Reeves On Final Two

2012 defensive back Armani Reeves of Catholic Memorial High in West Roxbury, Mass., is down to two – and talks about both of his options inside.

One of the top uncommitted Northeast prospects, four-star DB Armani Reeves has been pretty busy over the past several days.

Saturday Reeves had an in-home visit with Michigan head coach Brady Hoke and on Monday with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and his staff.

"They are both great coaches," Reeves said. "And I know the rivalry is there between Michigan and Ohio State."

A passion that is shared by both schools – but that's not the only reason they are at the top of his list.

"These two men [Hoke and Meyer] are humble, family oriented guys, and getting an education is important to each."

But that isn't it.

"They both strive for the best," Reeves said. "And the goal is obviously the same on the field."

To sum it up, Reeves phrases how he feels simply.

"Playing for either would be an honor," Reeves said. "Now I just have to figure out what is best for me."

The visits don't stop there though for the talented Catholic Memoial High defensive back. On Tuesday, Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison will visit Reeves in-home.

"Coach Mattison is a character," Reeves said. "And I have a great time with him every time we meet."

He added, "So I know the visit will be interesting."

Recently, Reeves took his official visit to both Big 10 foes, and came away impressed.

"Both visits were better than I expected," Reeves said. "Which doesn't help me make my decision."

He continued, "I'm just blessed to be in this situation so I'm going to enjoy it until it is time for me to start working to win championships."

There are a few things that set the two programs apart for him.

"Ohio State has the exact major I want,' Reeves said. "And the coaches are top notch."

And the Wolverines?

"Michigan is a great school," Reeves said. "Plus playing for Mattison would be a treat, he knows what it takes to be successful."

And success is something that Reeves hopes to achieve, no matter where he chooses to play his collegiate ball. Stay on Scout.com for the latest as Reeves draws closer to a decision, and as signing day approaches.
