Battle Creek (Mich.) Central athlete Brandon Reynolds is one of the top in-staters this year. He attended Ohio State's NIKE camp where he got a better sense from the coaches there about what position he might be lining up at in the fall. A fullback and linebacker on his high school team, a move to tailback is not out of the possibility. "All the coaches have been telling me running back," he told GoBlueWolverine.
Reynolds is also being recruited as a linebacker, but after rushing for 1,062 yards as a junior, it is clear to many schools that he has ability with the ball in his hands.
At this point in time, he did not report any offers, but some may be on their way soon. "The schools I hear most from are Michigan State, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Toledo, Buffalo," he said.
A good student with a 3.7 GPA, Reynolds also reported that a few big time academic programs such as Princeton and Holy Cross have been recruiting him. Although he indicated he would like to stay in the Big 10.
Reynolds measured 6-0, 230, and he participated in all of the OSU Nike workouts and drills. He sprained his quadricep during his forty yard dash and scratched his time, but reported a 4.69 during a camp in Toledo. He ran his shuttle in 4.5 seconds and did 20 reps on 185 lbs. on the bench press. In position drills he was FB-LB powerful.
