Diary of a Recruit: Bobby Reid

As one of the top quarterbacks in Texas, Galena Shore North Park senior Bobby Reid has a full plate and a lot of important decisions looming about. In this week's entry, Reid lets fans in on his thoughts about Oklahoma State, Georgia and why he thinks Josh Fields is a great example as a signal-caller.

When I went to the (Oklahoma State) camp, I worked all week with Coach Gundy and the receivers coach. I was really impressed with the way they coached. They were telling me what I need to work on and what I need to do, and Coach Gundy really helped me out a lot as far as instruction goes. He knows his stuff and I enjoyed listening to him.

 

After the camp, I went into Coach Miles office and he said that he would stop recruiting other quarterbacks if I would sign, because they would have exactly what they wanted. He was pretty straight with me. 

 

As far as the current quarterbacks go, I have never seen Donovan Woods play, but I have seen Josh Fields and I like the way he plays. He is not a big quarterback, he isn't nearly as big as me, but I really like his style.  He goes out there and plays like he is the biggest guy on the field even though he isn't. It shows that he has a big heart and I feel like I can learn from that.

 

I have paid attention to the great receivers at Oklahoma State, because they have a lot of them. I have been blessed with a corp of good receivers lately, but we didn't have five or six – we only have three or four. We still got the job done though, and that is something I want to be able to continue.

 

Georgia and Oklahoma State are pretty much even in my mind. But, I haven't went out to Georgia's camp. It is kinda hard to know a lot about a school just from watching TV and reading the letters the coaches send you. I have kinda decided on my five (official visits), but it isn't exactly carved in stone. I can tell you that of the two or three that I do know, Oklahoma State is definitely one of them. But, like I said, Georgia is up there too, and I have to really look at them more before I have a definite idea of what I want to do.

 

All this is really my decision, but my mom is really great. She is keeping me on the ground and keeping everything in check. I really tend to get overwhelmed with all this stuff, but she is taking care of all of that side for me. She puts restrictions on the things that need it and really helps me out by making sure everything is smooth, and I don't get overwhelmed by all that is going on right now. She makes sure I keep my feet on the ground. Actually, I got to go cut the grass in a minute.

 

This past month of June has been really hard, I go to summer school from 8 to 2:30 every day which is really tough because I only have thirty minutes to get to the other campus to start lifting weights from 3-6. Summer school just ended this last week, which is good because now I can go to the morning (lifting) session from 8-11. It has just been really busy because I have to really prepare myself for the upcoming season, and that is my main focus.
