BBD RECRUITING: Antonio Reynolds update

Linebacker Antonio Reynolds has a verbal commitment to Miami, but may still visit Kentucky...

Antonio Reynolds made a commitment to Miami back in July after being offered by the Hurricanes. He's off to a strong start to his senior season after three games. He's played one primarily as a linebacker, one primarily as a defensive end, and one where he played a little bit of both. He's got over 30 tackles and four sacks already this season. Inside the classroom, Reynolds is solid and has a 16 on his ACT, a test that he will take again next month to become a full qualifier. Reynolds was measured at Pitt's summer camp at 6-4 1/2 and 227 and says he's now 6-5 and 230. And he's got 4.55 speed, as timed electronically at Pittsburgh's camp.

Are you still committed to the University of Miami: Yes I am.

Which schools have called you this month: Just Pittsburgh, Kentucky, and Miami.

Have the offers continued to pour in, or did they slow down after the commitment to Miami: Yeah, they sort of slowed down some. (editor's note: Reynolds has 12 scholarship offers).

Talk about the season for Miami so far: They're doing great. I watched them against Penn State and they did real, real good.

Have you scheduled your visit to Miami yet: No, but it'll be in early December. I will also take other visits, but I have no idea which ones yet.

Personally, it sounds to me like Reynolds wants to take some other visits although he is firmly committed to UM. I think it's a positive sign that Ohio State is not recruiting him because a lot of UM fans were wondering what happens if they become involved. At this point, his other visits would probably be to Pittsburgh and Kentucky, and aside from Dennis Johnson four years ago, it's been a very long time since we lost a recruit to either of those two schools, let alone one that's already committed here. Reynolds sounds excited about becoming a Hurricane.
