Trayvon Reed, a 7-foot-1, 235-pound freshman center who is one of the centerpieces in Maryland’s top 10 recruiting class, will miss summer workouts with a fractured right ankle, Terps men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon said Tuesday.
Reed suffered the injury, which will keep him off the court “eight to 12 weeks,” in April.
After showing up at the Capital Classic all-star game in Northern Virginia in a walking boot on what he said was a “sprained right ankle," Reed said he got hurt “running bases” at the Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J.
The four-star recruit, who is originally from Mobile, Ala., and also spent time outside Atlanta, finished up high school playing for former No. 1 NBA draft pick and college star Pervis Ellison.
