Recruiting: Reed Follows Lavine To OSU

Oklahoma State's pipeline to talent at Jersey Village High School in Houston continues to roll as standout defensive back Jacoby Reed has decided to follow former Falcon teammate Patrick Lavine to Stillwater. The 5-11, 175-pound Reed confirmed Monday that he has committed to OSU, but we also caught up with Jersey Village head coach David Snokhous to visit about his outstanding defensive back.

"He's very talented," Snokhaus said of Reed, a third-team Texas Football Magazine Super Team selection. "He's probably one of the better ones I've coached playing on the back end (of the defense) because of his football sense.

"He's very talented and can play a number of positions. He can line up and play receiver, he can return kicks, he can returns punts ... He can do a little bit of everything," Snokhaus continued.

Reed is a quiet kid who doesn't have much to say. But lets his actions doing his talking, especially on the field.

"He's a great kid. He's just real quiet. He is what you see," Snokhaus says.

But when Jersey City needed him to step up and play bigger than his 5-11, 175-pound stature, Snokhaus said Reed did. "His best game was probably against Cy Ridge (Cypress Ridge) because we had to win that one to get in (the playoffs)," the Jersey Village coach said. "He only weighs about 170 or 175 but he's so physical. He played so physical in that game. It was his senior leadership that made a difference."

"He's a good kid who works hard. He's going to be a great asset to the program," Snokhaus said. "I expect great things out of him."

That just leaves one question - who's going to be the Jersey Village standout who follows in the footsteps of Lavine and Reed as a member of the Oklahoma State Cowboys? Keep your eyes on running back Anthony Bibbs, who rushed for 1,124 yards on 183 attempts (an average of 6.1-yard per carry) and eight touchdowns last season as a junior.
