The 5-foot-9, 185-pound four-star prospect made hosted both programs for in-home visits earlier this week, before shutting things down and spending some time with his family to mull over his decision. On Saturday night, Reeves made that decision as he called coaches from both programs to give them the news. We caught up with Reeves' godfather Brent Williams who told us where Reeves will be spending the next four years.
Williams is also the father of four-star linebacker Camren Williams, Reeves' teammate and best friend. Like Reeves, Williams was also committed to Penn State before switching to Ohio State last week. Williams added that during the last several weeks, they tried to focus on what was best for each individual kid and did not treat their recruitments as any type of package deal.
The former Penn State commit had made official visits to both programs in the last two weeks and was expected to make an official visit to Penn State, but eliminated the Nittany Lions after taking those visits. According to Williams, the decision between Ohio State and Michigan was agonizingly close.
Reeves participated in the first annual Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl earlier this month and was a standout, both during practice week, and during the actual game. Reeves is rated the No. 219 player in the nation by Rivals.com and the No. 17 cornerback in the nation.
