Miami Beach (Fla.) safety David Reed claims offers from Utah State, Vanderbilt, and Western Michigan. He is also drawing interest from Auburn, Louisville, Marshall, Maryland, and others.
So far, the 6-foot, 202-pound defensive back has hit the road to check out one school.
"I visited Auburn," Reed said. "I went over there for their Big Cat Weekend. It was cool. They treated me like family. I really appreciated it. It was just a visit around the campus, they took us around and showed us the stadium. I got a chance to talk to all of the coaches."
While he enjoyed his time at Auburn, it is a school far outside the Southeast that currently sits atop Reed's list of options.
"Right now I would say the one school standing out is Western Michigan because they were the first school to recruit me," Reed said. "They have been coming after me hard."
The South Florida prospect has yet to schedule any official visits but has four destinations in mind.
"I don't have the exact date but when I was talking to Coach (Bill) Cubit from Western Michigan, he said they were going to bring me up after the football season," Reed said. "I definitely want to go to Maryland and Vanderbilt, those are the two schools I really want to visit. Also Utah State, I want to see the mountains."
With regards to a final decision, Reed is working with no specific timeline.
"I have no idea," Reed said. "I might just wait out until Signing Day."
During his career at Miami Beach, Reed has played safety, inside and outside linebacker, and also contributed as a punt returner.
