The Iowa Hawkeyes earned their eighth verbal commitment for the class of 2015 when 3-star weak-side defensive end Brady Reiff gave his pledge to the Hawkeyes.
Reiff joins a trio of 3-star offensive lineman in the Paulsen twins, Landan and Levi and Jacob Newborg, a pair of 3-star pro style quarterbacks in Jack Beneventi and Ryan Boyle, 3-star athlete Drew Cook and 3-star safety Jack Hockaday.
The 6’3, 215-pound Reiff is from Parkston, South Dakota and attends Parkston High School – 01.
Reiff is the brother of former Hawkeyes’ standout and current Detroit Lions’ offensive tackle Riley Reiff.
24/7 Sports offers a scout’s take on Reiff.
Reiff doesn’t have the size of his brother, who was 6-foot-6 300 pounds, but he does have all the intangibles you look for in an Iowa football player. I’d like to watch him a bit more before giving you a full scouting report, but he’s quick, athletic and aggressive as a defender. He’s a chippy player who will fight to stay off blocks, and he can make tackles in open space.
Reiff is ranked as the 49th-best weak-side defensive end prospect, the second-best overall prospect in the state of South Dakota and the 1,102nd-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
