Cedric Reed (Cleveland HS) is being heralded as one of the top junior defensive ends in the state of Texas. Reed, who was selected to the Army Combine second team, recorded 86 tackles and 11 sacks his junior year which also earned All-District honors. The 6'-5", 243 pound Reed confirmed to Websider's Taylor Hamm that he will be taking his first junior day visit of the year to Texas A&M this weekend.

"Yea I am going up to Texas A&M," said Reed. "They offered me early so I thought it would be a good opportunity to meet with the new defensive line coach, since the other one left for Kansas, and check out the facilities. We are going to the basketball game on Saturday—I'm excited about that because I'm right in the middle basketball season back home. A&M is a really nice school and I like Coach Sherman a lot.

Reed is taking his time with the recruiting process. "Not at the moment," said Reed when asked if he has a timetable on when he wants to make his ultimate decision. Will the Cleveland native seriously consider A&M down the road? "I don't know yet. I want to take all of my visits and take my time with my decision. I wouldn't say I'm not going to consider A&M, I just don't know enough about them yet. I don't have a number one school so I guess A&M is up there with the rest of them."

Reed already has offers from Baylor, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. Texas has also showed a ton of interest and Cedric expects an offer will come from the Longhorns in the next month or two.

Reed didn't have a favorite college team growing up but he does know what he is looking for when choosing the school he wants to play collegiate football.

"Good academics, coaching staff, and a place where I can play early," said Reed when asked what he is looking for when choosing a school."

Cedric recognizes he needs to improve some facets of his game before his senior year.

"I need to improve my speed and overall strength. Those are my goals before I go into my senior year." Reed is set to arrive in Aggieland around 8AM on Saturday, and Websider will have the latest on Reed's visit once the junior day is over.
