Reavis enjoys WFU trip

The ACC offers keep rolling in for C.J. Reavis, a defensive back from Thomas Dale High School in Chester, Va. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound 2014 prospect spoke with DeaconSports.com on his latest offer and his recent visit to the Wake Forest campus.

"It surprised me how much I liked it," Reavis said on his Wake Forest visit. "I didn't really know a whole lot about it going in so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up liking it a lot. It's a small campus where everybody knows each other. It's seems like a family there. The coaches were very cool, down to earth people. They offered me when I was there this Friday.

After Virginia Tech offered last March, Reavis has received eight more offers (seven from ACC schools) from Boston College, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

"Basically Wake Forest told me they how I come up and make tackles," he said. "They said they need safeties who can play up and help out in stopping the running game. They told me I'd be a great fit."

Reavis could end up becoming one of the most offered prospects in a talent-rich year in Virginia. He's said he's hearing from the likes of Alabama, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

"I'm probably not going to drag it out," Reavis said on his decision. "I need to take some more visits and see who else is going to offer me. I'll probably go to a lot of camps over the summer and decided after that before the season starts. All the schools that have offered me are about even. I just need to do my research on each school, see how well I bond with the coaches and the players, and how well I like the campus."

This was Reavis' second season as a starter at Dale. He made over 100 tackles, two interceptions, and forced three fumbles in his junior season. He was named All-District, All-Region, and All-Metro. He plans to returned to Wake Forest this summer for camp. His Demon Deacon recruiter is Jonathan Himebauch.
