Greg Reid is a highly touted defensive back out of Lowndes County High School in Valdosta, Georgia. He recently signed a letter-of-intent to play college football at Florida State University. His other college preferences were Alabama and Georgia. The Atlanta Journal has published an article in which Reid explains why he elected not to attend his state's university. One of the reasons was that Athens was just a little too far from Valdosta. Yea, sure. I don't think Google Map will advise you to layover in Sandersville for the night or anything on that trip. However, the most intriguing reason the prep star gave was that he figured he would have to compete too hard to play at Georgia, as opposed to FSU. Does that mean the kid isn't willing to earn a starting position? He would rather be given the job? I would say this young man has a lot to learn. And not just about football.
