The recruitment of Rivals250 defensive back Mook Reynolds has kept Virginia Tech fans on the edge of their seat. The star out of Greensboro (N.C.) Northern Guilford committed to the Hokies in early February but has since picked up numerous big offers from North Carolina, Tennessee and Notre Dame.
"Things with Virginia Tech are really good," said the 6-foot, 170-pound Reynolds. "We're in touch with each other and we talk pretty often. Coach Gray, coach Wiles and I talk about schemes, the adjustment from high school to college, the excitement of the game and stuff like that."
Still, the added attention from other major schools is causing Reynolds to wonder what else is out there.
"Notre Dame is a school that recently offered," he said. "I like them and I just want to go up there and take a visit and go from there. Right now I don't know much about them so I can't say much. I'm not sure when I'll visit. They have a lot of tradition and have had a lot of success up there. Being recruited by them means something."
Even with the Fighting Irish and these other suitors coming after him hard, Reynolds is planning on returning to Blacksburg this coming weekend.
"I'm going to take a visit up on Virginia Tech on June 8 for a visit," Reynolds said. "They're having a camp but I'm probably just going to hang out."
The Hokies are also recruiting Reynolds' sophomore teammate C.J. Freeman, a running back.
Reynolds won the defensive back MVP award at the Charlotte edition of the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour.
