Former Manatee High linebacker Greg Reeves is now a scholarship football player for the University of South Florida.
New Bulls head coach Charlie Strong awarded Reeves, a sophomore who attended Air Force Academy Prep School following his Manatee High graduation in 2014, a full scholarship on Thursday.
Reeves played special teams last year, tallying seven tackles, as a preferred walk-on.
USF announced Strong’s scholarship offer to Reeves in a video posting to Twitter.
In the video, Strong commends Reeves’ hard work in fall camp.
“With that great effort, we’re getting ready to award him a scholarship,” Strong says in the video.
Reeves’ teammates then celebrated with him.
