Upon receiving the verbal offer from the Knights, Reed had a lengthy conversation with an assistant on George O'Leary's staff.
"Central Florida just offered me last night," Reed said. "I talked to Coach Brent Key. He said that I was the number one running back on their list as of right now. He wants me to come down to visit."
The conversation with Coach Key at UCF made a big impression. Reed currently has the program at the top of his list.
"I would say I have a leader right now, probably Central Florida," Reed said. "Coach Key said that they have a great tradition of running backs coming out of Central Florida. They really want to run the ball and put the ball in the hands of their playmakers. He feels like I could be a great playmaker for them down there and contribute to the school a lot and make plays. That caught my attention a lot.
"Now I have to find out for myself," Reed added. "I am going to look up if they have had a lot of great running backs come out. I also like that I feel like I could really contribute to the team if I end up going there."
Reed said he was supposed to have visited Louisville last weekend, for their junior day, but was unable to attend due to a track meet. He has yet to take any visits but hopes to change that in the coming months.
"It has just been so busy that I don't know when I am going to be able to take any visits," Reed said. "I know I want to go visit UCF, Louisville, South Florida, South Carolina, Notre Dame, and USC because they have all been sending me a lot of mail and showing me a lot of interest. They all want me to go to their campuses. I really want to check those schools out."
At this time, Reed has no specific timeline for a decision.
