Markeis Reed has been hearing more from one school in particular and the Napa (Calif.) Vintage defensive end is hopeful a strong start to his senior season earns him another offer.
Boise State has gotten much more involved with Reed, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound prospect who recently looked good at the B2G Elite Camp and he hopes things pick up with the Broncos soon.
"I sent them my film quite a while ago and the coach e-mailed me and said since they started the process a little later they want to see a little bit more so they're going to wait until my first game or two," Reed said. "What they see from me there will determine whether they offer me or not.

"That's one of the big things that I'm really focused on right now is starting the season off right. It's been SC, it's been Washington, it's been all the bigger schools that have said they want to see a little bit more out of me so they want to wait until my season comes around. It's been a real motivator."
So far, Reed has landed offers from Colorado State, Iowa State and San Diego State and he said BYU and some Pac-12 schools have gotten involved as well.
USC is his dream school but it's still unclear whether the Trojans will offer especially because of their scholarship limitations.
If they do, though, Reed said he'd commit on the spot.
"There is a favorite and it's USC," Reed said. "I understand they have limits on their scholarships but I feel like I can play there.
"Coach (Clay) Helton made it clear it's a possibility based on my first three games. Coach Helton said after I participated at camp that they'd be honest with me whether they'd end the process there or take it into my season and they decided to take it into my season.
"I liked everything I saw there and as far as school and tradition if they made an offer I'd commit right that second. Every other school I'd have to talk it over with my family before I made a decision."
