Reid was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and was the son of Herman Reid Sr., who played football in the 1960s with the Baltimore Colts. Reid played football himself in his early years as a defensive player and his gridiron skills even caught the attention of the Virginia Tech Hokies, but he decided to stick with playing basketball.[1] Reid starred at Kempsville High School in Virginia Beach, being named the 1986 Gatorade and USA Today Player of the Year. He certified his reputation by being named most valuable player (MVP) of both the 1986 McDonald's Game and the Capital Classic.

College career[edit]

During his freshman year at UNC, he was featured on the March 2, 1987 cover of Sports Illustrated magazine. During his sophomore season, he was named a consensus first-team All-American when he averaged 18 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.[2]

Reid was named to the 1988 United States men's Olympic basketball team to compete at the 1988 Summer Olympics. He played in six games and averaged 6 points per game.[2]
