East Texas football is always some of the best in the entire nation, and one of the best programs at producing talent every single year is Longview, Texas. This season the Lobos have numerous Division I prospects, including tight end Adrian Reese, who has been busy also playing AAU basketball this summer with the Texas Blue Chips.
"That's been what I've been doing the most," Reese said.
"It's been going pretty good. We're about to head up to the Great American Shootout in Denton. I'm trying to put them in every game. I'm a power forward, and I average about 10 points a game. I'm not afraid to go up and dunk on a guy if I have to. That's a great feeling to put it in their face."
There are plenty of high quality college football programs that are in Reese's face. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder earned all-district honors in 2004 and has offers from Baylor, Houston, Texas Tech and TCU on his resume. He said he also just recently earned an offer from Stephen F. Austin and after leaning early to Oklahoma State another team seemingly has pushed in front.
"I don't know if I'd call them a leader," Reese said, "But Texas Tech has been recruiting me the hardest. They're doing everything they can to get my attention. I think I could be a good fit in their offense."
Oklahoma State has yet to offer him a scholarship and if the Cowboys did, they'd probably be right back in the hunt to land him. Because of basketball, Reese has not attended any summer football camps.
Bill Bedenbaugh is recruiting him for Texas Tech. Reese could not recall the names of the other coaches heavily recruiting him at this point.
"That'll change as we get back into football," he said.
Reese had six receptions for 139 yards and two touchdowns as a junior.
