is run at Robert Morris because they play up and down and that fits my style,” Reed said. “I got a good feeling
on my visit and the coach (Andrew Toole) just signed a new contract, so I know he’ll be there for a while to coach me.”“The coaches said they can play me at the 1 or 2 positions, so we’ll see how it works out,” Reed
