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.
Mama Bear 🐻 has spoken! Efton Reid’s commitment has been postponed. Stay tuned!

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.
