Two currently in the lead for Reuland

After leaving the Notre Dame football program last fall, Konrad Reuland re-entered the recruiting process for a second time. The former four-star tight end prospect from Mission Viejo, Calif., hasn't decided which program he will be a part of next season. But two colleges currently have the lead.

"Right now Stanford and Colorado are my top two," said Reuland, who currently stands in at 6-foot-6, 260-pounds. "Oregon is also kind of in the mix but they got into it so late. I am thinking about possibly taking an official visit there in a few weeks but nothing has been officially set up as far as that goes yet.

"Hopefully I'll have a decision before signing day. If not, I have the luxury of being able to wait a little bit longer."

Reuland took an official visit to Colorado in mid-October and he took an unofficial visit to Stanford the weekend of December 1st. His younger brother Warren Reuland plans to sign with the Cardinal early next month.

"I was kind of acclimated with Stanford coming out of high school because I took two unofficial visits out there back then," Reuland said. "They offer outstanding academics to start with. And if I went there I would be able to play with my brother and on top of that I think it is a program on the rise. I think Coach Harbaugh and their whole staff is going to do some pretty good things in the next few years. It would be cool to be a part of that.

"I have applied to Stanford and I am waiting to hear back from their admissions office. I should know within the next week or so what my status is as far as that goes."

Tight ends coach Kent Riddle and head coach Dan Hawkins have kept in contact with Reuland from the Buffs' staff since his trip out to Boulder. They stopped by for an in-home visit in December.

"I really like Colorado, too," Reuland expressed. "I love their coaching staff. I have a bunch of friends on their team, guys that I have known for a while and that I feel real comfortable around. It seems like a really fun place to be, it seems like a fun school. I believe I would have a good opportunity to make a difference there next year, too."

Reuland is currently taking classes at Saddleback College. He is on pace to earn his AA degree after the spring semester. "I'll be able to play beginning the fourth week of next season," he added.
