Junior Troy Reeder of Wilmington (Del.) Salesianum School has already established himself as one of the top linebackers in the region with six early offers. Now with his season complete, he believes he may add a few offers to his total before heading out on the road.
Reeder, 6-foot-3 and 232 pounds, currently has offers from Pittsburgh, Maryland, Penn State, Rutgers, Virginia and Delaware.
"Rutgers, Maryland, Penn State and Virginia have really been the four that have really been after me since early on in the recruiting process," said Reeder.

Aside from this group of schools, there are a handful of other schools that have amped up their level of interest recently.
"Of those who haven't offered, Stanford is definitely the one that's been really starting to make a move," said Reeder. "They have come by to see me twice in the past three months. There's also Georgia Tech, Nebraska and Miami."
Reeder is ready to hit the road for a few upcoming visits, but is still working out his schedule.
"I have not made any final decision yet on that, but I'll be figuring it out within the next few weeks," he said.
On the field this fall, despite plenty of personal success, Reeder's season ended in disappointment.
"We lost in the state championship game," he said. "Personally the season went well. I was named the Defensive Player of the Year."
There was one specific aspect of his game that Reeder believes he drastically improved.
"My coverage got a lot better," he said. "I played a lot of safety this year when we played teams with spread offenses and I think I really benefitted from it."
