Aldine Eisenhower WR getting looks, likes LSU

The Class of 2009 at Aldine Eisenhower is probably the strongest amongst Greater Houston area teams. Well, WR Jaz Reynolds definitely qualifies as one of the best. He has the size, speed, and athletic ability that many college programs want. TPI caught up with Reynolds to get this recruiting update.

Last season the Aldine Eisenhower football team had more six sophomores in the starting line up. After a full year of hard knocks, the Eagles are back and reloaded in several skilled positions. Wide receiver Jaz Reynolds is one of those players.

The 6-4, 183-pound Reynolds pulled in 20 catches as a sophomore. This season he has surpassed that and, in the process, has gained the attention of several Division I coaches.

"I am hearing from LSU, Okalahoma, Alabama, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and Miami," Reynolds said. "I am getting the most interest (hand-written letters) from LSU, A&M, and Oklahoma State. But, I would have to say I like LSU a little more than the rest."

With LSU, Reynolds said that they have produced some big-time wide receivers and he would like to one day be one of them. He also likes the way they use a balanced attack and can move the ball by ground or air.

Reynolds camped at LSU this past summer and said he plans to return. He also will make a stop at Texas and a few other specialized camps.

Í plan to go to the US Army All-American Camp on January 3," Reynolds said. "I will also go to the Manning Passing Academy. I got a lot of reps there last summer and they really helped me develop as a wide receiver."

After a bi-district win over Houston Westside, Reynolds has 31 receptions for 620 yards and five touchdowns. Reynolds has proven that he is a very integral part of the Eagles' offense.

"I consider myself a speedy wide receiver who can make catches across the middle," Reynolds said.

Reynolds and the Eisenhower team will face Cy Ridge this Saturday afternoon in the area round of the playoffs.
