Alabama lineman commits to UH
Hoover (Ala.) High School defensive lineman Korey Reynolds made an oral agreement to accept a football scholarship from Hawaii yesterday, according to a source close to the situation.
Reynolds, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound end, chose UH over Houston, Southern Miss, Illinois and Ole Miss.
Reynolds left Hawaii after his recruiting visit Sunday leaning toward UH.
"Hawaii's definitely at the top of my list. ... They make you feel like you're part of their family," he said on Sunday.
He was unavailable for comment last night.
Reynolds is the fifth defensive lineman to commit to the Warriors this season. He can make his commitment binding on Feb. 7, letter of intent day.
