STEUBENVILLE, Ohio – Charles Reeves, 3-star Steubenville High tight end, has committed to the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2017 class.
Reeves, who’s 6-foot-6, 240 pounds, according to his HUDL account, announced his decision on Twitter, specifically pointing out that he’ll be joining two of his friends who are Kentucky commits: 3-star wide receiver Craig Yeast II and Jacksonville, Fla. quarterback Mac Jones (also a 3-star):

For Kentucky and head coach Mark Stoops, the addition of Reeves is a very big one. According to 247Sports, the new Wildcats commitment is ranked as the No. 10 tight end in the 2017 class. He’s also considered to be the N0. 16 recruit from the state of Ohio, per 247Sports, and that’s very notable considering all the talent that comes out of The Buckeye State on a yearly basis.
Reeves also committed to Kentucky despite having a few other very impressive offers. He only has five offers to date, but they are from schools such as Wisconsin, Michigan, Purdue, Ohio and of course, Kentucky.
Stoops and his staff are off to a strong start on the 2017 recruiting trail, as Reeves’ commitment now gives the Wildcats six verbal pledges. The most notable commitments (outside of Reeves, of course) are running back Michael Warren and defensive end James Hudson. Both are ranked as 4-stars, according to the industry generated 247Sports Composite.
