NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State University graduate Jordan Reed (Philadelphia, Pa.) inked his first professional basketball contract to play for KB Trepça in Kosovo. Reed is the fifth player who played for TSU during Dana Ford's head coaching tenure to sign a pro deal.
“What a great opportunity for a great young man,” Ford said. “We are very proud of Jordan and all of his accomplishments both on the court as well as off. He will be a fantastic addition to the KB Trepça organization.”
Reed, who graduated from TSU in 2017, suited up for the Tigers during the 2016-17 season after redshirting in 2015-16. Helping TSU post a 17-13 record as a redshirt senior, the Philadelphia, Pa. native put up 8.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in his lone season on the court in Nashville.
Last season, Reed reached 1,000 career points at the Division I level including points scored during his first three collegiate seasons at Binghamton University in New York.
Reed, who had two double-doubles for the Tigers in 2016-17, posted a season-high 23 points to go with nine rebounds in TSU’s road win at Middle Tennessee on Nov. 19, 2016.
“I just want to thank everyone on the TSU staff and everyone on campus who had a hand in my success,” Reed said.
