2023 F/C Matt Reed is in line to become the next big recruit out of the state of Texas, and he has quite the game to back it up. The ISchool Prep standout in Dallas, is up for the challenge and when it all said and done his imprint on the state could be one that has a lasting positive impact. He is a gym rat who loves the challenge of proving the doubters wrong and it is only a matter of time before he takes off on a national level. 

Reed’s game can be summed up in one word and that is consistent. The minute that he steps on the floor he creates unbelievable matchup problems for his opponents. Standing 6’9 and 220 pounds he is as an elite talent from a skill standpoint that you will find at his size. He can catch and finish in the post with ease around the basket. He has a natural feel for the game and does not force the issue when has the ball in his hands. He understands how to keep the ball high and away from smaller defenders and can also spin baseline to avoid double teams. He has a soft touch on his jump shot and has put in the work over the past year to increase his range on his jump shot. He is now able to catch and face away from the basket and consistently knock down shots from three which makes it even more difficult to matchup against him. He is a great passer out of the post. He is big enough to see over the double teams and finds him teammates in scoring positions. 

He is just as good on the defensive end of the floor as he is offensively. He plays extremely hard and takes pride in playing defense. It is common to see him diving on the floor for loose balls as well as getting a key defensive rebound in a crucial part of the game. He will do whatever is needed for his team to win. He moves his feet well and does not gamble and get silly fouls. He protects the rim very well and uses his body well from a defensive standpoint. He has the skillset to compete at about any high-level university and many of them are targeting him as a top priority for the 2023 recruiting class. 

His outstanding play and development over the past year has landed him a scholarship offer from the prestigious Georgetown University as well as Cleveland St and TCU. He is just scratching the surface in terms of recruitment, and we fully expect for this list to explode over the next few months as he heads into his winter season.
