Reeves impressed with PSU

West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial athlete Armani Reeves was one of two Massachusetts superstars that visited the Penn State campus this weekend.

The other was teammate and best friend Camren Williams. He enjoyed the trip so much, that he actually committed to the coaching staff during the visit.

"I was definitely excited for Cam," said Reeves. "With him being my best friend, I always like to see him happy, so that was great for him. The coaches were definitely excited for that, seeing those guys so excited was definitely a treat."

Reeves came with the entire Williams family, along with their head football coach, Alex Campea, Thursday evening. They stayed until Saturday afternoon, with Reeves adding that the visit was a great time.

"Everything was pretty nice, I've always liked Penn State a lot and all the coaches welcomed not just me, but Cam as well with open arms. It was definitely a good feeling, I got to hang out with Khairi Fortt for a little bit and it was an overall great visit.

"Another kid committed as well, Brent Wilkerson, I was with him when he committed. It was great, seeing all those guys commit while they were there. I was happy for everyone."

So will Williams' commitment to the Nittany Lions have any affect on his best friend?

"I don't think so," said Reeves. "I've been saying from the start that my decision is going to be based on what I like and what fits me. Although I'm real happy for Cam and it would be cool to play together, it's not going to play a major part in my decision. At the end of the day, it's what fits me and where I want to play."

Reeves was believed to be a defensive back prospect for Penn State, but according to what the coaches told him, that may not be the case.

"They actually said that I can play whatever position I want to play. I can play their slot receiver, or I could play corner. They said I would definitely do kick returns right off the bat. They pretty much said I can do anything for them and be a success in their program."

Reeves has been traveling often lately, so he most likely will take a few weeks off before visiting his next school.

"I think that my next one will probably be to Maryland," adding that it would most likely come towards the end of April. "I just joined a national 7-on-7 team, so I'll be doing that a lot more."

Reeves isn't completely sure what camps he will attend this summer. He hopes to have that figured out by the end of April.
