We're heading down the homestretch toward to the playoffs and some JUCO wideouts continue to put up…
Reynolds Pledges to Texas A&M
"Yes, I called Coach Sumlin and committed to A&M today," said Reynolds.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound freshman played his high school football at San Antonio Jay High School and had a scholarship offer from Oregon State among offers from other non-D1 institutions. When a last minute numbers crunch forced the Beavers to rescind their offer days before signing day, Reynolds decided to go the junior college route and go to Tyler JC.
"When Oregon State fell through, I decided to go to junior college and hopefully play myself into a high D-1 offer," Reynolds said. "I was a full qualifier out of high school, so I can transfer at mid-term and practice immediately."
That's exactly what happened when Reynolds excelled and became a favorite target of former Texas A&M QB Matt Davis. In a late season stretch, he caught multiple touchdowns in four straight games.
"My confidence is high. I feel my strength is my height and vertical to go get balls over defenders," Reynolds said. "I've got pretty good speed and I run good routes. I just try to make plays and do my job whether it's a big catch or a block downfield for my teammate."
Reynolds and his Tyler teammates have one final game this weekend when they play in the Garden State Bowl in Pittsburg, Kansas. The following weekend, Reynolds will take his official visit to College Station. A month later he will be enrolling at Texas A&M and joining his new teammates for offseason workouts.
