The stepfather of Maryland basketball recruit Trayvon Reed said Tuesday that his son's move from the Atlanta suburbs to a Christian-based private school in New Jersey was based largely on getting the 7-1 center into the kind of academic environment that would allow him to be eligible to play as a freshman in 2014-15. Reed, who is considered one of the top high school centers in the country and is rated as high as No. 6 at his position nationally, enrolled Monday at the Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. Daniel Moore said his son had initially planned to go to a school in Indiana, but the family learned last week that the school didn't have room for him. “I was a little late getting that together," Moore said.

Trayvon Reed, the 7-foot-1 center who was not allowed to enroll at Maryland after his arrest outside a College Park convenience store last month, has committed to play at Auburn, according to multiple media reports. Reed, who was set to become part of a top-10 recruiting class that will be the Terps' first in the Big Ten Conference, was arrested July 30 for theft, resisting arrest and second-degree assault after an incident with an undercover police officer. Because the officer suffered two broken fingers in the altercation, one of Reed's two assault charges is considered a felony.

BURLINGTON, N.J. - Nikki Reed knew she had to move. Though she had lived her entire life in Mobile, Ala., Reed watched her oldest son, Jacoby, go from being a promising high school basketball player to being sent away to state prison at age 17 for robbery. Reed didn't want her younger son, Trayvon, to get caught up in the culture of their Down the Bay neighborhood. That decision to move, first to Montgomery, Ala., for three years before settling a little more than two years ago outside Atlanta in Snellville, Ga., helped put Trayvon Reed on a path that will land him at the University of Maryland this summer.

Trayvon Reed's career as a Maryland basketball player has ended before it even began, after his arrest Wednesday night in College Park caused the athletic department to prohibit him from enrolling in classes. In a brief statement released Friday by the athletic department, Maryland men's coach Mark Turgeon said “Trayvon failed to meet the standards that are required by the university athletics department.” When reached by telephone, Turgeon declined to comment on the charges pending against the 7-foot-1 center, including second-degree assault, second degree assault of a police officer, theft under $100 and resisting arrest.

The Maryland women's basketball team recently landed one of the most inexperienced players in the country. That's not a bad thing, though - it's her potential and her pedigree that caught their eyes. Aja Ellison, the daughter of former NBA player Pervis Ellison and former Maryland sprinter Timi Crawford, committed to the Terps on Sunday. Ellison has only been playing organized basketball since 2010, but has shown huge improvement and plenty of collegiate potential. “She obviously has the genes - athleticism never was an issue,” said Ron Kessler, Ellison's basketball coach at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. “We just worked on her skill set, fine tuning her ability with a basketball on the court.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. It took one viewing of Class of 2015 guard prospect Malik Ellison to see his versatile skill set and potential, but it was the third viewing of Ellison this year in which he was finally able to put his entire game together. The junior wing from Life Center Academy (N.J.) had a big game against Maryland commit Jared Nickens and Westtown on Saturday as he exploded for a very efficient 22 points.

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.
