National Signing Day 2017: 3-star DE Tramar Reece inks with Indiana

One of the first commits of the class, another Tampa area 3-star prospect is officially headed to Bloomington.

Thomas Allen might have the most name recognition — the family name goes a long way. Juwan Burgess has the hype. Whop Philyor plays the wideout position. But the first cog in the Tampa-to-Bloomington pipeline this season? That’d be Clearwater defensive end Tramar Reece.

The now-departed and Tampa-area native Greg Frey & Mark Hagen picked up Reece’s commitment back in June 2016 — and Reece stuck by the Hoosiers through the coaching changes, even becoming one of the biggest cheerleaders and recruiters for #HoosierArmy17 on Twitter.

HOW HE STACKS UP

Reece is a consensus 3-star player, and the 85th ranked Weak-Side DE in the class. He held offers from Duke, Louisville, and other programs.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR INDIANA

Reece adds depth and a future potential playmaker to Indiana’s line, which was a big focus in this class. But don’t underestimate what he meant for the class in other places — his recruiting of others assuredly played a factor with the Tampa pipeline.
