Reid working hard for 2012 season

FW All Saints TE Charlie Reid is solid as ever to TCU and wants more to follow him.

FW All Saints tight end Charlie Reid put on a show in College Station last weekend at the FSSW 7on7 State Championships. The TCU commit helped lead the Saints to the championship game in the consolation bracket against Princeton.

Although his team fell short, 33-27, Reid knows he and his teammates proved that even though they're a private school, they can compete with anyone.

"You just want to go out there and prove yourself and that you are a real program," he said. "Obviously for some of the guys getting recruited it makes them look better that we play with the best and that's important to all of us."

Reid, who looks every bit of 6-4, 230-pounds, says he's worked hard this summer at bettering his speed which he says is in the high 4.5 range.

"I've been working out every day and getting faster for my Horned Frogs and hopefully I can get in there and get after it as soon as possible," Reid said.

With his commitment, Reid has gone from recruit to recruiter. The good news for him, and Frog fans, is he doesn't have to travel very far to find D-1 prospects to join him at TCU. The All Saints roster is full of next level talent.

"I know I'm trying to get Foster (Sawyer), Demetrius (Knox) and Xavier (Phillips) even though he's committed to Baylor," he said. "I can always push him and see where that goes."

Just as other TCU commitments have stated, Reid says the Frogs' 2013 class are already bonding and ready to be the next great class at TCU.

"Great, we're actually all in a Facebook group and we talk on that," he said of his relationship with fellow commit. "We're all really compatible and going to be really good friends."
