Efton Reid first popped up on the radar of Kentucky basketball fans as a possible reclassification candidate to 2020 while the Wildcats were in search of a true center to man the paint for the 2020-21 season. Ultimately, Reid ended up staying in the 2021 class, and Kentucky landed star Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr.

That doesn’t mean Reid isn’t still a UK target. Though there wasn’t much buzz surrounding the Wildcats and the Virginia big man’s recruitment over the summer and fall, the Herald-Leader was told in November that UK has remained in contact with Reid throughout the year, and he’s still seen as a possibility for the 2021 class.

There are still some unanswered questions about Reid’s NBA upside, but there’s no doubting his ability as a big, skilled center at the high school level, and he has a game that should translate well to college basketball.

“I think he’s the most skilled big man in the country,” his former high school coach, Curt Kassab, told the Herald-Leader after last season. “There are some really athletic post players, but they don’t have his skill. I think that’s why he’s such a priority for so many schools.”
