Perhaps the number one prospect from the Beehive State this season is Matt Reynolds (6-6, 270, 4.9) from Provo (Utah) Timpview. He is a member of the Rivals.com pre-evaluation top 100 team and will be a four-year varsity starter for one of the state’s best football program.
Reynolds already has early offers from Arizona, ASU, BYU and Utah. He is currently getting early recruiting action from USC, Stanford, Notre Dame and Nebraska.
A two-way standout, Reynolds shines as a defensive end and offensive tackle.
On the defensive side of the ball, Reynolds, racked up 80 tackles and collected eight sacks as a junior. His performance saw him selected for the second time all-state and all-region.
Reynolds is also a pre-season All-American for 2004.
The scouting report on Reynolds is that he’s very agile, athletic and quick for a big man. He has excellent vision and is a very instinctive player. Reynolds is the type of football player that seems to see things before they happen.
Utah likes Reynolds’ talents as a defensive end and Arizona sees him as an outstanding offensive left tackle.
Most schools like Reynolds for his talents on both side of the ball. They will bring him in and see where he can help the team most.
One of things we like about Reynolds most is he doesn’t care where he plays on the next level. He just wants to help the team.
What is Reynolds looking for in a school?
“Location, coaching staff and tradition will all be key in my decision,” Reynolds said. “I also want to play for a good solid stable program that is good year in and year out.”
