West Roxbury (MA) Catholic Memorial corner Armani Reeves, a four-star prospect, was in Pittsburgh this past weekend for the Badger Sports New Level Athletics 7-on-7 tournament. Reeves has picked up a total of 17 offers from schools in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12 and Big East.
Pittsburgh was a school in the mix early on. His offer status changed a little with the coaching change.
"Coach (Jeff) Hafley used to be at Pitt, but he went to Rutgers, that's when (Rutgers) offered me, after that," Reeves said. "I know that (Pitt) was going to offer me when coach Hafley was here, but he went to Rutgers, and that's where the offer went from."
Despite the coaching change, Reeves said he would consider the Panthers if offered.
"I don't know much about them, I wouldn't mind hearing from them, just to get to know the program a little bit," Reeves said. "If they come in the mix, I would give them a chance, definitely."
Aside from looking at new possible offers, Reeves already has some other possible visits mapped out this spring.
As a junior, Reeves rushed for 1,700 yards and 16 touchdowns. He returned two punts for touchdowns, and had 37 tackles and four interceptions on defense. Even more impressive, is that Reeves never comes off the field. It might be viewed as tiresome, but Reeves feels being on the field for every play helps with his conditioning, and more importantly helps his team.
"I never get off the field, I'm on the field all day, every single play, every single down," Reeves said. "Even when it comes to returns, I'm on every return; punt and kick return. I never get a break, but it's just good for me in conditioning, and to help my team win games."
When it comes to 7-on-7, Reeves feels that playing in tournaments like the one he participated in this past weekend have helped him in his development, and will help him prepare for a strong senior season.
"It helps me a lot, I get to pick up on some of my skills with some of the good kids out there, I had a good competition," Reeves said. "I had a lot of fun against good competition out there. It's a great feeling. It's great to get out there and just challenge yourself. It's good to play different types of receivers and see what you can do against them, that you can play against any type of receiver."
