Introduction 2015: WR L.J. Reed

UCLA checked out the Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks 2015 receiver, L.J. Reed, this spring...

Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks 2015 receiver L.J. Reed (6-3, 200), already has three offers and figures to see that grow in the next two years.

Idaho was the first offer for Reed, then Arizona State and Eastern Washington followed.

"The first offer was pretty exciting for me, I wasn't expecting it at a young age," said Reed. "I thought you couldn't get offers like until you were a junior. You get a lot of looks at this school though and I'm glad I'm at this school."

The Arizona State offer was significant for Reed too.

"Arizona State meant a lot to me," said Reed. "To even see a Pac-12 school recruit me, let alone offer me, at this age, that was big."

Several other schools came through in the spring and were impressed with Reed.

"USC liked me a lot and UCLA was really impressed with me and said they would be recruiting me," said Reed. "Utah, Colorado State and Oregon State all really liked me too."

Reed plays opposite four-star receiver Alex Van Dyke, who has over 20 offers already, making for a nice 1-2 punch.

"Playing opposite Alex, for me, I'm that type of receiver who likes to get the ball over the corner, and he's the receiver who beats them off the short route," said Reed. "We're a pretty good threat for our offense."

Given how much time till he has to sign, Reed isn't in a rush to make a decision.

"Whatever school comes in with an offer, I'll consider it," said Reed. "Alabama has always been the dream school so I want to get to that level."

Reed said he thinks he's still growing and that could prompt a position change.

"I'll be about 6-5, 235, so I want to stay at receiver and I want to be a bigger physical receiver," said Reed. "But if I had to move like to tight end or inside, I want to be like Rob Gronkowski and be hard for linebackers to stop."

Reed plans to camp at Oregon State's team camp with Cosumnes Oaks.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
