Honors & Awards
- Academic All-Big Ten (2012)
- Two-Time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll
Sophomore Ryne Reeves is expected to be a contributor for the Nebraska offensive line during the 2013 campaign. The 6-3, 295-pound Reeves is part of a group of talented young players who will look to earn playing time behind five veteran seniors who return for the 2013 season.
Reeves is likely to contend for time at offensive guard, but did not get a chance to make his case for playing time during spring ball. Reeves suffered an ankle injury during the first week of practice that sidelined him for the rest of the spring, but he is expected to be at full strength for the start of fall camp.
A graduate of Crete High School, Reeves was one of 28 Huskers to earn academic All-Big Ten honors in 2012.
2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Reeves was a reserve guard and appeared in Nebraska’s wins over Southern Miss, Arkansas State, Idaho State and Minnesota.
Reeves redshirted and was a standout on the scout team offensive line.
Before Nebraska (Crete HS)
Reeves was one of four in-state players in Nebraska’s 2011 class. Reeves was a key figure in a Class B state championship season for Crete High School in 2010. Reeves helped Coach Chuck McGinnis’ team rack up more than 3,900 rushing yards en route to a perfect 13-0 record. In addition to his dominant lead blocking, Reeves was also a force on the defensive side, recording 73 tackles and two tackles for loss from his tackle spot. He also forced a fumble in the Class B state title game, a 34-0 victory over Elkhorn.
Reeves was a Super-State selection by the Lincoln Journal Star and an All-Nebraska pick by the Omaha World-Herald. Reeves was also named the honorary captain of the Class B all-state offensive unit by the Lincoln Journal Star.
Reeves was a first-team All-Nebraska pick by the World-Herald as a junior in 2009. He lined up at guard for the Cardinals, but was named to the Rivals.com All-America team as a center. He was regarded as one of the top five center prospects in the country by both Rivals and Scout.com, and Rivals listed him as the second-best prospect in Nebraska.
Reeves was the first player to commit to the 2011 class, doing so in the summer before his junior year. Despite his early pledge to NU, Reeves received an offer from Stanford and interest from several schools, including Miami, USC and UCLA.
Ryne was born on July 14, 1992, and is the son of John and Mary Ellen Reeves. He is an accounting/finance major and was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll each of his first two semesters. Reeves has been active in outreach work, volunteering his time with local hospital visits, Husker Heroes and Husker Hotline.
