Charles Reeves announced via his Twitter, that he will be visiting the Syracuse Orange next week. The Steubenville, Ohio native is one of the top tight end targets in the class of 2017.

Reeves holds offers from the likes of Alabama, Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State, among others. According to his 247sports recruiting profile, Syracuse is the favorite to land Reeves. He also seems to be pretty tight with SU quarterback commit Tommy DeVito, which certainly helps build that case further.

Reeves has tremendous size as he is listed at 6-foot-6 and 230-pounds. lists the big tight end’s 40-yard dash time at 4.67 seconds.

While Reeves’s size is that of a tight end, his quickness and agility in the open field are good enough for him to play wide receiver in a Dino Babers offense. Reeves’ size in the offense could make him a nightmare for opponents in the red zone. The rising senior will want to look at how the Syracuse staff uses Jamal Custis, a player on Syracuse’s roster with a frame comparable to Reeves, and who has been effective near the goal line in limited opportunities.

Syracuse recently received a commitment from 3-star tight end Aaron Hackett, but if Reeves is interested in Syracuse, the coaching staff will certainly make room for Reeves if he were commit to the Orange. The staff did tell Hackett on his visit that they were potentially looking to add two tight ends in this cycle.
