High school career[edit]

Reid grew up in Asbury Park, New Jersey and attended Roselle Catholic High School.[1] Reid was a 5-star recruit in high school, being ranked the best power forward in New Jersey and the third best power forward in the United States, as well as the 15th best player in his class by 247 sports. On September 12, 2017, Reid committed to play college basketball at LSU.[2] Reid later said "What drew me to the school is Coach Wade, (assistant) Coach (Greg) Heiar, all the other coaches.”[3] Following his senior season, in which he averaged 14.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game, Reid was invited to the 2018 McDonald's All-American Boys Game. During the game, he scored 15 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, and one block while playing for 20 minutes.[4] Reid scored 22 points as Roselle Catholic defeated Don Bosco Prep in the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions.[5]
