Virginia Tech lands Youngstown State pass rusher Justus Reed

Youngstown State defensive end Justus Reed will play for Virginia Tech this year.

Justus Reed announced that he will be transferring to Virginia Tech and continuing his football career with the Hokies. 

According to, Reed had set up official visits to Tech, Baylor, Florida State and Texas Tech prior to the NCAA banning in-person recruiting.

There were roughly 10 plus schools trying to land the Youngstown State pass rusher. Reed believed that V-Tech felt right for him and this will be a huge year for him. We had him as a projected draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

By signing up you can receive a free stock and could land a free stock of Apple, Ford, or Facebook. It is simple and costs you nothing to sign-up.

“It just feels right,” the defensive end told the website. “Without going to visit anywhere, I got the best feel from them. I have developed a good relationship with the coaching staff and just think it’s the right place for me. I think I will fit in really well and will help contribute and win a lot of games and, ultimately, an ACC title.”

Reed will be using his 7th year of eligibility to play for the Hokies, last year at Youngstown State he was a monster and gave every team fits.

Despite missing the 2018 season due to injury, he is coming off the most successful season of his collegiate career in 2019. Reed was voted as a first-team all-conference performer in the Missouri Valley, after finishing tied for the conference lead with 13 sacks. 

Reed, a 6’3″ 240 lbs. pass rusher, is a graduate transfer who would be eligible immediately.
