Reynolds Takes in Illinois

Former Rutgers LB commit Elias Reynolds parted ways with the Scarlet Knights just a couple of weeks ago, but he's already out on the recruiting trail in search of a college destination.

Just two weeks after decommitting from Rutgers, Brooklyn (NY) Poly Prep LB Elias Reynolds took an official visit to Illinois.  The 6'2", 235 pound backer also holds a handful of ACC offers, but made his first trip to Champaign.

Reynolds said the experience gave him an opportunity to get to know the coaching staff better and get a feel for the University of Illinois campus.

"The visit went great actually being that it was my first time in Champaign as well as on campus," he said.  "I liked the atmosphere. It was very welcoming. Coach Cubit and his staff are down to earth people, and I like the vision they have for the future of the program."

Both the players and the coaches alike took their turns recruiting Reynolds during his time on campus.  Their interactions, albeit brief, helped Reynolds feel more comfortable with the people involved in the football program.

"The players are dudes who I can see myself playing around because they all work towards a goal collectively, and they treated me like family on my visit. Coach cubit and his staff think I can make an immediate impact and would love to have me on board."

Reynolds did say that he's still considering Rutgers in addition to a handful of other power five schools.  He doesn't want to rush his decision, but said if he feels that the fit is right, that he could choose prior to February.

"(I'm considering) Rutgers, Pitt, PSU, and South Carolina," he said. "Right now my decision time is signing day, but if anything happens before then I guess people see or hear about it."
