Everyday, the mail comes in for the class-of-2010, top-100 recruit, from college programs across America. Some of those schools, Trovon Reed knows a thing or two about, and some of those programs, the 6-foot-1, 179-pound receiver from Thibodaux, La., isn't very familiar with.
Notre Dame falls in the latter.
"I get a lot of letters from them, but it doesn't really say much," Reed said. He already holds written scholarship offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi and Oregon. "Just stats from their season.
"I know Notre Dame, but I don't know much about them. I don't know how their school is, and how they look. I've watched them play on TV before, they're pretty good, but I don't know much about their school."
Reed is obviously very familiar with LSU, visiting the campus several times. He plans to attend the Tigers upcoming Junior Day. Besides LSU, Reed is hearing plenty from places like South Carolina, Clemson, Florida State and Tennessee.
"I like every school," Reed stated. Besides LSU, the only school Reed has ever really visited is Texas A&M for a camp. "I just like college football period, because everyone is competing to get to the NFL. Everyone is working hard everyday, and that's what I like."
This past season, Reed helped lead Thibodaux High to a 10-1 record, and a spot in the third round of the state playoffs. College recruiters have known about the three-year starter for a long time.
"They like my athleticism," Reed said. He has been clocked at 4.44 in the 40-yard dash at Scout.com's New Orleans combine. "They say I'm a playmaker."
Reed, who has a 2.5 GPA, hasn't given much thought about how he is going to handle the recruiting process. He said he will sit down with his father soon to figure out a plan of attack.
As a matter of fact, Reed hasn't put much stock in the recruiting attention he's getting thus far.
"Right now, I'm in basketball, so I'm trying to put that out of my mind, because I'm focusing on basketball," Reed explained. "During football season, I was focused on football. We were 10-0, and we were winning, and I didn't want to open up letters all the time, and my teammates be like all he cares about is himself. I just put that to the side."
Reed says after basketball season, he'll start learning more about places like Notre Dame. He plans to be in San Antonio the first week of January for the National Underclassmen Combine.
