps will now count on fellow incoming freshman Michal Cekovsky and sophomore Damonte Dodd for help in the low post. Seniors Evan Smotrycz and Jon Graham (Calvert Hall) cold also provide help in the front court.
