2013 Depth Chart In an offense that might be focusing on the tight end more, he becomes just the third scholarship tight end on the roster. To say the least, he could be in line for early playing time if he's ready.
2014 Depth Chart One of the two other tight ends, Eric Waters, is a senior, so he and Sean Culkin represent the de facto two-deep at this position.

Being a major asset for a team considered one of the top programs in the state of Texas, Trinity (12-1), Reese spent most of his time either in the backfield or outside as a possession wide receiver.

"I did a lot of Z-back and H-back stuff," Reese said. "This year will be my first year at tight end and I just started doing it during this spring. I felt like I did really good not only going out there and catching the ball but blocking too. I can be a real disadvantage for linebackers that I go up against."

Reese is a big high school wide receiver who will likely transition into more of a tight end / H-Back role at the next level. He has good height with adequate bulk and will need to work to continue to fill out his long lean frame. He flashes a solid pair of hands with the ability to be able to extend for the ball. Flashes the ability to be able to adjust to balls thrown outside his frame. […] He will need development working from an in-line position in particular and will need to watch pad level and continue to develop overall technique. If allowed to block on the move and get a running start and utilize angles he demonstrates the ability to develop into an effective blocker.
