The No. 1 tight end in the country, Konrad Reuland confirmed that he won't be taking his second official visit of the season this weekend to Stanford. What was the reason for the 6-foot-6, 239-pounder from Mission Viejo, Calif. to cancel his trip?
"I just knew in my heart I wouldn't end up going there, but I'm still looking at other schools and we'll see how it goes," he said. "I'm looking at Notre Dame, UCLA, USC, Miami and Nebraska. I plan to narrow my list next week down to three."
What stands out about each of the schools to the No. 42 player in the country?
Notre Dame: "They are just a great program and I love it. I took my official there and know a lot about them and it's a good school."
UCLA: "Going there would allow me to stay in southern California. I like the way they utilize the tight end too. The coaching staff seems to have things rolling again there and they're a team on the rise, it's very exciting."
Southern Cal: "USC is a perennial powerhouse and they would also allow me to stay in southern California. Coach Carroll also seems like he'd be an awesome guy to play for."
Miami: "From a tight end standpoint they are hard to pass up and it's very intriguing. They are one of the best schools all-around every year and they have pretty good academics. They also send a lot of guys to the NFL."
Nebraska: "They've done pretty well this year and they are another team on the rise. I expect next year they'll do even better and coach Callahan is instilling a new West Coast offense that I think I'd thrive in. From a sentimental standpoint, I also like him as a coach as well."
Reuland hasn't scheduled any other official visits yet.
The four-star prospect plans to announce his decision in the next couple months.
"The latest I'll decide is at the Army All-American bowl on January 7th, but it could be as early as next month sometime."
