"Wanted you to know Reid picked up his first offer today," Rick Worstell, the player's father, said. "Akron and Coach (Terry) Bowden let us know this morning they were extending an offer."
Worstell, 6-foot-3, 205-pounds, has several other programs in contact, and many will be at the school this moth to see him throw.
As a junior, Worstell threw for 932 yards and a 58% completion rate, after missing the first part of the season due to illness. He will be expected to throw more this season, following the graduation of five-star tailback Brionte Dunn.
