» Five-Time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll
Senior Ryne Reeves has battled injuries throughout his Nebraska career, limiting his playing time for the Huskers. Reeves’ latest setback was a knee injury suffered against Iowa last season, keeping him out of the bowl game. Reeves saw limited work during spring ball, but should be at full strength for fall camp, when he will try to earn the starting center job. Reeves also has experience playing guard for the Huskers.
Reeves saw regular action last season as the No. 2 center, helping Nebraska rank among the top 20 nationally in scoring and rushing offense. Reeves was limited by injuries each of the past two spring practices, including a broken ankle in 2013.
Off the field, Reeves is a three-time academic All-Big Ten selection. He is on track to earn his degree in economics/management in December.
Reeves played in 11 games, including a start in the regular-season finale at Iowa, after starter Mark Pelini was injured. The line paved the way for Nebraska to set a Big Ten modern-era record with 784 yards of total offense in the opener against Florida Atlantic, and helped senior I-back Ameer Abdullah to a record-setting season. Abdullah rushed for more than 200 yards four times in 2014. The offensive line also ranked among the Big Ten’s best units in protecting the quarterback.
Reeves played in 10 games as one of the Huskers’ top reserve guards. He helped the Nebraska offense excel against strong Michigan State and Penn State defenses, as I-back Ameer Abdullah topped 100 yards in both of those games. Reeves was also a regular on PAT and field-goal units as a blocker.
2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Reeves was a reserve guard and appeared in Nebraska’s wins over Southern Miss, Arkansas State, Idaho State and Minnesota.
Reeves redshirted in his first season and was a standout on the scout team line.
Before Nebraska (Crete HS)
Reeves was a key figure in a Class B state title for Crete High School in 2010. Reeves helped Coach Chuck McGinnis’ team rack up more than 3,900 rushing yards en route to a perfect 13-0 record. In addition to his dominant blocking, Reeves was also a force on defense, recording 73 tackles and two tackles for loss. He also forced a fumble in the Class B state title game, a 34-0 victory over Elkhorn. Reeves was a Super State selection by the Lincoln Journal Star and an All-Nebraska pick by the Omaha World-Herald. He was named the honorary captain of the Class B all-state offensive unit by the Lincoln Journal Star.
Reeves was a first-team All-Nebraska pick by the World-Herald as a junior in 2009. He lined up at guard for the Cardinals, but was named to the Rivals.com All-America team as a center. He was regarded as one of the top five center prospects in the country by both Rivals and Scout. Despite an early pledge to NU, Reeves received an offer from Stanford and interest from several schools, including Miami, USC and UCLA.
The son of John and Mary Ellen Reeves, Ryne was born on July 14, 1992. He is an economics/management major and has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll five times. Reeves has been active in outreach work, volunteering his time with local hospital visits, Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes and Husker Hotline.
