Last Friday, Muskegon (Mich.) defeated Zeeland East (Mich.) 47-6 by pounding the rock behind its big guys up fron, especially rising sophomore offensive tackle Antwan Reed. Despite the dominating victory the Big Reds was focused on his improvement.
“I think I played with a little more athleticism because I was running around a lot, but I got to work on a little bit more stuff like finishing my blocks,” Reed told The Michigan Insider. “I got to work on that and it didn’t show well tonight. We did have a good game and good blocking up front though.”
At 6-7, 275-pounds, Reed has grabbed the attention of several BCS programs.
“My recruitment is going good,” said Reed. “I have two years left of football, but I've (already) got one offer right now from Tennessee and I want to see what happens in the future.”
“I like the area and I have done my research on them, but I have watched a couple of their games and liked them.”
Another schools that has expressed early interest in Reed is Michigan. He recently took an unofficial visit down to Ann Arbor to see the dismantling of BYU... an experience that made an extremely positive impression.
“It was great and really fun,” said Reed. “Watching that one handed catch from Darboh and everyone was like he was Odell (laughter). I went with a couple friends and met a lot of people there. It went great. I talked to a few on the staff and told me to keep on working and it will get you somewhere.”
“(My interest) is pretty high. “I have went to a lot of their home games and watched a lot too. Just this recent game was my favorite game I have went too. It has been a school I have always been watching since I was a little kid. It is a good school and did grow up a fan.
If the Wolverines were to throw their hat into the mix, how much would that impact his recruitment?
“For right now, not that much really because I've got to wait it out, but eventually after everything all plays out,” said Reed. “I will probably end up going to some type of school from here (in-state) so my parents and everyone in my family can go to the games to see me.”
Reed hopes to check out Notre Dame on October 10th and Michigan the next weekend for its showdown with Michigan State.
