The Opening: Mook Reynolds

The Opening gathers 162 of the top prospects in America for one final summer camp session, and it serves as a proving ground for the best at each position. Mook Reynolds was often in the cornerback conversation at The Beaverton, Ore. event, and the hot-streak mirrors his recruitment

Shortly after the class of 2014 put pen to paper on national signing day this past February, Mook Reynolds verbally committed to do the same with Virginia Tech when the 2015 mini-holiday rolls around.

Since then, however, the four-star Greensboro (N.C.) Northern Guilford cornerback standout has been picking up even more offers and momentum from college football’s elite.

Still, the rising-senior admits it would be tough for him to not be a Hokie next year.

“I have five new offers since March, Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia, Tennessee and Ole Miss,” Reynolds said. ”They all are even with me right now, but Virginia Tech is still high up. It’s the school I’m committed to and the school I see myself at.

“I can’t say what it would take for another school to get me. I would have to visit, be amazed if they out do Virginia Tech. That would be hard.”

After a standout week at The Opening among the nation’s best, a quest to compare some of the aforementioned schools to Tech will continue. He has already seen Ole Miss and Georgia, and has plans on seeing another trio as well.

“I’ll be in Michigan July 27, I plan on getting to Tennessee and Notre Dame sometime as well,” he said.

But his recent focus has remained on the field, where he took in plenty at the top high school camp event of the summer.

“The gear, the activities we get to do, bonding with the best players, the weather is nice and not humid like the South,” Reynolds said, laughing. “Coaches treat us right, there’s a lot of media out there, so it’s a big look into the future of how college football is going to be. “
