Massachusetts defensive back Armani Reeves commits to Penn State

Cornerback Armani Reeves of Catholic Memorial School in West Roxbury, Massachusetts has given a verbal commitment to Penn State. The 5-10, 180-pound prospect chose the Nittany Lions, Notre Dame and Michigan. He had over 20 scholarship offers.

Reeves, who runs a sub 4.5 forty-yard dash, plays both receiver and corner for Catholic Memorial. As a junior, he had almost 1,300 total yards and 16 touchdowns, while intercepting four passes on defense. He is also a dangerous punt returner.

Reeves' first cousin is NBA hall-of-famer Charles Barkley.

"The way they want to use me on offense and defense and special teams, it really excited me," Reeves told a Penn State fan site after he announced his commitment at a press conference at his high school. "It just feels like home."

The commitment of Reeves caps a big week in recruiting for the Lions, who also landed blue-chip prospects Tommy Schutt (defensive tackle) of Illinois and Eugene Lewis (receiver) of Pennsylvania.

Reeves will join high school teammate Camren Williams in the Nittany Lions class of 2012. He is Penn State 16th commitment.
