A week ago, we talked with Mission Viejo (Calif.) tight end Konrad Reuland who said he had narrowed his list to about six schools with three standing out. Since then, we've heard a lot of rumblings that the talented athlete not only had one of the schools high on his list but could be close to committing.
Reuland, 6-6, 240 pounds is the nation's top rated tight end prospect and has about six schools he's seriously considering. Notre Dame, UCLA and USC are his top three followed by Stanford, Miami and Nebraska.
We've been hearing from several sources going all the way back to the summer, that the Irish were the team to beat for Reuland. The tight end recently set up a trip to South Bend and we've even heard talk that he could commit shortly following the visit.
"I've heard the same thing but it's not true," Reuland said. "Notre Dame is a great school and I'm definitely looking very hard at them but I really can't say they're my leader or that I'm leaning there. I know some have said I might commit on the visit but I very committed to taking a few other trips after I visit Notre Dame which will be when the play Navy on (Nov. 11).
"I also want to take visits to UCLA and USC and the plan is to still commit around Christmas time. I've thought about committing during the Army All-American game but I plan on having my decision made before then and I don't want to wait to make my decision just to do on T.V."
Reuland took in the UCLA- Oregon State game over the weekend and said he was impressed with the Bruins offense and how they use the tight end.

UCLA is recruiting me hard and that's why they're in my top three along with Notre Dame and USC but like I said, I'm not leaning to one of those schools over the other two right now and won't be making any decisions until I visit all of them."Here to view this Link.
