The SEC is starting to take notice of Dominique Reed’s breakout season for Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College.
The two-star wide receiver and Arkansas recruiting target has caught 53 passes for 939 yards and 15 touchdowns in just 10 games this season, picking up an offer from Florida, as well as North Carolina State, South Florida and Bowling Green.
“I think (the season) has gone pretty good,” Reed said. “Of course, I could still do better.”
While Reed acknowledges that he needs to work on route running and hands, the former Camden Fairview standout said he believes he could contribute on Arkansas’ receiving corps.
Reed stands 6-foot-4, weighs 180 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.
“I feel like I can beat anybody deep and if you just get it anywhere near me I am going to be able to catch it,” Reed told Scout last month. “That’s why I am always telling my coach and my quarterback just throw it to me and I will make a play for you.”
Arkansas has not offered him, but Reed said he would be in Fayetteville for the LSU game Nov. 15. He said it would probably be an official visit.
If he came to Arkansas, Reed would be following in the footsteps of a pair of current Razorbacks – linebacker Martrell Spaight and tight end A.J. Derby – that spent time at Coffeyville before coming to Fayetteville.
Seeing the success Spaight and Derby are enjoying this season definitely makes Reed want to become a Razorback, he said. It would also mean coming back to him home state.
“It would mean a lot,” Reed said. “My family would have no problems coming to see me come play.”
