DT Reed down to two SEC schools

By Dave Hooker

Jarran Reed has decommitted from Ole Miss and is down to two SEC powerhouses.

The defensive tackle from Scooba (Miss.) East said he is now considering Alabama and Florida after canceling a visit to Ole Miss this weekend.

"The coaching staff," Reed said when asked what he liked about the Crimson Tide. "The players that they have. Their ability to win."

Reed took an unofficial visit to Alabama this weekend.

"It wasn’t anything really," Reed said. "I just went to hang out."

Reed said he is also considering Florida.

"I like the whole thing about Florida, where Florida is at," Reed said of the Gators. "I like their coaching staff and I like their defense. We're very compatible."

Reed (6-foot-4, 305) had been committed to Ole Miss since Dec. 10. He said he will announce his decision during a press conference on signing day at his school.
