#67 Reid Najvar
Position: Offensive Line
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Reid August Najvar (b. July 26, 1994) is a physical player who has seen limited action in his first two seasons, but could be primed to take over one of the four vacated starting spots along the offensive line as a junior in 2016.
After playing against UTEP and Oklahoma State in 2014, Najvar competed for more playing time as a sophomore.
Having switched from right tackle to left guard, then center, he played against South Dakota and Kansas in 2015.
Najvar was Purple's starting center in the last two spring games, but Dalton Risner still is the unquestioned starter.
A first-team all-district pick and captain as a senior at Klein Oak High School under David Smith, Najvar was named to the 2012 preseason All-Greater Houston first team and The Houston Chronicle's 2012 Top 100 football recruits.
His brother, Jordan Najvar, played tight end at Baylor for four years after redshirting the 2009 season at Stanford and was signed as a rookie free agent by the Dallas Cowboys following the 2014 NFL Draft.
