5-Star Center Efton Reid Delays Making Decision

The Efton Reid Watch will continue for at least another day.

The 2021 5-star center from IMG Academy was scheduled to make his college decision on Thursday but that will not happen. Reid’s mother tweeted late Thursday that her son’s decision would be postponed.

The question now is who will benefit from this delay? Throughout the day, we were hearing that Reid was wavering on his decision and at one point had no idea who to pick. Prior to Reid delaying his decision, Florida State was rumored to be landing this elite talent as recruiting experts all forecasted him heading to Leonard Hamilton’s program.

That obviously didn’t happen today which is good news for the other teams still in the mix.

A national recruiting source tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he believes this is down to three teams- (no order) Pitt, Florida State and LSU. Our source tells us that he believes Ohio State is out and that “Virginia has been out for months.” The program that might benefit from this delay is LSU, which we’re told has made up a lot of ground recently with Reid.

No word now on when this big announcement will be made so the Efton Reid Watch will continue into Friday.

This kid has been recruited for years. He sets a date a week in advance to announce his choice and still cant make a decision.

Now a school is considered a major player for him ( LSU) and that school’s head coach is still under a current FBI investigation for recruiting illegalities.

Makes you wonder how LSU is now a favorite to get him – well not really – we all know what’s probably going on.

If the NCAA changes the rules to make that legal? I 100% agree, Pay the young man. Until that change happens legally, your suggestion violates the law.
Pitt is in a deep enough hole already with certain athletes breaking laws.
I don’t think breaking those rules is where they should go Nor do I believe they would want a young mans first lesson in college athletics be ,,, How to break the law and cheat the system.
