Northern California is home for one of the west coast’s best quarterback prospects for the class of 2005. Our mystery guest already has one offer on the table from a Pac10 school with more on the way.
Not only can this quarterback throw the ball but he has the athleticism that is highly coveted by D-I schools today.
The quarterback in question is Kyle Reed (6-2, 185, 4.65) from Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds.
Reed already has an offer from Cal and according to McClymonds head coach Alonzo Carter, UCLA, USC, ASU and Wisconsin could pop any day with an offer.
Does Reed have any early leaders for his services?
“Cal and UCLA are my early leaders,” Reed said. “I like Cal because I was able to work with Coach Tedford and I like what he’s done at Cal. I like that UCLA has a minority as a coach.”
Reed was sidelined with an injury and only played in six games. In those six games Reed threw for 1,500 yards and ten touchdowns.
The scouting report on Reed is that he has a very strong arm, has quick feet and is a great decision maker.
Reed was impressive enough to be invited to the Elite 11 as an underclassman and now he is working on improving his skills with Northern California quarterback guru deluxe Roger Theder.
Reed is currently benching 275 pounds and squats 385 pounds. Look for both numbers to improve, head coach Alonzo Carter told Rivals.com that his young quarterback is a workout warrior.
“Kyle is a good athlete,” Carter said. “But make no mistake about it, Kyle is a quarterback.”
“Kyle is very coachable and he can make all the throws,” Carter said. “He can throw the skinny post, the post corner, the out, you name the throw and Kyle can make it.”
