Seth Reece left West Point still beaming about his decision on the flight back to Georgia Monday night
Earlier in the day, Reece committed to Jeff Monken and the Black Knights in the coach’s office to wrap up a weekend visit.
The Fannin County (Ga.) tight end picked Army over an offer from Air Force. Reece visited Air Force in late November.
“The (West Point) visit just blew me away,” said Reece, who is 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds. “I met a lot of people in two days and they all just treated me like family. I think one thing that sets the Army visit apart from the Air Force one was the energy. It just felt different at West Point.”
Reece said the West Point’s history and the football team’s brotherhood also impressed him. The recruiting staff led by on-campus coordinator Nick So’oto, did “an unbelievable job over the weekend, Reece said. Reece received a home visit from Army offensive coordinator Brent Davis last week before his trip to West Point.
“It was always a dream to go there because I love this country and I love football,” Reece said.
Reece brings position flexibility to Army’s 2022 class. Reece completed 58 percent of his passes, throwing for 1,116 yards and 13 touchdowns, rushed for 1,202 yards and 15 scores and caught 13 passes for 171 yards and three TDs. He also made 36 tackles and forced and recovered a fumble in helping Fannin County to a 10-2 record.
