82 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Zach Reuter

New, 8 comments

In which BracketCat counts down the 82nd day until kickoff with a profile of wide receiver Zach Reuter.

Michael Egnew was a great tight end for Missouri. Zach Reuter won't be following in his footsteps because Gary Pinkel put all his chips in the DGB basket..

Zachary Cale Reuter (b. March 14, 1996) is an intriguing prospect with some size who will play wide receiver.

Reuter played for Rock Bridge High School under head coach A.J. Ofodile and was a unanimous first-team all-state selection by the Missouri Football Coaches Association, which also named him to the all-district team.

He also was selected to the American Family Insurance All-USA Missouri Team and named The Columbia Daily Tribune's Offensive Player of the Year after hauling in 81 catches for 1,545 yards and 24 touchdowns.

His receiving yardage ranks sixth in state history, while he finished two touchdowns shy of tying the state record held by former Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

Reuter totaled 140 receptions in his two-year varsity career, and broke school career records for yards (2,317) and touchdowns (33). He was named all-district as a junior and also competed in basketball. Watch his highlights here.

Many do not expect Reuter to make much of an impact at the collegiate level — he had no stars on Rivals and he has been reported to be a grayshirt — but I think his high school production speaks for itself.

If nothing else, I hope he does become very successful mostly so we can make fun of Mizzou for not locking him up when he grew up in their back yard, instead of spending time wooing the alleged batterer with helicopter visits.
