Trayvon Reed wanted a fresh start.
The former Maryland signee committed to Auburn Thursday after meeting with Bruce Pearl and the rest of his staff.
"It was good meeting with him," Reed says. "I didn't know he was that cool of a person before sitting down talking to him. He's a genuine person."
He signed with Maryland out of high school, but was unable to enroll at Maryland after he was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, second-degree assault of a police officer and theft under $100 on July 30. He has a court hearing scheduled for Sept. 15 in Hyattsville, Md.
