In his latest visit in late March, Reid made his way to Ann Arbor once again. This time he had the opportunity to hangout with some of Michigan’s 2016 commits -- Rashan Gary and fellow Cass teammate Michael Onwenu.
“I was hanging out with ‘Big’ Mike (Onwenu) and Rashan Gary most of the time,” said Reid, who stars for Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech. “We went down and watched a little bit of practice, had some dinner and watched the spring (game) draft. It went pretty good, I really enjoyed myself.”
Gary, who was Scout.com’s No. 1 overall 2016 prospect, spoke briefly to Reid and his fellow Cass Tech teammates on why he chose Michigan.
“It was my first time meeting him. We just talked about football,” Reid said of Gary, adding: “He was telling us as a group as a group that he liked Michigan. He really didn’t get into too much detail. I just kicked it with him and Mike and we just hung out for a little but.”
That being said: Where does Michigan stand in Reid’s rectuitment?
“With it being an instate school and I’ve been up there for about four football games now,” Reid said. “I’m getting familiar with it. I’m really enjoying it.”
Specifically, Reid pointed out his blossoming relationship with offensive coordinator Tim Drevno.
“Coach Drevno, I really enjoy going down there watching practice and his style of coaching,” Reid said of Drevno. “He told me to keep working hard. He told me he’s got something for me if I commit to Michigan.”
Adding: “He says I’m very athletic for my size. I carry my weight real well and it will take me a long way.”
Reid announced his top five in no particular order on Monday on his Twitter account. His list included: Florida, Michigan, Michigan State and Pitt.
Reid says he doesn’t have a decision timeline as of yet, noting he would like to take at least three official visits before announcing his commitment.
Upcoming, however, Reid says he plans to attend MSU’s annual spring game on April 23. And while he was just on U-M’s campus in late March, he says his plan is check out Michigan once again soon, this time with his family.
“I think sometime next week I am going to get the family to come down,” Reid said. “Cause spring ball is over, so it’s time for coaches to get a feel for my family and check out the academic side sometime next week.”
