Our final scouting report of the 2015 class takes a closer look at cornerback Mook Reynolds, who is currently enrolled and going through spring practice.

Mook Reynolds
Height: 6-0
Weight: 172
Rivals: 3-stars, #39 cornerback, #13 player in NC

Mook has cornerback skills, but right now he lacks experience at the position simply because he didn’t play it last year.  In the Tech defensive scheme, he’s used to playing a position most similar to the nickel spot, which is where he’s getting work this spring.  That’s a great move by the coaching staff.  Here’s his senior film…

Overall athleticism: I could talk about his speed and how fluid he is in the open field, or even his acceleration.  Instead, I’ll just lump
