Just days after entering the transfer portal, former SEMO guard Eric Reed Jr. has heard from a long list of schools and has already planned several visits.
Reed told The Portal Report that he has heard from the following: UMBC, Nicholls State, Mississippi State, Texas Southern, Western Kentucky, Tulsa, Wichita State, Colorado State, Cal Baptist, UIC, and more.
Reed averaged 16.1 points per game for SEMO this season, and is a career 40% three-point shooter at the division one level. Prior to his time at SEMO, he played at the junior college level.
“The ones that I can tell are really hard on me are Mississippi State, Texas Southern, Western Kentucky, and Tulsa,” he told The Portal Report.
Reed has a visit to Mississippi State on Thursday, April 28, and “depending on how that goes,” he will also take visits to Texas Southern and Western Kentucky.
“It gives you a big opportunity,” Reed said about the portal. “Even though I might leave this conference, the OVC offered a lot for me. They put me on the pedestal to where I can get these bigger opportunities. It goes hand-in-hand. Being a great player, you’re going to get looks professionally and from other colleges, so it has definitely helped me a lot.”
