Top Texas DE will be a hot prospect

A list of favorites in March most of the time doesn't hold up. With Spencer Reeves, recruiting is probably just getting started for him. Reeves will be one of the top defensive end prospects in the state of Texas this fall and that will be bringing in teams from all over. Expect recruiting to really heat up for Reeves around the evaluation period.

Spencer Reeves is a 6-foot-2 and 205-pound missile of a defensive end. He has 4.5-speed coming off of the edge for Dallas (Texas) Skyline and is still working on improving his game.

"I have been working on getting stronger," Reeves said. "I am also trying to add some more weight. I am fast, but I am trying to work to get strong and get big."

Recruiting has been pretty busy for Reeves as of late. He is sitting on four offers and has a top two from that list. He is also getting a lot of attention from some other very good football programs.

"It's going pretty good. Minnesota and Kansas State are my top two and they show me a lot of love. I have offers from both."

"I also have offers from Alabama and Purdue. I am also getting attention from Texas, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Texas Tech and Oklahoma."

When it comes to picking a school, Reeves will be looking at the football program and the educational side of the school. "I am looking at their facilities and their educational program. Both of those things will be a major factor."

Skyline made it to the playoffs last year due in large part to Reeves'efforts. As a junior, he was a team a captain and also picked up district honors after his solid year.

"We went 7-4 last year. I had 98 tackles. That's all I know. I was first team all-district and I was team captain."

Reeves will be one of many players who is expected to go to the combine later this month in Dallas. He has already been to one junior day and has another combine and camp set up for this spring and summer.

"I attended Texas' junior day already. I am going to the combine on March 25. I am going to the Nike combine and Texas' camp on June 8."
