ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on the East Football Recruiting Blog with Catholic Memorial's Armani Reeves and Cam Williams, the state's No. 1 and No. 2 prospects respectively, who are both committed to Penn State.
Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien was officially introduced as the Nittany Lions' new head coach on Saturday. Yesterday, the Andover native and St. John's Prep graduate reached out to both Reeves and Williams; both are trying to schedule an official visit to Happy Valley.
Speaking to CM assistant coach Brent Williams -- the father of Cam and godfather of Reeves -- Brown writes:
Brent Williams, Camren's father and Reeves' godfather, has been the point man during each player's recruitment. He said both players are currently trying to schedule an official visit to Penn State.
“I think he just called to introduce himself,” Brent Williams said. “Now that Coach O'Brien is in place we are trying to learn as much as we can about him and the new staff.”
Camren Williams, the No. 2 prospect from Massachusetts in the Class of 2012, took an official visit to Ohio State last month. He is expected to choose between the two schools.
Reeves, the top prospect from Massachusetts, also heard from Ohio State on Sunday night. Michigan coaches met with Reeves last week, and Notre Dame has asked him to visit as well. He is expected to play defensive back at the college level.
“Camren is pretty easy, as he with either stay with his [Penn State] commitment or switch to OSU,” Brent Williams said. “We are trying to learn as much as we can about OSU.
“Armani is a little more difficult. His basketball schedule makes it tough for him to visit. Right now Michigan is a priority visit. With Ohio State just entering the picture we are trying to schedule a visit.”
Both Reeves and Williams were named to ESPN Boston's MIAA All-State Team last month.
