Spencer Reeves: Up to 15

Two of the top prospects that attended Texas' second junior day were Dallas Skyline's Spencer Reeves and Keanon Cooper. They both left Austin without an offer, but both still have strong interest in the Longhorns. While Texas' coaches have yet to show much interest in the Skyline products, that hasn't stopped other programs from jumping into the mix.

"It's going good. I picked up a couple of more offers. I'm up to 15 now," Spencer Reeves said. "Lately, I got an offer from Arkansas, West Virginia, SMU and LSU. Those were the last four schools to offer."

Others that have extended an offer to Reeves include Kansas State, Minnesota, Alabama, Baylor and Purdue. Reeves hasn't ruled out any of the schools that have offered, but two programs have separated themselves from the others.

"Not really," Reeves replied when asked if he had narrowed anything down yet. "I am still interested in all 15 schools. I'm very interested in trying to stay close to home, but most of my offers are from out-of-state schools. Minnesota and Kansas State are showing the most interest and sending the most mail. I'm going to take a hard look at all 15, but right now Minnesota and Kansas State are my top two schools."

One school that Reeves has had interest in for quite sometime is Texas. Both he and Keanon Cooper attended the Longhorns' second junior day, but Reeves hasn't heard anything from Texas since then.

"Since the day I left the junior day, I haven't heard anything from Texas. No mail, no calls. They did stop by practice a couple of days ago with a couple of their coaches, but I haven't heard much from them," Reeves said.

Despite not being shown much attention from the Longhorn coaching staff, Reeves is still planning on attending their camp over the summer.

"I was going to try to attend Texas' camp on June 8th. I got a camp thing from Baylor, and I will probably be going to that. I'm going to try to go to the Texas camp for sure," Reeves said.

Skyline High School may have the most dominant defenses in the entire state next year. Their style is based around speed, and they have a playmaker at every level of the defense. Needless to say, Reeves is very excited about the defense coming into his senior season.

"Oh yeah, we are finishing up. Our spring game is the 17th, so Friday will be the last day," Reeves said about spring practice. "It looks good. Hopefully Keanon, Alfred (Dupree) and I can make our defense one of the best. We also have Da'Jon (McKnight) coming over from the basketball team to help us out at corner back. With the defense that we have in place, the attitude and the want to win, our defense should be near the top."
