Nate Oats continues to do work on the recruiting trail, nabbing a second five star in the 2024 class in rangy wing Derrion Reid.

Blake Byler over at SI has this to say about him:

At 6-foot-7, Reid is a physical forward with tremendous athleticism and explosive leaping ability. He plays with tons of aggression and scores the ball well around the basket.

He’s a versatile defender with a rangy build, and shoots the ball decently well from beyond the arc as his 3-point shot has continued to develop. He projects as a big wing in Oats’ system that has all the tools to be a major two-way player.

Reid has the length that Oats values on the wing, but the three ball will need to come along for him to be a key player in the system. In any case, this is another huge pull for Nate Oats as he continues his pursuit of a national title in Tuscaloosa.

Roll Tide!
