Western Kentucky has extended a scholarship offer to one of the nation's top-rated long snappers.

Ben Reeder of Simpsonville (S.C.) Mann received the offer on Wednesday and quickly made plans to trip to Bowling Green for an official visit with the Hilltoppers program.

"Very excited about it," he told WKU Insider.  "I'm flying out tonight and will come back Saturday morning."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect has a five-star rating from Kohl's specialist camp, is No. 2 nationally with ProKicker.com and was selected to the Blue-Grey All-American game.

A four-year starter at the position, Reeder also holds preferred walk-on offers from North Carolina and home-state South Carolina.  He hopes to make his decision prior to Wednesday's National Signing Day.

"I'm hoping to be done deciding by Monday," he said. "Will definitely sign on signing day."
