Maryland freshman center Trayvon Reed will miss between eight and twelve weeks with a fractured ankle, the program announced in a release on Tuesday evening. 

According to the release, Reed suffered the injury in April while he was still in high school and it was discovered during a "pre-participation physical" at the university.

The injury will not require surgery.

Reed stands 7-1, making him the defensive anchor of Maryland's 2014 recruiting class. He was brought in by head coach Mark Turgeon to be a rim-protecting presence with the understanding that his offensive game would need to develop in order for him to be a contributor on that end of the floor at the college level.

Now this injury becomes a setback, as a chunk of the time he would have been able to spend developing this summer has been lost. 

Reed is part of a five-man recruiting class for the Terrapins in 2014 along with guards Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley, swingman Jared Nickens, and forward Michal Cekovsky.
