Reese, 6’1, 260 pounds, is from San Antonio where he was a three-star prospect coming out of Madison High School. Scout.com rated him as the 44th best defensive tackle in his prep days.
In early December, Reese announced he would be transferring after K-State’s 2017 bowl appearance after playing in only eight games in his career as a Wildcat.
According to 247Sports, Dana Dimel was Reese’s main recruiter back in 2014, there’s also been a Twitter and message board rumor that Dimel’s son, Winston, a potential grad transfer at running back could also become a Miner.
Stay tuned, as Dimel starts to mark his thumb print on the UTEP program.
