Three-star safety Ed Reynolds out of Woodberry Forest, Va. took an unofficial visit this past weekend. Where did the 6-foot-3, 196-pounder go?
"My visits went really well to Michigan," he said. "I went with Aramide (Olaniyan) and our coaches wife. She took us up there. It was an unofficial type thing. Neither one of us had been up there, but we got to tour the facilities and watch that amazing game. Overall it was a great experience. It was the craziest thing I've been in and a pretty amazing environment."
What's Reynolds status with the Wolverines?
"They want more film," he said. "They are looking for corners and safeties and I'm going to send them film through my senior year and we'll see how it turns out.
"But, overall I liked it up there. Ann Arbor as a college town was pretty cool. You can tell coach Rodriguez plans to do big things at Michigan. It was great to meet him and spend time with him and learn about the program."
Reynolds isn't sure about his next move.
"I'm trying to figure out where I want to take officials," he said. "There are teams that are interested that want to take a look that haven't offered like Michigan, UCLA and Vanderbilt. They want film.
"Then, I continue to get calls from North Carolina, NC State, Duke and Stanford. It's hard to schedule visits cause most of my games are on Saturdays, but I'm trying to work it out. I haven't scheduled anything yet. I may try to do it when we have a couple Friday games and then after the season in November."
The Commonwealth prospect maintains that his leaders are Duke, North Carolina and Stanford.
In the meantime, football is kicking off this week for Woodberry Forest.
"We had a bye our first week of the season, so we open on Saturday against Bishop Ireton," he said. "That's just how our schedule works out. I'm trying to put recruiting aside for a bit and focus on the football season. I'm excited for my senior year.
"My goals are pretty simple. I want to make it through the season healthy and I'd like to try to be all-state and all-conference. Even if I don't play great, I want to turn out wins."
