The message from the Hawaiian islands is very simple. Samson Reed is good and he is coming to a backfield near you. Reed is one of those defenders who is as equally entertaining as a high caliber offensive threat. Those Jevon Kearse and Warren Sapp types if you will. He is the type of athlete that can capture the crowd and keep their attention because of the way he interrupts an offense. The coaches at Kahuku High School are more than excited to see how far Reed can go. Coaches and scouts at the college level are getting their recruiting approaches ready for this skilled athlete. The buzz among PAC 12 conference schools may be the reason why Reed has gained national attention as a class of 2018 student-athlete. The hushed tone on Samson Reed is that no one has been able to cap or even scale his potential. What does that mean? It simply says that his skill set, while being in a class of former greats is capable of going to a level which usually converts into immediate action as a college freshman. At nearly 6’3 and closer to 230 pounds, the agile and hasty footed Reed can star at all defensive line positions. Let’s not put his strength on a backburner either. Most offensive lines can and will be impeded as he takes on most double teams with a juggernaut style. Again, it’s important not to put the young man into the college football hall of fame yet, but it is very important to recognize the potential star athlete’s trek to the elite group labeled great. With the Mountain West conference catching the word from PAC 12 schools about Reed, fans can expect this young man’s recruitment to expand as far as the SEC. While Reed and his Kahuku teammates prepare to make a run at the state title, college scouts are padding and penciling up for much anticipated note taking on the multi-star athlete. Stay tuned.
