Already regarded as one of the top juniors in the state of Texas, Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson running back Joseph Reese is following in his older brother's footsteps to be a very highly recruited player.
There is no question of his talent. The only question is how much faster will the younger Reese explode onto the scene compared to his brother, 2006 prospect Terrell Reese. He's already got offers as a junior to prove his talents.
"Texas A&M has offered in writing along with Arizona," Reese said. "LSU and Oklahoma are verbal offers. LSU told my coach that I should be seeing something coming pretty soon."
Reese is not big on comparisons so he doesn't like to be put against his brother. While the duo is tough to stop on the football field, they may not always be playing on the same team.
"It's not really a big deal to me on where he picks," Reese said about Terrell's recruiting process. "I think to be honest I'll wind up going to Texas in the end because I've always wanted to go there. It's early so I'll look around, but that's always been a favorite for me."
Another thing Reese isn't real concerned about is keeping up with exact stat totals. His concerns are on his season, but admit that the recruiting process is starting to weigh on him early.
"It's a blessing and real exciting, but at the same time you have some seniors that are jealous about you already having stuff coming your way," Reese said. "So it can get old in that sense sometimes."
It appears that things are already off to a hot start. Though Texas hasn't offered, it appears that they have a very early lead.
"We'll see what happens," Reese said. "That's just what I like right now."
