Bio

When Cedric Reed decided to return for his redshirt junior season with the Texas Longhorns, things felt a lot better surrounding the Texas defense. Reed has played in 33 games for the Longhorns, including 19 straight starts. He earned second-team all-Big 12 honors in 2013 after leading the team in forced fumbles (5), was second in sacks (10), second in quarterback hurries (16) and second in tackles for loss (19). Was named to the Ted Hendricks Award mid-season watch list and will be counted on to provide leadership and production as the Longhorns enter a new phase in 2014.

High School

While prepping at Cleveland High School in Cleveland, Texas, Reed was a prep All-American and all-state performer, as well as earning all-district honors at defensive end all four years. Coming out of high school, he was ranked as the 20th best defensive end in the nation and was selected to play in several all-star games. As a three-year starter, he tallied 344 tackles, 40 sacks and six fumble recoveries. Also played basketball for Cleveland and was named the District 22-3A Offensive Player of the Year as a junior, district MVP as a sophomore and newcomer of the year as a freshman.

College

Played in seven games as a true freshman in 2011, posting three tackles and a pass breakup in limited action. In 2012, Reed played in all 13 games as a reserve defensive end and on special teams, starting the team’s final six games. Ranked second on the team in quarterback pressures (13) and was second among defensive linemen in tackles with 46. As a junior in 2013, he started all 13 games at defensive end. He was third on the team in tackles with 79 and one of only two FBS players with at least five sacks, four pass breakups and five forced fumbles.
