Louisville is in the lead for Roswell, Ga., wide receiver Corey Reed; the three-star prospect was standout at Friday Night's camp at U of L

The University of Louisville football program is in the lead to land Roswell, Ga., wide receiver Corey Reed. The three-star prospect was a standout at Friday Night's camp at U of L.

Roswell, Ga., High School wide receiver Corey Reed was one of the top performers on Friday at the Light Up The Ville camp hosted by the University of Louisville football staff.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Reed is a three-star prospect who has 17 scholarship offers but confirmed to Cardinal Authority that after a visit to Louisville there's one school that sticks out.

"Yes sir, they're the leader," Reed said of Louisville.

Reed is being recruited by new U of L offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway and spent a lot of time getting coaches up with Galloway and head coach Bobby Petrino during the drills on Friday night.

"They coaches said they were really impressed with me," Reed said. "They said they loved me."

It's been a sensational spring and summer for Reed, who was a standout at the Elite Junior Showcase back in December and then was impressive again at the Opening in Atlanta in late March. At the U of L camp, Reed showed a terrific set of hands and made several catches in traffic and a couple of balls even over his head.

"I thought I did well," Reed said. "I caught all of my balls and won every rep against the defensive back. I was happy with how I performed."

The trip to Louisville was the third for Reed, who said he's not sure when he will make a final decision. He also has offers from Miami, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Illinois, Maryland and Wisconsin among others.

Reed caught 42 passes for 684 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games last season at Atlanta Mays. He's ranked as the No. 61 wide receiver in the country and checks in at No. 8 in Georgia.
