Bio

Position: Defensive Line

Previous College: Butler County Community College

Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship

Chaquil Reed (b. Dec. 4, 1991) might be one of my favorite players on the team, if only for the fact he told Charlie Weis where to shove it, decommitted from KU and switched to the purple a week before National Signing Day.

And he has good bloodlines, too — his cousin is current Tennessee Titan Kamerion Wimbley, who starred at Florida State for four years before the NFL. The weight is there, as well: Reed has gained 19 pounds since last year.

Reed played extremely sparingly last season, which unfortunately cost him his redshirt. But the good news is that he gained experience that paid off in spring practice, when he seized one of the starting defensive tackle positions.

Entering the fall, he appears to be one of the players we can pencil in as a starter, but there's still competition there.

Reed helped to lead Butler County Community College to a combined 22-2 record in 2010 and 2011, collecting 43 tackles and five sacks en route to 2011 all-conference honors. He also tallied 21 tackles in 2010.

At Wichita East High School, where he was a teammate of Arthur Brown, Reed combined for 216 tackles, including 83 as a senior, in three seasons. He collected 11 sacks as a senior and 16.5 for his career.

For his high school efforts, Reed was named an all-city performer in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He played fullback and defensive tackle in high school, and also lettered in basketball.
