Idalou QB/Athlete Trips To Lubbock

Texas Tech makes QB's short list as he narrowed his plethora of choices down to a top six after attending the Red Raider's Wednesday evening practice.

Folks, we're talking about Shae Reagan...

"I talked to Coach Leach just recently and he wanted us to attend a practice," Reagan said. "Dad, said we'd visit and so we did. We've been there before but didn't meet any of the coaches.

"So, we went up there today, took a tour of the facilities was great," said the do-it-all quarterback/athlete. "It really changed my whole outlook of the place. Meeting all of the coaches is something I want to do as I determine where the best place for me might be and I was able to do that."

And if you think Tech wasn't pulling out all of the stops, consider this: Reagan said Leach personally took him on a 45 minute tour, if not an hour, showing off the new facilities while talking about what they'd like to do with him if he was to select the Red Raiders. Needless to say, they made an impression on the Idalou standout.

"They're committed to the passing game and I like that," Reagan revealed. "And Coach Leach said I'd have a shot at quarterback."

But make no mistake about it, Leach and Co. face stiff competition for the 6-3.5, 230-pounder.

He's also looking at, "Nebraska, A&M, TCU, Oklahoma State and Notre Dame".

Will schools offering him as a signal caller carry more appeal?

I want to play quarterback," Reagan explained, "but I know I can play other positions too. I'm a fast learner...basically, I just want to play football."

According to Reagan, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and TCU offered him as a QB, while A&M likes him at the LB/DE positions.

Notre Dame has yet to extend a 'ship to the Texas bluechip, but they're recruiting him just as heavily.

One final note: Proximity favors Tech, but Reagan said it wouldn't be the determining factor.

We'll have more on Reagan soon.
