Tenn. OL to Visit Heels

North Carolina continues to pursue offensive line prospects, and the latest to schedule an official visit is Strawberry Plains (Tenn.) Carter tackle Garrett Reynolds.

"I was actually offered a scholarship by North Carolina back in the spring," Reynolds said. "I attended their summer camp this past summer and really liked the campus, atmosphere, and the coaches. There is really nothing that I don't like about North Carolina."

Reynolds is the latest Tennessee prospect to be considering the Tar Heels, following in line with previous signees Fred Sparkman and Adarius Bowman. He said he has about 10 offers to this point and he'll first visit Virginia Tech on Nov. 27, followed by North Carolina on Dec. 4 and Nebraska on Dec. 17.

His other offers include Georgia Tech, Clemson, Wake Forest, Northwestern and Vanderbilt as well as a few others.

Reynolds plays both sides of the line. On defense, he has recorded 72 tackles and four sacks. On offense, his team does not keep stats on pancake blocks although his coach, Heath Woods, said he is very effective playing that position and graded out at 95 percent.

"He is the best player on our team," said Woods. "He practices hard and plays hard. He is a quality person that has added a lot to the program."

Reynolds is still undecided on a major, and said that distance will not factor heavily in his decision.

"I expect that I will wait until after my official visits before I commit," Reynolds said. "It probably will be sometime in January before I decide."

Reynolds declined to name any favorites.

"I'd like to visit some schools first," he said. "I know I will take at least three official visits before I commit. We'll see how those go."
