Since receiving a scholarship offer from NC State back in March, Maury (Norfolk, Va) High standout La’Roy Reynolds has seen interest in his services pick up substantially over the last couple of months. The 6-2, 205 pounder with 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash spoke with Pack Pride recently and gave us the latest on his recruiting.
“Recruiting has been going well,” said Reynolds. “Now I’m up to four offers- NC State, Virginia, Connecticut and Syracuse. Connecticut was my latest offer. I’m starting to hear a lot from Tennessee and West Virginia and they may offer soon. I’m going to Louisville’s camp and they’re talking about offering, too.”
The Pack looked particularly strong with Reynolds back in March so where does State stand now with the rising senior?
“I haven’t been back to State since junior day,” said Reynolds. “I was hoping to get back down there because I didn’t want them to think they’re not still in the picture because they are. So I’m hoping I can get down there to see the coaches again.
“I’m still hearing from them a lot. Coach Reed, the DB’s coach just sent me a letter the other day just asking me to get in touch with him to how everything was going.”
As for a top five, Reynolds listed Virginia, Connecticut, Louisville, West Virginia and NC State as the schools at the head of his list currently.
Earlier in the year it appeared Reynolds could be on the verge of an early commitment. However, with several new schools now in the mix, he says he plans to ride the recruiting process out for a while.
“I think I’ve decided to wait a while and weigh my options so see what’s a good fit for me,” he said. “I think NC State is a good fit for me but I just want to see what else is out there before I make a commitment somewhere.”
As a junior Reynolds starred on both offense and defense for Maury. At wide receiver he hauled in 18 catches for 527 yards and four touchdowns. From his safety spot Reynolds accounted for 70 tackles and an interception en route to all-district honors.
