Visit Puts USF on Top for TE Reeves

Greensboro TE David Reeves, a 6-5, 245, All-State TE has a new leader after his offical visit to Tampa. Read on for all the details.

With National signing day approaching, Skip Holtz and the Bulls are still trying to put the finishing touches on the class of 2011 by hosting a big recruiting weekend with 21 prospects descending on the campus of USF. One of those players is Greensboro's David Reeves, a 6-foot-5 1/2, 245 pound 3-star prospect ranked the No 48 TE by Scout, who made the trip to Tampa to check out USF and came away very impressed with what he saw at USF.

"The visit went very good," said Reeves. "USF is number 1 on my list now."

Reeves drove down with his family and enjoyed spending time with the players, staff and getting a feel for the Bulls

"We got to see a lot, the campus, and all that," said Reeves. "I liked the campus, the facilities were very nice and up-to-date, and the new practice fields were nice, top of the line."

"On Friday we went across Tampa Bay on a yacht and ate dinner, and hung out with the players. On Saturday went to Bush Gardens, ate some more, and went to the football Banquet, it was a great time."

"My favorite part of the weekend was just hanging with the players," said Reeves. "I got to spend time with my host Isaac Virgin, and got a chance to talk and cool with their QB B.J. Daniels. I liked that the most."

The Alabama All-Star is being recruited by USF Coach Larry Scott, and enjoyed spending time with him and the rest of the Bulls coaching Staff.

"I like Coach Scott, I talk with him the most," said Reeves. "He's a character, but I like him."

"I enjoyed being with all the coaching staff," said Reeves. "They're fun group of coaches with a lot of personality."

Reeves and his family got to spend time with USF head Coach Skip Holtz, and liked what coach had to say.

"I like Coach Holtz," said Reeves. "He seemed truly genuine with all that he was telling me today when he talked with me and my family today."

Reeves just earned all-State first team, and got honored as Lineman of the Year in his class at the Alabama Sports Writers Association's Football banquet this past week, He was named lineman of the year, but is being recruited as a tight end by the Bulls staff.

"They are recruiting me to play tight end and see me as a true tight end that can make plays for them, big plays," said Reeves. "If I work hard, I have a good chance of seeing early playing time."

The standout tight end received 9 offers including ones from Duke, USF, Georgia Tech, NC State, Vanderbilt, Memphis, and recently said he was favoring Duke and USF, but the visit changed things.

"I saw a lot of good things that I liked this weekend, " said Reeves. "USF is number 1 on my list now."

"The visit made me see that if I chose to go there, it would truly be a home away from home, because I can see that everybody has each others back."

After a great weekend visit, Reeves said he didn't make a decision while on the trip.

"I want to make sure that if I do commit, it's the right decision I make with a clear mind," said Reeves. "I'm probably going to wait until I get home and calm down from all the excitement, decide, then announce."
