William Reed, a 6-5, 265 lb offensive tackle from Sammamish, Washington, has committed to California. Reed picked the Bears over offers from Michigan, Colorado, Duke, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and others.
Reed is a consensus 3* recruit. In a scouting report, national recruiting editor Brandon Huffman pointed out Reed’s athleticism and intelligence but noted that Reed needs to add strength.
Reed is the Bears’ tenth recruit of the 2021 class. He joins Bastian Swinney, from Minnesota, as incoming recruits for Coach Angus McClure’s #gOLdenbears. The more big boys in the trenches, the better.
Reed attends Eastside Catholic, where current Cal freshman DJ Rogers played. Last fall, Reed was the single non-senior starter on Eastside Catholic’s offensive line.
Reed also is a part of Ford Sports Performance, a Washington-based athletic center that produced Rogers and fellow Bear Justin Baker.
In his personal life, Reed has learned to speak Mandarin Chinese.
Welcome to Berkeley, William! 金熊加油！
