Darrell Reed had a tremendous junior season and several schools have been in contact. Reed names his early favorites.

Buffalo Grove, Illinois loses one of its top guns on defense in 2003 as All-American Tommy Zbikowski is headed to South Bend, Indiana to play his college football for Notre Dame but the Bison are still loaded.

Linebacker Eric Andino (6-4 220) already has several offers and anchoring the defensive line is 6-foot, 330-pound Darrell Reed.

Reed will be a three-year varsity starter in 2003 and he had a very good junior season. No scholarship offers yet but Reed should sign a D-1 letter of intent come February.

Darrell Reed is very nimble for his size and moves well in traffic. He runs a legit 5.1 40-yard dash and when he wants to play, he’s hard to block.

“I’ve been hearing from Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas, Illinois and Wisconsin,” Reed said.

“Those schools would be my favorites right now. I’m completely open and I’m going to listen to everyone that has an interest in me.

“I just missed Wisconsin’s junior day and I’ll be going to an Illinois junior day here pretty soon. As far as my summer plans, I’m up in the air right now. I plan on attending the Michigan Nike Camp for sure.”

Reed was named all-area and honorable mention all-state as a junior. He had 70 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and eight sacks in 2002.
