Jordan Reever Still Awaits BYU Offer; LSU Favored

The two teammates "tripped" to BYU last weekend knowing little about what they would see or find in Provo -- hoping the Cougars head football coach would at least offer them scholarships to add to their growing lists. One returned home happy. The other is still waiting.

Jordan Reever, a three-year star quarterback from South Garland High in Texas, told that Cougar head coach Gary Crowton explained he was waiting to see if another LDS quarterback from Arizona – visiting next weekend – would commit before he could extend a new offer.

"Even if they do offer, I don't think I'll commit until I've taken all my trips. LSU is still my favorite." Reever has scheduled a recruiting visit Jan. 30 to LSU, but coaches there have told him he is No. 3 on their quarterback priority list.

His wide receiver teammate, Antwaun Harris, received a formal offer from BYU's head coach.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Reever had 6,300 career passing yards and 72 touchdown passes. Last season, he dislocated his elbow which kept him sidelined for five games. Despite that, he still threw for 1,717 yards and 19 touchdowns.

As far as his actual visit went, Reever said, "All around, it was a good trip even though I didn't come away with an offer. I just have to be patient and see what happens.

"BYU and Provo was very beautiful. We had a lot of fun. I met with Coach Crowton for about 45 minutes. He was telling me he wants to get his offense back to where it was as the No. 1 offense in the country."

Reever added that Crowton explained what type of players he was looking for in his quarterbacks and receivers. "He has a great offensive plan. His spread offense will put up a lot of numbers and points. I could definitely see myself in that offense. A lot of concepts he was talking about, I think I could do well," Reever continued.

"I also got to meet another high school quarterback who has committed to BYU (Jacob Bower from Idaho). He was really friendly. He talked a lot about BYU, not much about football.

Meanwhile, it is a waiting game of sorts for Reever and BYU. "Coach Crowton said after this next week he'd know where they stand (as far as a scholarship offer). We'll just have to wait and see."
