Three-star offensive tackle William Reed will stay on the West Coast. Rated as one of the top 15 prospects in his home state of Washington by both 247Sports and Rivals, the Sammamish product will bolster the trenches in Cal football’s class of 2021.

A 6’5”, 260-pound lineman, Reed began his athletic career as a basketball player and brings athleticism and quickness to the offensive line. He has also been lauded for his hand-eye coordination and football IQ, though he is relatively small compared to other linemen. Reed is an almost perfect balance to fellow class of 2021 commit offensive tackle Bastian Swinney, who brings size and technique, but needs to improve his quickness.

Reed will join the Bears after his time at Eastside Catholic High School, becoming the second Bear to hail from the program in as many recruiting classes — four-star tight end D.J. Rogers joined Cal’s class of 2020.

Offensive line coach Angus McClure’s recruitment of Reed gives the Bears the No. 5 class in the Pac-12 and the No. 44 class in the nation, according to 247Sports.
