Rivals250 quarterback Jordan Reed out of New London, Conn. put together an impressive junior season in which he earned all-state honors after accounting for over 2,200-yards of offense and 36 touchdowns. The big season has already resulted in a couple of offers for the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder.
"I've got offers from Boston College and Duke so far," he said. "I got Boston College a couple months ago and Duke in the past couple weeks.
"They both have really good quarterback coaches and are really good schools. I like the backgrounds of the coaches and the fact they have sent players to the pros."

Already this spring Reed has visited a couple schools.
"I visited Boston College in February," he said. "It was a real nice campus. I think Coach Jags is a real good coach and it's a real nice place.
"Then I went to Connecticut. They have really nice facilities. They are the newest around. I liked that."
A number of other schools including Florida, Maryland, Iowa, Connecticut, Michigan and Marshall are also showing interest.
Is there an early leader for the Connecticut prospect?
"I've always wanted to go to Iowa," he stated. "My family is from Iowa and I've got relatives still there. All my relatives live in Iowa.
"One of my dreams is to go there. If they offered, I'd have to talk to my mom it and look at it more. It's been a dream to go there and play in front of my family."
While Iowa may have a slight edge, the four-star prospect is looking at other schools and discussed what he wants in a college.
"I want a good education and a good quarterback coach. I want a mentor who can teach me," he stated. "I think I'd like to study sports medicine. As far as location goes, it doesn't matter."
In the coming months Reed is attempting to visit Iowa and Florida. He also is looking at attending the Elite 11 quarterback camp and the Elite College Combine.
