Utah Lineman Adds Pac 10 and SEC Offer

It appears Provo (Utah) Timpview offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds will be recruited after all. As we've said before, Reynolds is the son of BYU offensive line coach Lance Reynolds and that was affecting how heavy he was being recruited. With two new offers including one from his childhood favorite, things are getting interesting for the talented athlete.

Reynolds, 6-4, 310 pounds is our #8 rated offensive lineman in the West region and will move up the next time we re-rank the players. He's a big physical player who looked very good at the Nike Camp in Los Angeles running a 4.78 in the shuttle and did 25 reps on the bench.

Scholarship offers came in early from BYU, Colorado, Arizona, Vanderbilt and Utah State. Just recently, Stanford and Tennessee also offered and have moved into Reynold's top five.

"Tennessee was my childhood favorite," Reynolds said. "I've watched them for a long time and I like them a lot. They have the same colors as my high school team too so that's another thing I like about them."

Along with the Cardinal and Vols, BYU, Vandy and Oregon round out Reynolds top five.

"BYU is close to home and obviously my dad being there is a plus," Reynolds said. "Oregon is a good school and although they haven't offered, I like the program. Vandy was one of the first schools to offer me and I like the academics there."

Academically, Reynolds is carrying a 3.58 GPA and scored a 20 on the ACT.

"Stanford wants me to score in the 24-25 range so I'm going to take it again," Reynolds said. "I didn't even study the first time so I know I'll score higher."

Reynold's mother Leslie told us an interesting story on where Dallas got his unique name from.

"I was pregnant with twins and I was going to name them Dallas and Houston," Leslie said. "We lost Houston at birth. Our next child (Matt) we were going to name Houston but he just didn't feel like a Houston to me. Our third child was also a boy and he did feel like a Houston so I finally got my Houston."

Reynolds brother Matt is one of the top sophomore football players in the West region and Houston is a 250 pound 8th grader and supposedly could be the best athlete in the family.
