According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, Reed will spend a semester at Elevate Academy in Florida in order to qualify and join head coach Bruce Pearl and the Tigers following the first semester of the school year.
It was announced earlier this month that Reed would not enroll at Maryland following an arrest in College Park in late July.
According to police records, Reed was arrested on Wednesday, July 30 on four charges, among them theft of less than $100, two counts of second-degree assault, including one of an officer, and resisting or interfering with an arrest.
A court date is set for Sept. 15 in Hyattsville, Md.
Pearl, in the first season of his first head coaching job since he was hit with a show-cause penalty for recruiting infractions while at Tennessee, has made August a big month for Auburn recruiting.
Four-star forwards Danjel Purifoy and Horace Spencer have committed within the past week, as has three-star guard T.J. Dunans.
