Reed admitted to Scout on Sunday that of the top 12 schools that programs such as Texas A&M, Texas and Oklahoma have started to separate from the pack and have gained traction as the most likely teams that he could commit to.

He is still on track to make his decision this spring.

The Opening Houston Observation: As you can see, several of the state of Texas' top offensive tackles were on display at Sunday's camp. Grayson Reed affirmed our belief that he's one of those guys. Reed measured even larger than we had him previously listed in the Scout database as he checked in at 6-foot-4 1/2, 304 pounds. He's strong at the point of attack and surprisingly light on his feet. Reed is the type of O-line prospect who may be able to play just about anywhere along the front in college.

Scout Evaluation: Will be in the argument at the end of the day to be one of the top rated players along the offensive line in the class. He has the necessary size and strength to truly dominate at the highest levels of competition in high school ball. He has really good feet that allows him to lock onto and stay with defensive linemen until the whistle blows, and we would define his ability to move in space as his biggest strength. He moves well enough to stick and play tackle, but would ake a tremendous guard prospect as well. - Greg Powers
