Reed will visit Baton Rouge

The Tigers are already shaping the look of their 2010 recruiting class, and one prospect that the LSU staff sees as a major piece to the puzzle is Thibodaux's Trovon Reed.

 

Reed was a Class 5A First Team All-State selection as an athlete during his junior campaign for the many things he did on the field for Thibodaux head coach Dennis Lorio.

 

The honor was well-deserved as Reed accounted for 1,784 yards and 21 touchdowns. From his quarterback position he completed 28-of-52 passes for 694 yards and 10 touchdowns, and rushed 91 times for 746 yards and 10 scores. It didn't end there as the versatile playmaker caught 19 passes for 344 yards and found the endzone one time.

 

College coaches recognized Reed's ability early on and the offers have already started flowing his way.


"I still have four offers, those being Georgia, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Oregon," Reed said. "I am getting lots of stuff in the mail from schools, especially LSU."

 

When the invitation to the Tigers' Junior Day arrived, the 4-star was quick to confirm that he would be in attendance.

 

"I am going to be there for sure," Reed said. "I am getting down there, as well as Lache Seastrunk and Tony Hurd Jr. Connor Wood also said he was going to try and get down. I am very excited, because I want to see all the top juniors. I saw some at the All American combine in San Antonio, but I want to check out everybody in the class."

 

The 6-foot, 172-pound Reed has built up a rapport with a number of 2010 recruits, which he hopes will pay dividends in the future.

 

"Lache is my cousin, of course, and I met Connor and Tony through camps going back to last summer," Reed said. "We all have agreed that we would keep working out together throughout the next year. Connor is huge and has really nice accuracy, so he can help me with my routes and I help him with his.

 

"Tony gets down and plays corner, so he can man me up," added Reed. "And then Lache runs the routes out of the backfield, and Tony gets work on those, too. We can just all help each other out."

 

With a visit also planned to the Longhorns Junior Day on Feb. 8, Reed feels that his offer list could begin to increase over the coming months.

 

If the Tigers were to call with an offer, what would it mean to the Louisiana-native?

 

"I don't even know what I'd say," Reed said. "It would be a long time coming. I am excited because I have dreamed all my life about getting an offer like that. College football is all I care about. I don't care about ever playing in the NFL. I just love college football, so it would be amazing."

 

As for a timeframe on his decision, Reed said that after he gets reacquainted with his recruitment he will have a better feel for its ending.

 

"I really don't know if I have gotten any new offers or what, because my coach takes care of all that for me," he said. "I am playing basketball and taking all of my core classes this semester, so I don't go see the football coaches that much. I know some different college coaches have come through the school, but I don't really talk with them. I will sit down one of these days soon here and sort it all out."

 

Note: Reed is an excellent student and he has already made a 23 on the ACT.
