Reed Excited About The Razorbacks

Former Camden Fairview star Dominique Reed (6-4, 185, 4.3), now at Coffeyville, Kan., Community College, has an offer from the Razorbacks and is in Fayetteville Thursday to visit Arkansas.

Former Camden Fairview and current Coffeyville, Kan., Community College star Dominique Reed – one of the junior college ranks fastest wide receivers - arrived in Fayetteville on Thursday with a chance to live out a childhood dream of playing college football for Arkansas.

Reed (6-4, 185, 4.35) will be on hand for an unofficial visit at the same time the Razorbacks are hosting their final Elite Camp of the summer.

“I am looking just checking out the schools and the facilities and being around the coaches and players,” Reed said. “I want to find out how they might use me and what the future looks like down there.”

Reed caught 47 passes for 818 yards and 10 touchdowns while earning second-team All-Jayhawk Conference honors as a freshman at Coffeyville in 2012 before sitting out last season and redshirting.

“It's been great for me here at Coffeyville because I have grown as a person and a player,” Reed said. “I think I have had great coaching and gotten better both with my hands catching the ball and running routes. I've always had the speed and nobody can catch me if I get in the open field.”

Reed has offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, Southern Miss, Bowling Green, Louisiana-Lafayette and UCA.

The offer from the Razorbacks came in the past month and he is also getting interest from defending national champion Florida State, Miami, Minnesota, Iowa State and others.

“It was great to get one from the home state team,” Reed said. “I've always wanted to be a Razorback. I didn't get the chance out of high school because I didn't have the grades, but I've worked hard to get this second chance.

“I'm looking forward to getting to know the new coaches. They are different coaches from when I was in high school.”

Arkansas wide receivers coach Michael Smith is heading up Reed's recruitment.

“He's a really cool guy and got me thinking about committing,” Reed said.

Reed is the cousin of former Razorback tailback and cornerback DeAnthony Curtis.

“DeAnthony loved it up there and he would love to see me play there,” Reed said.
