Late-blooming Birmingham (AL) Mountain Brook Quarterback Tribble Reese is visiting his third ACC school in two weeks, as he is in Raleigh, NC this weekend on an official visit to NC State.

"Tribble is visiting NC State this weekend," Mountain Brook Coach Joey Jones said. "He took his first official visit to Wake Forest last weekend and then went to Clemson for an unofficial visit after that one."

Reese had a terrific senior season, passing for 4,425 yards and 24 touchdowns in his first season as a starter. It's led to numerous regional offers.

"Clemson, NC State, Wake Forest, Mississippi, Mississippi State, and Baylor have all offered him a scholarship and Notre Dame is flying down on Monday to see him," Coach Jones said. "LSU's still evaluating and they may offer too. Almost all of those that offered said he's the #1 guy on their board."

What's making the 6'3 210 pound Reese such an intriguing prospect?

"Everybody just loves him after watching his film. He's got a strong arm and is very accurate. Tribble is also a kid who can hurt you with his feet. He's a high-major prospect without a doubt."

NC State Offensive Coordinator Noel Mazzone is recruiting Reese for the Wolfpack.

"Coach Mazzone came by and offered him a couple of weeks ago. He's a great recruiter and really has done a good job with Tribble. I've known him since his days at Auburn and he's a great coach and person."

Tribble is fully qualified with a 3.6 GPA and 1360 on SAT. Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney is recruiting Reese to Tiger Town. We will continue to keep you updated on Tribble Reese, right up through signing day 2004.
