Roswell, Ga., wide receiver Corey Reed has never wavered on the decision he made in July.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound three-star standout made a commitment to the University of Louisville to play football and this weekend after his official visit Reed confirmed that he was "solid" on that commitment.
"I am very excited," he said. "I am ready to get my gear on and play."
Reed was one of 11 prospects on campus for their official visit, including 10 who were already committed to Louisville. One of three wide receivers making the trip this weekend, Reed said the commitments did a lot of bonding.
"It was real good," he said of all the talk between commitments. "We got a feel for each other once we started being around each other more. I think that's something that will help us down the road. It was great to be there with them.
"I'm really excited about this class."
Reed, along with Justin Marshall and Josh Johnson, are a big part of the class. Wide receivers coach Lonnie Galloway pin-pointed the trio last summer and went after the prospects - landing all three.
While no playing time has been promised, Reed knows where he stands.
"His message to me was to get ready to play when you get up here," Reed said. "I like it on the visit because you actually get to know the coaches a lot. I really like the coaches at Louisville."
And it didn't hurt that he got to hang out one night with Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.
"It was cool and it's good because I can build a relationship with him," Reed said. "We can make plays together."
