San Diego West View (CA) offensive tackle Taylor Reich officially visited SMU back in October, but left without an offer. Interest was mutual, but SMU had other offensive lineman they offered first they were waiting on.
It's now December and Reich still doesn't hold an offer, patiently waiting to see if Coach Klemm and crew come to the table. This weekend, he will officially visit Nevada, another team he feel he could be on the verge of getting some paperwork from.
"I do I think they will officially offer me up there on my official, I've had a verbal from them for a while now," said Reich to PonyStampede.com on Wednesday night. "There win over Boise last week was a huge win for them. They proved they are an elite team. You have to give a lot of credit to Coach Ault, he is a great football coach."
Reich has been in contact with Coach Klemm, but not in the past two weeks.
"At this point I can't really tell what is going to happen, from what I have heard from Klemm, they are basically in a holding pattern, waiting for others to commit, but we will see what happens," said Reich. "I'm not really sure at this point on when I would like to have a decision made. I have a lot of schools still out there evaluating and are not going to make decisions until later this month, so really at this point I am undecided."
Even if Nevada does officially offer during the weekend, don't expect Reich to jump on board right away.
"If i truly loved it up there, then I could see it happening, but I wouldn't commit right away, I would want to come back home and talk with my family about it first."
It that point it would give SMU one last chance to offer, reminding Reich the Mustangs beat Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl last season.
