DETROIT — Cass Tech’s Jordan Reid is considered a Michigan State lean by most, but the 6-foot-4, 290-pound offensive guard has had a taste of Dixie, and he likes it.
Tennessee and Florida are among Reid’s top five schools entering into his summer camp schedule, which currently includes a stop at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp on the Wayne State campus in Detroit.
“I’ve been down to Tennessee four times, and I have a good feel for it,” Reid, a 2017 prospect, said on Thursday. “The high-intensity practices they have are what I like most about it.”
Reid said he has a good relationship with Vols’ assistant Steve Stripling, and he likes that Coach Butch Jones has had his staff recruiting him since his sophomore season.
“I plan on taking one of my official visit there,” Reid said. “Tennessee has that college atmosphere, and all the facilities are close together, and there are a lot of good players there.”
The Gators are still in the hunt, too, Reid said.
“I’ve been down to Gainesville about three times,” Reid said. “I went for their Friday Night Lights Camp last year, and the next day they had an O-Line and D-Line camp — they offered me before the camp.
“I have a good relationship with (Florida offensive line coach) Mike Summers.”
In addition to Tennessee and Florida, Reid has listed Michigan State, Michigan and Pittsburgh in his top five.
