Pac-12 schools interested in CdM's Reinhardt

Several Pacific 12 Conference football programs are looking at Corona del Mar High junior standout defensive end Tim Reinhardt, Reinhardt's father, Bill, said in an email on Wednesday.

Bill said the schools interested in Reinhardt, a 6-foot-4, 235-pounder, who can also play tight end, are Arizona, Arizona State, Utah, Washington, Washington State, Colorado, USC and Oregon.

Other schools following Reinhardt are San Diego State, University of San Diego, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada and UC Davis, Bill said.

He added many of those schools have watched and filmed his son's spring practices at CdM, the latest being Washington and Colorado State. USC plans to visit CdM within the next 10 days to check out Reinhardt, Bill said, and Oregon, the Pacific 12 Conference champion, has requested video on Reinhardt.

Last season, Reinhardt helped the Sea Kings win the CIF Southern Section Southern Division title, the program's first section crown since 1989.

Reinhardt earned Daily Pilot Newport-Mesa Dream Team, All-CIF Southern Section Southern Division and second-team All-Pacific Coast League honors after finishing with 46 tackles, 10 sacks and two fumble recoveries last season.

Reinhardt is the uncle of Katin Reinhardt, a senior basketball star at Mater Dei, who led the Monarchs to the CIF Southern Section Division 1-AA and CIF State Division I titles last season. Katin is bound for UNLV.
