2014 linebacker Troy Reeder continues to stock up on offers. The 6-foot-3, 232-pounder visited his most recent scholarship this past weekend and has another trip coming up in a matter of weeks.
"I was at Penn State," he said. "They offered me recently, but this was my first time ever going up for a game. It's the second time I visited; my first time was over the summer. It was quiet and I went to camp. I saw the campus through a whole different kind of feel. They were tons of people tailgating and it was a lot of fun. I got to see the coaches before the game and then we got to go out onto the field to watch warm-ups."
With the fact, Penn State offered just a couple weeks earlier. Did the coaches say much?
"They were just pretty much the same," he said. "They told me they want me to come there and they made me feel welcome. I feel like I don't know them too well yet, but I have a pretty good relationship with them. It's a great staff up there. They are putting together something special."
So, did anything else stand out about the trip?
"It was just the game day experience," he said. "I knew about it, but it was pretty crazy to be up there and on the field watching the stands fill up. It was loud and crazy, it's a fun place to play."
Reeder holds four offers from Delaware, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia.
Next up for the linebacker is a trip to Virginia on November 10th. He noted a possible visit to Rutgers as well, but that is more up in the air.
Reeder has helped Salesianum School to a 7-1 record so far.
"I have been playing well on both sides of the ball," he said. "I had a real good season last year, but I think I stepped it up again this season. I'm more mature and just trying to be a leader of the defense. A lot of teams are running away from me, so I'm not getting 10 tackles a game, but I'm helping out in other ways."
