Recruiting: Two Lead For Highly-Ranked Wideout

Pflugerville Hendrickson WR Terrell Reese is a big-time prospect that is coming off an injury-plagued junior season. That injury hasn't stopped schools from offering him as he currently holds three written offers. He spoke to Inside Texas about his recruitment.

Terrell Reese missed most of the '04 season after an early-season ACL tear, but the injury hasn't stopped schools from making the trip to Hendrickson to check out the physically imposing wideout (6-4, 200, 4.5) as his recruitment has really heated up in the past few weeks.

The Central Texas WR currently hold three offers. "I have been offered by Arizona, Nebraska, and Missouri," Reese told IT. "Right now, Arizona and Nebraska are tied as my leaders and I will make official visits to both schools." Reese went on to say that Purdue and Oklahoma State are showing a great deal of interest and may offer soon.

Reese is currently being recruited by Arizona WRs Coach Mike Williams. "Coach Williams seems to be a great guy. He's really straightforward and has a passion for what he does," Reese said.

Nebraska is showing Reese a great deal of interest as well. He is currently being recruited by Nebraska WR/RB Coach Turner Gill. "I haven't had much of an opportunity to talk to him, but I've always loved Nebraska. They've been one of my favorite teams since middle school."

What is Reese looking for in a school? "I want to go to a school that has good academics, and a good football program that can perhaps get me to the next level. Academics is most important though because I want a good foundation. I've been asking the schools that are recruiting me about their Business School since that is what I want to major in."

Reese has made one unofficial visit so far and that came at UT's Junior Day back in late February. "The Texas Junior Day was great," he said. "I felt comfortable and I like their program. Coach (Bobby) Kennedy told me that he's looking for a WR like me because I'm tall and physical. I have all of the qualities that he looks for in a WR."

Should Texas offer, would that change Reese's thoughts on his top schools? "That's a tough question," he said. "I would really have to wait and see what happens before I made a decision like that."

Reese is planning to attend two camps for sure this summer. "I am going to the Texas and Oklahoma State camps," he said. "I also am hoping to go to a Nebraska and Arizona camp, but I'm not sure right now."
