McReynolds recently began getting recruited by Rutgers, and while he was contemplating why he wasn't hearing much from the Scarlet Knights, he is excited about the prospects of adding to his offer list.
"I just heard from their new defensive line coach (Randy Melvin),'' McReynolds said. "I'm willing to consider anybody at this point. I haven't told anybody, ‘No.' I'm interested in all schools, so I'm not going to put down any school.
"Most time, if you show me love, I'll show my love back. I'm just that kind of person.''
And the USC offer provided plenty of excitement.
"That's a huge opportunity to play in one of the best conferences in the country,'' McReynolds said, "and get a chance to get a good education.''
However, McReynolds isn't going to be awed by a school, or make his decision based solely on the size of its football program.
"Every school has its ups and downs, and every school has something that sticks out to me,'' McReynolds said. "If I go to a smaller school, maybe I could start right away and make an impact right away and get a lot more playing time. If I got to bigger school, I might not play as much my freshman and sophomore years.''
Off the field, McReynolds is interested in opening his own entertainment-based business in the future, and that will factor into his recruitment.
"I don't like to work for people. I'm an entrepreneur at heart,'' he said. "I'm looking for a school that has a great business program. I'm also looking for a school where, I'm not saying I want to start right away, but I at least want a chance to compete for a starting job.''
