Justus Reed exploded as a sixth-year senior at Youngstown State, posting 42 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks last season, and the Florida native has been placed in the transfer portal.
Reed started his college career with the Florida Gators and eventually transferred to Youngstown State after an injury-plagued 2016 redshirt sophomore season. Injuries then cost him part of the 2017 season (he still had 5 sacks in 7 games) and a torn Achilles prevented him from playing in 2018.
That final injury led to an appeal for an extra year of eligibility. Turns out, the NCAA gave him two.
“I got a medical redshirt for that year (2016) at Florida with my knee,” Reed told 247Sports. “I appealed for my sixth year at the end of the 2018 season and they gave me two for one – that year and the year at Florida. I was completely shocked.”
Well Reed is now taking visits and in April he will visit Florida State and Virginia Tech. The VT visit will take place on April 11 and the FSU trip will begin on April 18.
