Reid shows patience with the process

One of the top returning running backs in the JUCO ranks this year is Mt. San Jacinto RB Superiorr Reid (6-2, 205). He put up big numbers for the Eagles as a freshman last fall and he's got plenty of schools interested in what he can do, but he's still waiting for that first offer to roll in...

Reid prepped at Arlington (Riverside, Ca.) High School and enjoyed a solid career there, but he was unable to qualify for a scholarship so he decided to sign with the Eagles and he told recently that he's glad he did.

"Coach (Gene) Ramsey did a good job of recruiting me and I liked the offense here," Reid said. "He kept saying 'you'll get the ball a lot in our offense' and that's really all you had to say to me."

As a freshman last year, Reid totaled over 1,500 yards and he scored 16 touchdowns for a team that went 9-2 and lost in two overtimes to L.A. Pierce in the Patriotic Bowl.

"We run a one-back scheme and I started every game, so I got lots of chances to make an impact," Reid said. "I have good speed (4.43), but I am probably at my best between the tackles.

"I'm a downhill runner. I make my read and I go."

Even with his impressive physical numbers as well as his outstanding productivity, Reid isn't resting on his laurels.

"You always have to work on getting better," Reid admitted. "I've been in the weight room and I'm really focused on getting stronger in my lower-body so I can break more tackles and be that much tougher to bring down."

On the recruiting front, Reid is still waiting on his first offer, but he's been hearing from a handful of schools that seem to be interested in what he can do on the football field.

"I've been talking a lot with Texas A&M, Arizona State, Kansas and Illinois and they all seem to like me," Reid said. "None of them have offered yet and I think it's just because they want to see how my classes are coming along. I'm good in that area though, so I just have to be patient and keep working and controlling the things I can control."

Reid is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
