Kansas QB is an Athlete

Nick Reid of Derby, Kan., is considered the top quarterback prospect in the state of Kansas. But while he excels on the field, the whole recruiting process is new to him, his family said.
Reid is not only one of the top quarterback prospects in the state, but he is also one of the top decathlete prospects.
"Nebraska and several other schools are recruiting him for track and football," Reid's father said.
Reid is an extraordinary athlete with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash and a 35-inch vertical leap.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder is also being looked at to play safety by some schools.
"Since the eighth grade he has only lost three games," his dad said.
He has been the starting quarterback since his sophomore season.
As a quarterback he can throw the ball over seventy yards in the air and at safety his coach "calls him the best he has seen in his program."
His statistics this year are pretty good, considering he sat out three games with a minor knee injury and never played in the second half of most games.
Reid has around 600 yards passing with seven touchdowns and zero interceptions. He has had six total interceptions in four years of playing quarterback.
He also has 400 yards rushing this year and averages 11-yards and four rushing touchdowns.
He has two offers from Oklahoma State and Kansas.
Right now those two schools are his favorites, because they are the only two Division I schools to offer him. He continues to get letters from Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Missouri to name a few.
