Ben Reeder made an official visit with WKU over the weekend

Simpsonville, S.C. prospect Ben Reeder committed to Western Kentucky on Monday

The Western Kentucky coaching staff filled a special teams need on Monday afternoon with the commitment of Ben Reeder.

The Simpsonville (S.C.) Mann long snapper collected a scholarship offer from the Hilltoppers staff last week, quickly scheduled an official visit and tripped to Bowling Green over the weekend.

On Monday evening he spoke with head coach Mike Sanford and committed.

"I couldn't be more excited," he told WKU Insider.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect has a five-star rating from Kohl's specialist camp, is No. 2 nationally with ProKicker.com and was selected to the Blue-Grey All-American game.

A four-year starter at the position, Reeder also holds preferred walk-on offers from North Carolina and home-state South Carolina.
