One of the top prospects in the Lone Star state will be off the board on Friday. Defensive end Cedric Reed (Cleveland, Texas/Cleveland) is set to make a commitment at his high school and the 6-foot-5, 255-pound two-sport star at the 3A program roughly an hour north of Houston has a final five of Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma and Nebraska. Reed has been on the campuses of Texas and Texas A&M multiple times in recent weeks with the Longhorns considered to be the front-runner headed into Friday's announcement. He has also been on the campuses of LSU and Oklahoma the last few months. Reed could fit into either a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive front along with the possibility of growing into a 4-3 defensive tackle down the line.
