#41 LB Greg Reaves - Redshirt Junior, 6’2”, 248 lbs.
2017: As you can see in the video above, the former walk-on Reaves earned himself a scholarship right before the season and proceeded to prove himself more than deserving of it. Switching between LB and DE depending on the scenario, he ended up raking in 51 tackles, a team leading 14 TFLs, four sacks, and three pass breakups in a monster sophomore campaign.
2016: Reaves made his first appearance of the season against Florida State. He returned for the game against East Carolina, then played in USF’s last six games. He made seven total tackles, mostly on special teams.
2015: Reaves appeared in one game, against Syracuse, but did not record any stats. (It was in the first half of the season, so he was still allowed to redshirt.) He did win USF's defensive Scout Team award after the season.
How He Came To USF: Reaves played at Bradenton's Manatee High School, leading the team with 87 tackles and helping the Hurricanes reach the state playoffs in 2013. He then followed the same path as his Manatee and USF teammate Brooks Larkin. Greg went to the Air Force Preparatory Academy and played on the 2014 prep football team. (Season stats aren't available for that team.) Reaves left the academy after that year and joined USF's program for the 2015 season.
