Michigan power forward Tarris Reed Jr. announced on social media Wednesday that he is transferring to UConn.

"I chose UConn for its winning culture, commitment to player development and coaching style," Reed also told On3. "Coach Hurley's tough coaching style is known for pushing players into uncomfortable situations, making the uncomfortable seem comfortable. UConn provides the ideal setting and coaching for me to maximize my potential both on and off the court."

Reed attended the Huskies' championship parade on Saturday in Hartford while on an official visit.

A 6-foot-10, 265-pound sophomore, Reed averaged 9.0 points, a team-best 7.2 rebounds to go along with 1.4 blocks in 32 games (31 starts) this past season for the Wolverines.
