The No. 1 tight end in the country, Mission Viejo, Ca.'s Konrad Reuland has scheduled his first official visit. Who did the 6-foot-6, 239-pounder schedule it with and when will he take it?
"It looks like I'm going to end up doing an official to Notre Dame when they play Navy on November 12th," he said. "I want to go out there and see what gameday is like. I really like Notre Dame because of coach Weis and his offense. I like that the program is on the rise and they have recruited me really hard. They make me feel wanted and it's just an amazing place to play."
The Rivals100 prospect took an unofficial over the weekend to UCLA.
"They are another one of the teams I'm strongly considering that is in my top three along with Southern Cal and Notre Dame. I just went there for the game," he said. "It was great to be there and the offense is really good. I enjoyed watching the offense as they had it rolling. I especially like that they utilize the tight ends a lot and coach Embree knows what he is doing. After the game, I went into the locker room and the coaches talked about how they'd love to have me and my thoughts on the game."
Last week Reuland paid close attention to the game of the year between Southern Cal and Notre Dame.
"That was one of the best games I've seen and it shows that both of them are right there on top and either one can win a national championship," he said. "I came into the game wondering how Notre Dame would do and they proved that they can hang in there."
Rumor has been swirling that the four-star prospect may be committing sometime soon?
"I'm sure there are rumors out there, but I know I'm going to be looking at deciding between early December and early January," he said. "I'm still arranging my officials with UCLA and USC, but I should at least have all three of those visits done by December."
Meanwhile, Nebraska, Miami and Stanford are on the outside looking in for Reuland.
This season the No. 7 player in California has helped Mission Viejo to be one of the best teams in the country as they are 7-0.

I'm not getting as many catches since I'm double and triple covered which is a little frustrating, but that leaves the other guys on single coverage and it's good to see them get the numbers," he said. "My brother and our other receiver are making a lot of catches and it's just a lot of fun. Even though I'm not catching the ball as much, I've improved on my blocking a lot since last season, it's a lot better now for me."Here to view this Link.
