NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee State head men’s basketball coach Dana Ford announced the signing of shooting guard Darreon Reddick on Friday.

“Darreon is a great kid who excels in the classroom as well as on the court,” Ford said. “Darreon is a combo-guard that can play at both guard positions in our system, and he comes from an AAU program (Southwest Illinois Jets) in which the director is a Tennessee State alum, so we look forward to Darreon showing pride in our program.”

Reddick was the top scorer for Belleville East HS this season and the three-year starter averaged 13.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.63 assists per game. He also led East in assists (79) and steals (43), helping the Lancers win a regional before they lost in the sectional to state tournament qualifier Edwardsville.

Rated a two-star recruit by scout.com, Reddick averaged 13.6 points as a junior and 8.1 points as a sophomore.

The 6-foot-3 Belleville, Ill. native also received offers from Bradley, Depaul and Indiana State among others, but chose to become Ford’s first commitment as head coach of the Tigers.
