Every summer a few kids who are relative unknowns begin to make names for themselves and one player who keeps moving up the charts is Temple WR/DB Tevin Reese. The 5'11 165 pound senior to be boasts some impressive numbers including a 4.48 forty yard dash and a 37 inch vertical leap along with a 400 pound squat max.

Tevin who started all last year in the secondary for the District 13-5A champion Temple Wildcats is being recruited on both sides of the ball, however because Temple runs the Wing-T, Reese doesn't put up the numbers other players in the spread offense may throw up. The talent Tevin displays however, can't be denied as he is a precise route runner who catches the ball with his hands out in front and rarely lets a ball get to his body. "I work really hard at being a good receiver, I think that's one of my strengths is that I am very technically sound, my speed and ability to sit down and find holes in the defense are strengths also," said the Temple WR/DB.

Not only is Reese a major factor on the gridiron, but he's also a track star as he qualified for the Class 5A State Track Meet in May in three events (High Jump, Long Jump and Triple Jump). As things stand right now it looks to be four horse race for Tevin's services as Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU and LSU are all in the mix with LSU coming into the picture recently. Reese holds no offers at this time, but he has camped at Baylor and will be attending LSU's camp at the end of July and he plans on visiting TCU which is just a couple of hours away. Tevin has already been to Baylor on an unofficial visit.

Tevin who attended the Combine in April, posted the best vertical leap at the event and was second to teammate Lache Seastrunk in the event's fastest forty time. "I am looking for a school with good academics and a place where I have a chance to earn early playing time," said Reese when asked what he's looking for in a school. The Temple WR/DB says he plans on majoring in Business.

A timetable for a decision has also been set for Reese who may get recruited to run track as well, "I'd like to decide before the end of the season at the latest," said Reese. As for 2008, Temple now has the bulls eye on their backs after winning the District 13-5A title last year. "My goal is to help the team win no matter what, we know teams are gunning for us because Temple is back but we still want to win district first and make a run in the playoffs."
