Last Friday it was 5-star running back Michael Dyer. This Friday, Auburn may be on the verge of picking up another big-time commit with 4-star receiver Trovon Reed set to announce his decision.
Reed, who Rivals.com ranks the No. 1 prospect in the state of Louisiana, will announce his decision at 10:15 a.m. CT at Thibodaux High School in conjunction with accepting an invitation to the U.S. Army All-American game.
"The U.S. Army All-American Bowl presentation is supposed to last about 15 minutes and he's going to say something after that," Thibodaux head coach Dennis Lorio said.
Reed chose Friday, Nov. 13 for the announcement because it's his late mother's birthday. Roszaina Johnson lost a four-month battle with stomach cancer in March.
The finalists for Reed are Auburn, LSU and Oregon.
Reed has visited Auburn at least four times this year including the weekend of the West Virginia game when he spent a lot of time with AU receivers coach Trooper Taylor.
"Me and Trooper are real tight. I look at him like a dad," Reed said in September.
Reed officially visited Oregon Oct. 30 and has made several unofficial visits to LSU. He has scheduled an official visit to Auburn Nov. 27 for the weekend of the Iron Bowl.
Reed is also ranked the No. 5 wide receiver in the country and the No. 37 overall recruit.
Reed has offers from all of his finalists as well as USC, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Cal, Arkansas and many others.
