MCCOOK, Ill. -- Just days after receiving after his offer from Michigan, Farmington (Mich.) junior linebacker David Reese admitted he had two schools he was trying to impress during the Adidas Top Ten Combine outside of Chicago on Saturday.

"It was great to come out here and compete at LB and enter the competition in the Midwest," said Reese, who earned camp MVP honors in his position group. "I wanted to show [Michigan coach Jim] Harbaugh and guys at Louisville what I can do. Just come out here to get some work."

Reese, who is currently committed to Louisville, had choice words when describing his initial offer from Michigan.

"Michigan is a dream offer to have," Rees said. "Michigan is in top consideration besides Louisville. That's where I'm at with them.

"Since I am committed right now, I am going to take a look at [Michigan] again. I'm sticking with Louisville right now. So I will just have to take a look at everything and talk with my parents and make sure I am making the right decision."

So what will it take for Reese to consider switching his commitment to Michigan?

"I just need to get around practice some more," Reese said. "See the guys again. See the energy again. I am probably going to be down there for spring ball this Saturday. I am excited about that."

Adding: "I just want to see that intensity from the linebackers. I just want to see [Joe] Bolden and [Desmond] Morgan and see what they do. How they contribute."

One thing is for sure, Reese already has connection with U-M defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin. The two of them spent some quality time together during one of Reese's last visits.

"I have a good connection with Coach [D.J.] Durkin," Reese said. "That was my first time being bale to meet him. He spent the whole time with me at the basketball game. We got to talking, it's crazy that all their coaches have been at the NFL level. He's a legend in himself."

Michigan has also offered Reese's high school teammate, junior wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick, who is also committed to Louisville. And right now, Reese maintains they are a package deal.

"That's crazy to have my teammate with me at both options," Reese said of playing with Fitzgerald. "I mean, I am probably going to make the decision with him, we're going to end up going to school together.

"So, yeah, it's going to be a package deal. We'll find out."
