Another Freshman is Flagged

Another true freshman was informed this weekend that his test score has been challenged. The talented athlete talked to in an exclusive interview about the situation, plus his experience as a Hurricane through the first few weeks.

While the University of Miami awaits the final word on true freshmen Devin Hester and Terrell Walden, they took another blow this weekend when another member of the incoming freshmen class was flagged.

"I guess they challenged my scores," linebacker Antonio Reynolds said from his home in Ohio on Sunday evening. "I got a 25 on my ACT but they said they're checking into some things. I hope it's just for a few days because I want to be there when school starts this week."

At 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, Reynolds said he can't understand why he was forced to stop after practicing with the team for the last few weeks.

"They told those other guys they couldn't even practice," he said. "I wish they would have told me that instead of waiting. That makes it tougher, but I learned a lot so far."

Reynolds said the biggest adjustment has been the overall speed of the game.

"The big thing is the speed," he said. "I just had to get used to that and also getting used to the heat was kind of tough. We're looking real good at every position though."

There has been talk about Reynolds possibly becoming a defensive end at Miami. He talked about that.

"I might try defensive end because I'm starting to add a lot of muscle mass," he said. "I could try it but the coaches haven't really talked about it yet."

Reynolds said he hopes to get back to Miami this week.

"I'm hoping I can get back for the start of school this week," he said. "I don't even want to think about not going back and having to wait. I hope everything gets straightened out so I can return. I was having a lot of fun and I don't understand why they did all this."
