Reynolds adds fourth offer

Aldine Eisenhower's Jaz Reynolds visits with Aggie Websider about his latest offer from Minnesota and what his travel plans look like. Does he have a leader? What are his thoughts on the new Texas A&M staff? Where does he plan on visiting next? David Sandhop visits with Reynolds about this and more.

College coaches have been making the pilgrimage to Aldine Eisenhower (TX) where some of the best talent in the country is located at one high school. Located just north of Houston, the program produced four-star national recruit Rod Davis, who signed with Texas A&M in 2008. In 2009, the Eagles have three highly-touted prospects including wide receiver Jaz Reynolds.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound prospect currently has four offers on the table from Minnesota, University of Houston, Virginia, and Northwestern. He's getting serious interest from several top programs including Notre Dame, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M.

"I just received an offer from Minnesota," Reynolds said. "I'm going to Tech on the 5th. I think they will offer. They have a great offense that throws the ball 50-60 times a game. I've never been to Lubbock though, so I'll have to check that out."

Reynolds has visited Texas A&M several times, and also went up to OU with his teammates Greg Timmons and Craig Loston. He enjoyed his time in Norman.

"It was a great place. Everything was nice and top of the line," Reynolds said. "The only thing I didn't like was that the dorms were right next to the practice facilities, and you have to stay there as a freshman. I'd like to be a little farther away where you could walk around campus or take a bike somewhere. But overall, it was impressive and OU is a great winning program."

The University of Houston and new coach Kevin Sumlin has caught the eye of the blue chip receiver, and the Cougars appear heavily involved in his recruitment.

"UH is right around the corner and would be close to home," Reynolds said. "I like what I've heard about Coach Sumlin's spread offense. They will pass a lot and throw it 50 times a game. They will be one of my top schools."

Reynolds is also very familiar with Texas A&M, having visited for their Game Night camp last summer, attending several games, and participating in the Aggies' first junior day in early February.

"I'm familiar with Texas A&M," Reynolds said. "I was close with the previous staff and I liked what I heard from the new staff. I'm not sure where I stand with them. They haven't offered, and I don't talk to them as much as some of the other schools."

At this point, Reynolds says it's too early to name any leaders and he's still listening to whoever is willing to talk to him.

"If they are interested in me, I'm interested in them," Reynolds said. "I'm wide open right now with no leaders."

Reynolds plans to attend the Scout.com Texas combine in Dallas on April 19.
