The 6’7″ offensive lineman received his first NCAA offer from Illinois State last week, and will continue to pursue NCAA interest throughout the 2020 cycle. These types of situations aren’t unfamiliar north of the border, and is similar to the commitment of CFC100 Jake Taylor last season, who gave his word to the Golden Bears’ staff while trying to land an offer in the NCAA. There was lots of interest, but ultimately Taylor decided to hang around Alberta for his university career, so you never know how these types of scenarios will play out.


Reese IV recently won Lineman MVP at the inaugural CFC Prospect Game in Ottawa, and played a key role as a grade ten during Harry Ainlay’s Alberta Tier I Championship in 2017. He helped lead them back before bowing out to CFC50 St. Francis last season, and was named to the CFC All-Canadian Team for his efforts. In the process, he also received other U Sports offers from St. Mary’s and Ottawa.

Reese IV is the son of former CFL defensive tackle Albert Reese, who spent five seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos from 2000-2004 compiling 154 tackles, 17 sacks and a Grey Cup championship. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers in 1997, and attended Grambling State for university. His Great Uncle, Donald Reese, played for the Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints, San Diego Chargers, and Birmingham Stallions of the USFL.
