Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Brady Reiff

There's not video of Brady on YouTube so here's one of his brother:

As for what Reiff's commitment means for the rest of this cycle, the verdict is: Not a whole lot. He's likely a project, mostly due to size, and it's not as if Iowa is going to stop recruiting Hilliard or Jashon Cornell (who is coached by former Iowa defensive end Broderick Binns, because connections matter) simply because it already has a defensive end in the fold. The Hawkeyes have filled the pressing needs without leaving the immediate area -- all eight commitments are from iowa or bordering states -- and the Hawkeyes could focus more heavily on skill positions from outside the immediate area now. But the relative lack of attrition in the program in recent years has this looking like a small, supplemental class that could be finalized early, and quick pickups like this don't hurt.

COMPARABLE. Reiff has to add a few pounds to get to Drew Ott's 270 pounds. Brady is a tad short to draw comparisons to his brother, Riley. He's said to be a tad quicker too and perhaps he'll stick at the defensive edge. Like James Daniels, we'll get our first look at Reiff this spring camp.
