6-7, 250-pound offensive tackle prospect Garrett Reynolds says “UNC, Marshall, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Vanderbilt” are the schools that have been consistently keeping in contact with him since September 1st. As has been the case for several months, Clemson and Virginia Tech are his top 2.
“Yes sir,” Reynolds replied, asked if Clemson and Virginia Tech were still his top 2 schools. “I really like the coaching staffs.”
Reynolds has yet to take in a game at Virginia Tech, but he has seen the Hokies play on television.
“They’re doing great,” Reynolds said. “They’re a good team. They don’t quit and they are hard working.”
Though Reynolds has a good idea of which schools he likes, he’s not sure when he will make official visits.
“I have no idea,” Reynolds said when asked if he knew when he would set his official visits. “It might be after the season. I don’t really know. I’m not thinking too much about it right now.”
What Reynolds is focusing on is finishing out his senior season in strong fashion. Carter High School is 2-6 on the year with 2 games remaining. This season, Reynolds has played left offensive tackle and defensive end. Playing left tackle was an adjustment, but he feels to have gotten a good grasp on the position he could possibly play on the next level.
“In our last game I felt like I moved my feet a lot better,” Reynolds said. “Moving to the left side was uncomfortable for me at the beginning because I played on the right side last year. I’ve gotten into a groove though, and I’m playing better.”
All of the schools in the mix are recruiting Reynolds as an offensive tackle. Reynolds know he has work to do to become the player he wants to be, but his hard-working mentality is surely a good start.
“I know I have a lot of hard work to do,” Reynolds said. “I work hard, and that’s one of my strengths right now. I know I have to improve probably everything. I need to work on a lot of stuff. I’ll work hard to do it.”
