Reedley maximizes Reynolds' abilities
"I had a lot of offers, but I didn't get a qualifying ACT score, so I had to go JC," Reynolds recalled recently to JCFootball.com. "My high school head coach knew coach (Michael) White and he said Reedley would be a good situation for me. They have a great reputation here as a top program and they really are focused on winning and getting their players moved on to the next level."
Reynolds showed off his considerable skills under center for the Tigers last fall by wracking up over 1,900 yards and 13 touchdowns through the air, over 900 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground and 12 receptions for 235 yards and three more scores as a receiver.
"I feel like I can do it all," Reynolds said. "I can pass just as well as I can run. People don't seem to think that's true, but I'm working hard on my mechanics and my accuracy this summer and I think I'll show people what I can do."
Besides his outstanding football I.Q., Reynolds has amazing athleticism posting a 4.37 forty time, a 35-inch vertical and a very respectable 305 pound bench press.
On the recruiting front, schools from across the country have started contacting Reynolds, but most are looking at him as an athlete.
"Iowa State, California, Kansas State, Arizona, South Florida and Clemson are the main schools sending me stuff right now," Reynolds noted. "Iowa State wants me at wide receiver and the other schools have said they would like me there as well, but I want to play quarterback so that's the first thing I'm going to look at.
"If I can't make it as a QB then I'm fine with moving to another position, but the school that gives me a fair shot at playing QB that is the school that I will be considering the hardest."
Reynolds is currently on pace to graduate next May, but with a heavy course-load this summer, he could be ready to go in December and he'll have three years to play two following the season.
