Reynolds excited about visit

Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley cornerback Jeremy Reynolds will make his second-ever trip to West Texas this weekend as he takes his first, and maybe only, official visit. Reynolds visited unofficially back at the beginning of fall camp, but this visit came about mostly to give his mother an opportunity to check out the scene on the South Plains.

"I just really wanted to have the chance to get my mom down there and let her take a look at the environment," Reynolds said. "I know she's wanting to talk to some of the academic advisors and get a feel for what I'm going to be getting into. I really just want to let her see what Lubbock is all about. I'm sure she'll love it just like I did."

Since committing to Texas Tech in August, Reynolds has remained in frequent contact with assistant coach Robert Prunty.

"I spend the majority of my time talking to Coach Prunty. We have a great relationship. Coach P is a really cool guy," he said. "He's easy to talk to and down to earth. He's someone that a young guy can get along with really well, but also respect as a mentor at the same time."

Reynolds says that he's still hearing from N.C. State and Wake Forest. Things have slowed somewhat for the 5-foot-9, 163-pounder since the decision was made to go with the Red Raiders.

"NC State and Wake Forest have still been on me. I haven't heard as much from them since I committed to Tech, but they're still sending me mail and stuff like that," he said. "I've tried to tell them how much I appreciate the attention, but that I'm loyal to Tech. I think they're starting to get the idea."

After his upcoming visit to Lubbock, the 2011 prospect indicates that no other visits will be scheduled with any other programs.

"Tech is the only one I've got scheduled, and probably the only one I'll have," he said. "I don't think I'll be taking any other visits anywhere. Since I've already made my decision, and I'm happy with it, I'm just going to hang with Tech. I'm happy to be a Red Raider."

Reynolds committed to Tech over offers from California, East Carolina, New Mexico State, North Carolina State, Oregon State, and Towson.
