Connecticut Offers Reynolds

Warrington, Pa., native Eric Reynolds picked up his first scholarship offer in late January from the Connecticut Huskies and has been hearing from other east coast programs as well. We caught up with him to get his thoughts on his first offer.

Eric Reynolds, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back from Central Bucks South High is currently being recruited heaviest by Boston College, Temple, Rutgers and Penn State, but has only been offered at this point by Connecticut. Although he's not very familiar with the Huskies, he is very interested in learning more.

"I was really excited to get the offer from Connecticut, but I was also surprised to be honest with you," Reynolds explained. "I mean, Coach (Randy) Edsall and Coach (Matt) Cersosimo came all the way down to meet with me in person and both seemed really nice in the short amount of time we were permitted to speak to one another. Coach Edsall is tall by the way, really tall!"

"I don't know much about Connecticut, but I'm looking forward to going up for spring ball and checking them out," Reynolds said. "They sent me information about their last recruiting class and I know Robbie Frey from Lehighton is a very good player. I saw them play once this year and really enjoyed watching Terry Caulley. My game is actually similar to his in a lot of ways, except I think he's a bit more powerful then me while I rely more on my moves. I wouldn't even mind playing defense for them if need be. I don't have much experience at defensive back, but I think with coaching I could do well back there."

As a junior at Central Bucks South, Reynolds averaged 6.9 yards per carry, rushing for 1350 yards and 18 touchdowns.
