Reed announced his decision Friday, joining safety Matt Elam and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd in skipping their senior season.
Reed, a junior from New London, Conn., led the team in receiving this season. He had 45 receptions for 559 yards and three touchdowns. He was a first-team, All-SEC selection by The Associated Press.
He says ``now is the right time to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL.''
Floyd and Elam announced their intentions following a loss in the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday night.
Coach Will Muschamp says all three players ``are all getting a chance to realize that dream. ... We wish them the very best of luck in the pursuit of their dreams.''
