Recruiting has taken a backseat for Newport News (Va.) Gloucester quarterback Tommy Reamon Jr. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder is focused on helping his team to victory.
"We've started off kind of rough, but we're bouncing back," he said. "We're 1-4 right now and we've been in a lot of close games. We just couldn't finish it out. We keep working hard.
"I've been doing pretty well. I'm staying healthy and improving. I've completed 35-of-79 passes for 579-yards, six touchdowns passing, four rushing and five interceptions. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied. I've made a lot of good throws and my deep ball has gotten better. I just got to continue to improve my overall game."
The schedule doesn't get any easier as Reamon Jr. and Gloucester face state champions Phoebus this weekend.
"That's a big game, I love big games."
While recruiting certainly isn't a priority, the three-star prospect is still hearing from his share of schools.
"I've been talking to a few schools," he said. "I'm hearing from Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State and Tennessee. They are interested and want to look at me more. I don't want to close any doors yet.
"I plan to deal with recruiting at the end of the season. That's when I'll start looking at taking visits."
The No. 23 dual-threat quarterback in the country continues to stay in regular contact with his offers.
"Missouri, Northern Illinois, Buffalo and East Carolina have all talked about making a trip," he said. "Aside from that, they are checking up on me to see how I'm doing. A lot of times it's not even about football, it's just a relaxing conversation."
