Kingsbury says cornerback's status to be revisited after semester ends

Texas Tech’s search for a starting cornerback in March and April included several candidates, but not Jeremy Reynolds. Defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt said two months ago that Reynolds was eligible, but coaches were holding him out of spring practice to focus on priorities other than football.

“He’s handling academics right now,” Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “He’s another guy that we’ll have that conversation after this semester and see where he’s at and see where we go with him.”

Reynolds, a junior, played in three games in 2012 before suffering a season-ending knee injury, and four games in 2013.

Sophomore noseguard Anthony Smith also did little on the field this spring and didn’t crack the two-deep.

“We basically wanted him to handle academics, and so that’s what he’s been focusing on, same deal,” Kingsbury said. “We’ll see how that wraps up this spring and take it from there with him.”
