Reid Receives OU Offer

Sooners Illustrated caught up with Ryan Reid tonight, a 2012 corner prospect out of Sherman HS in Sherman (TX) who was offered by OU earlier this week. Check inside to see what Reid had to say.

Earlier this week Coach Martinez and Coach Venables made a stop at Sherman HS which is just inside the Texas border to check out Ryan Reid, a 5-foot-11 and 185-pound corner with speed.

After evaluating Reid at practice Coach Martinez decided to go ahead and let Reid's head coach know that he wanted to offer Reid a scholarship.

"He (Coach Martinez) came by and he told my coaches that he wanted me," Reid explained. "He looked at me and looked at my film. He just wanted to see me (in person)."

Receiving a Sooner offer was good news to Reid who holds the Sooners high on his list of schools.

"It's nice," Reid said about the offer. "It's a really big school on my list."

Reid holds three other offers at the moment from Texas Tech, Baylor and Arizona. He visited Texas Tech on a junior day earlier this year and was impressed with what he saw.

This upcoming summer Reid says he has plans to get to Norman to check out the campus along with taking part in the summer camp in early June.

Distance from home does not play a factor for Reid. The most important thing for him is feeling comfortable wherever he decides to go.

"It's not a factor," Reid said about leaving home for school. "I'm just trying to get somewhere I can feel comfortable around everybody rather if it's at home or away."

With schools letting out for summer soon it sounds like Reid could be announcing his decision anytime now.

"I will probably make a commitment this summer," Reid stated.

Last season Reid finished with 60-tackles along with three-interceptions, four- pass deflections and two-caused fumbles. Stick with Sooners Illustrated for more news on Reid in the future.
