He won’t waste the snub, using it instead for motivation.
He also knows he's not the only one licking his snub wounds.
"I talked to Dominic Walker about it. He's a great receiver, and he didn't get invited. He shoulda been there," Reus said.

He could have transferred, like many players do in similar situations. His father Jim Reus said he wanted no part of that. He wanted to stick it out with his friends and finish where he started.

Something tells me Jordan Reus will get that little break, and then some.
