RECRUITING: Gators still favorite for Reed

Panama City Bay quarterback Bert Reed has developed a reputation for making plays, especially with the ball in his hands. He participated at both quarterback and wide receiver at the Friday Night Lights camp.

"I started at quarterback and got some reps at receiver," Reed said. "It was a fun camp. I'd give it a nine. There were a lot of talented players out there, especially on defense. There were a lot of good receivers out there too. It was fun to play with all of those good players at once."

"I worked with Coach (Dan) Mullen, who is really a perfectionist," Reed said laughing. "He'll get on you. He really wants everybody to get things just right. I can appreciate that. He's really a good guy."

Reed said that the Friday Night Lights experience didn't do anything to change his perception of the Florida program that he has publicly stated is his favorite.

"It didn't raise them or hurt them," he added. "It was a good experience. It really was. I just don't think that it was something that I'll use in my decision. They're still the favorite. For me, it was just a fun camp."

He said that he'll spend the remainder of the summer getting ready for the Tornadoes opening season opponent- Pensacola Woodham.

"I'm just really going to concentrate on getting ready for school and the season," he said. "I'm not going to any other camps or visit any schools."
