Reuland Taking Unofficial Visits

Warren Reuland, the wide receiver prospect from Mission Viejo (Calif.) High, is busy taking unofficial visits this month, to Stanford last weekend and then to Notre Dame, with plans to visit UCLA, too. The 6-5, 205-pounder has a plan for when he wants to make a commitment...

Mission Viejo (Calif.) receiver Warren Reuland (6-5, 205) is keeping himself busy in the month of April.

After visiting Stanford last weekend unofficially, Reuland will head to South Bend for the Notre Dame spring game. Could it be that the Irish and the Cardinal are the frontrunners?

"I haven't really narrowed it down, but I definitely like Stanford and Notre Dame a lot right now," said Reuland. "Stanford was my first offer and when I was at Notre Dame's Junior Day, they said that they wanted to see me at one of their camps if they'll offer."

Duke, Utah and Oregon State have also offered Reuland and UCLA is an additional school he's been been hearing from frequently. "They want me to come up to practice either this week or next week and go to one of their camps," said Reuland, who attended UCLA's Junior Day in February and attended a game in the fall.

Last weekend, Reuland made his first-ever trip to the Farm, and the experience was well worth it. "It was my first time ever seeing the campus and it was awesome," said Reuland. "It is a really nice campus. We took a tour of the campus and met with the admissions office. They will give me the application in May and I want to get the whole application done early and get it out of the way."

Reuland also spent part of the unofficial trip meeting with the Stanford coaching staff. "I met with just about all of them, and talked with Coach (Tim) Drevno a lot up there, he's been recruiting me. I really liked the new staff. I really think they're going to turn it around," said Reuland.

At 6-5 but only 205, Reuland said that his future is out wide. "They want me to play receiver and I think I'd be playing right away," said Reuland. "I'd have a really good chance to play my freshman year. I definitely want to go to a school that throws the ball."

This weekend, Reuland will visit South Bend, where his older brother Konrad is a tight end with the Irish. Warren said that Konrad has been helpful during this process, though he learned a lot during Konrad's turn at recruiting.

"Konrad has talked to me and said it would be cool to play with me again, but he said to go to the school that you want to go to, don't base it on me," said Reuland. "When he was going through the whole thing, I watched really closely and saw some of these schools when I was a freshman. I knew what a lot of schools were about."

Reuland said no pressure is coming from his family on where to go. "My family is leaving it up to me and they'll be happy with whatever my decision is," said Reuland.

Reuland also has an ideal time frame in which he'd like to decide. "I probably want to get it done by the end of summer, before the season starts," said Reuland.

An excellent student, Reuland has a 4.4 GPA, with an AP German and honors Calculus class in there, and he scored a 1920 on the SAT.

As a junior, Reuland had 35 receptions for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns.
