Name: Naz Reid
Team: Roselle Catholic
Stats: 14 points per game
Accolades: ESPN Top 20 player in the class of 2018. Signed LOI to LSU.
Why they’re on the list: Since the first day he stepped on the court for Roselle Catholic, Naz Reid has had coaches drooling at the mouth.
Personally, I can’t blame them. Skill wise, Reid plays like today’s prototypical big man offensively. He can post up, shoot from the perimeter and put the ball on the floor and make a move to the rim off the dribble. Defensively, he can run the floor, rebound and plays pick and roll defense with the best of them.
His ability to deliver a jaw dropping dunk or electric block is one of the main reasons fans flock to Roselle Catholic games. Make no mistake about it, Hollywood Naz is worth the price of admission.
Now that Reid is signed to LSU, he can fully focus his energy on this season and taking the team to another level. Can Naz lead RC to a state championship? Only time will tell. One thing is for certain though: watching this play out will be very entertaining.
Get your popcorn ready.
