OXFORD, Miss. -- Cody Reed, a 2013 left-handed pitcher from Northwest Mississippi Community College, committed to Ole Miss on Sunday night.
Reed, a rising sophomore with the Rangers, will sign in November and have three years to play two for the Rebels. This past season for Northwest, Reed was 8-2 with a 3.78 ERA. He struck out 65 and allowed 56 hits and 32 walks in 64.1 innings.
On March 31, he threw a seven-inning no-hitter against Mississippi Delta Community College, needing just 81 pitches for the noteworthy outing.
From what I heard on Sunday, Reed was somewhat of a late riser, throwing in the low-to-mid 80s out of Horn Lake High School, but is now pushing into the low 90s and could be a draft consideration next June.
Reed is Ole Miss' first JUCO commit for the 2013 signing class. The Rebels have nine high school commits -- eight of which are ranked in the top 300 nationally by Perfect Game.
Reed's teammate, Jeremy Massie, will be a member of the Ole Miss team this coming academic year. He's a left-handed pitcher, as well.
