Rockets Offer Pa. Running Back
One prospect who has emerged as a potential target is 5-foot-10, 195-pounder Eric Reynolds. With 2,292 yards and 32 scores on just 197 carries, Reynolds has grown into the main offensive threat for a Central Bucks South team which has just finished with a 10-0 record in just the fourth year of the football program.
Last week, in the teams final tune up for the Pennsylvania state playoffs, Reynolds added to his totals with a 259-yard, three score performance on just 22 carries. He also hauled in a 79-yard touchdown pass. When asked afterward what has helped him take his game to the next level afterward, his answer was simple.
"My speed is probably my best thing," Reynolds said. "I think I do need to work on my blocking probably."
As a result of his recent big-time play, interest in Reynolds has spread in the recent weeks. In particular, there have been six schools that have taken notice, including the Toledo Rockets.
"I'm hearing from Temple, Delaware, UConn, Toledo, Bowling Green and Colorado," Reynolds told Rocket Digest on Tuesday night. "All of them except for Colorado have offered me a scholarship."
One of the most recent additions to Reynolds' offer list, the Rockets are making an attempt to push their way into the mix for the talented tailback, and, while Reynolds hasn't yet had an opportunity to talk to the Rockets head coach, he did have a visitor from Toledo earlier this week.
"Toledo's offensive line coach (Stanley Clayton) was in my school two days ago," Reynolds continued. "He said that he's going to bring me down for an official visit. We didn't talk about a date and time though. We just talked about academics and what I'll study in college, the position they want me for, and whether or not I could play early."
For now, however, visits will have to wait. As Reynolds and his Titans prepare for their run at a district crown, Reynolds, who has seen the campuses at just Delaware and Temple thus far, is not ready to focus on recruiting.
"I don't have a certain college that I want to go to right now," Reynolds concluded. "I'm just waiting for my season to finish before I narrow it down."
But will the Rockets receive an official visit when the time is right?
"Yeah, Toledo will definitely get a visit."
