Future RedHawk QB Discusses His Decision
As he began garnering more and more attention from coaches, Reardon realized that he had already found what he called "a perfect place" in Miami. "It really is all there at Miami- the campus, the staff, the people. I really can't lose," he continued. "The program and history were big selling points. Also, the Farmer School of Business has a prestigious reputation," said the future Business major.
Because of his height, Reardon, may have been "under the radar" after throwing for over 1700 yards in each his sophomore and junior seasons. After winning the QB MVP Award, Ohio State coaches informed him that he would have received an offer if he were an inch taller than his current 6'1" frame. Miami's coaching staff apparently did not take issue with his height after last year's team won the MAC title and the GoDaddy.com Bowl with a quarterback at the same height (Austin Boucher). "I really don't think my height is a concern," said Reardon who offers outstanding touch in precision routes and superb footwork in the pocket. Another facet that isn't highlighted in his recruiting videos is Reardon's arm strength. "There is a time and a place to show off strength. Our offense doesn't have deep out-routes across the field or throws like that, but I have the ability to make those plays and I think I've displayed that at camps this summer," said the future RedHawk. Miami fans have no doubts and are happy to welcome Colin Reardon to an excellent recruiting class for 2012.
