4* Muskegon OT Decommits From PSU

Submitted by Mercury Hayes on December 7th, 2017 at 8:46 PM

Four star offensive tackle Antwan Reed from Muskegon has decommitted from PSU. Reed was offered by UM as well as Georgia, Florida, VT, MSU and some others. He is 6-5, 326 and the 18th ranked offensive tackle; 51st overall player in the state.

I would like all of the tackles, please.

Edit: Appears 24/7 ranking may be in error as one commentor pointed out that he was previously in Florida. If he truly is a four star, he would be a top five or 10 player in the state.

It was so easy to beat the recruiting system on those games. You could make a couple guys and adjust their attributes to where you wanted them and then make them poorly ranked kickers/punters and recruit them, get a commitment and change them to the spot you wanted them later.

Can someone explain to me how he’s a 4 star but 51st in the state? No chance there’s 50+ 4 stars in the state right now in the 2018 class

Edit: half th fan base beat me to that question

That looks like a typo on 247. With a composite score of 0.9049 he should be the 4th ranked player in the state in between Hutchinson and Hayes. 51st would be in 2-star range. Hopefully he's decomitting because he wants to go blue.

He's got huge reach and is very strong. If he got to 310 I think he would be an ideal tackle. I thought he was going to be slow & cumbersome watching him take the field but on the snap he moved real well. Muskegon plays a veer based spread offense that runs 90% of the time and he got upfield a lot better than I expected. If we can land him it's a take IMO. All the physical tools are there.

Muskegon grad here. The tea leaves suggest he may be MSU bound. MSU is going after Muskegon QB La'Darius Jefferson hard. Jefferson has won most of Michigan's high school player of the year awards.

I'm sure Reed and Jefferson would love playing together again. I just wish it would be in Ann Arbor instead if East Lansing.

The book on Reed earlier in his career was that he had a lot of physical talent but took a lot of plays off. He transferred down to IMG Academy, but things didn't work out, and he came back to Muskegon. Whether it was the IMG experience or something else, he seems to have taken some steps forward physically, but more so mentally.

Muskegon's OL was something to behold this year. For a size comparison, here's how the Big Reds stacked up against an NFL team.

2017 Dallas Cowboys O-line (tackle-to-tackle)

6'5 320
6'2 302
6'4 320
6'4 310
6'4 315

Ave. 6'4 313

2017 Muskegon High School O-line

6'5 330 (Bradford)
6'0 250 (Johnson)
6'1 285 (Mills-Ellis)
6'2 304 (Cooper)
6'6 315 (Reed)

Ave 6' 3 297

Everyone save Reed returns next year for Muskegon
