Antwan Reed has decommitted from Penn State. The four-star offensive tackle in the class of 2018 from Mukegon, Michigan will head elsewhere to play his college football.
Reed initially committed to Penn State while visiting for the 2017 Blue-White weekend. He committed on the same day as 2018 offensive tackle commit Nana Asiedu. Reed is the 18th-ranked offensive tackle and 275th-ranked player overall in his class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He announced his decision to decommit via a letter on his Twitter.
A HUGE thanks to the Penn State coaching staff this has been a blessed opportunity and looking forward to what god has planned for me pic.twitter.com/3hWRZXHrpi— Ajizzle (@antwan_reed) December 8, 2017
Removing Reed from the class puts Penn State at 20 commits currently in the 2018 class.
As far as where Penn State will look to replace Reed, Rasheed Walker is the obvious candidate. Not that Reed's presence was likely blocking Walker previously, but now the door is even more open for the big-time Maryland product to make his way to Happy Valley.
