Chaquil Reed center of in-state battle

1/29/2012

The battle lines have been draw.

Charlie Weis and Bill Snyder are going head-to-head in their first major recruiting battle. In the center of it is Butler County (Kan.) Community College defensive tackle Chaquil Reed.

Reed, one of the top prospects in the Kansas Jayhawk Junior Community College Conference, committed to Kansas recently and raved about the Jayhawks after an official visit to Lawrence.

"There's a great opportunity at Kansas," he said after his commitment to KU. "You could really start to help build something there."

But the commitment didn't stop the 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive tackle from taking an official visit to Kansas State this weekend. While on campus in Manhattan, Reed tweeted "I hate bein lied to an thats why my options opend back up."

When he returned from his official visit to K-State, Reed said he had a good time and enjoyed his visit with the Wildcats. Reed also said he remains up in the air about his final destination.

"I'm not making my decision until Tuesday," Reed said.

Reed didn't want to elaborate on what his status is.

Is he still with the Jayhawks, or has he flipped to the Wildcats?

The answer to that question and who wins in the first battle between Weis and Snyder should come soon.
