Reed picks up a pair of big offers

The last couple of weekends have been busy for Trovon Reed, picking up offers from both LSU and Texas at their respective junior days. Back in Thibodaux after a weekend in Austin, the 4-star wide receiver reflects on where he stands moving forward.

"The weekend at Texas was great," said Thibodaux wide receiver Trovon Reed. "I met a lot of the coaching staff and got to know some players. They showed us around the campus and facilities, and it was all super nice. I really liked everything, to tell you the truth."


The highlight of the weekend, however, came when Reed landed his offer, which brings his total to seven.


"Coach Mack Brown came and told me face to face that he wanted me to come help him out and be a Longhorn," he said. "It felt super good. They were showing me a lot of love all weekend, and the offer let me know they really were after me."


A week prior, the Thibodaux High athlete made the trek to Baton Rouge, where he experienced a similar sit down with Tiger head coach Les Miles.


"Coach Miles told me that he had an offer for me when I was in at junior day in Baton Rouge," Reed said. "I felt great when that news came, too. He told me a bunch of good stuff, so it felt good to know the staff thinks highly of me. I talked to [wide receiver] coach [D.J.] McCarthy a good bit, and he said that they need me.


"I checked out the facilities on the campus tour, which were real nice," added Reed. "I knew most of the staff already, but I got to meet some more of the coaches and then players and stuff like that. They also fed me good and made sure we were having a good time. Even though I got the offer I just took it all in and stayed humble."


The 4-star has one more junior day remaining before he turns his focus to working out prior hitting summer camps.


"I will be going to Oregon on May 2," Reed said. "I have had a great couple of weeks, and I am looking forward to that last visit to check out Oregon. I have offers from California, Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Georgia, LSU and Texas now, so it feels pretty good. I am just going to keep working hard and hope the good things keep coming."
