05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: Round 7/240 -- Tevin Reese, WR, 5-10, 163, Baylor...Like speed? Then you will like Reese. He is not going to dazzle anyone with his solid hands or nifty routes, but what he can do is run, and run fast. Consider that of his 25 touchdown catches at Baylor, 22 of them went for at least 40 yards. He is a burner, something the Chargers lack. - The Sports Xchange

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Chargers' picks: Round 7/240 -- Tevin Reese, WR, 5-10, 163 Baylor...Like speed? Then you'll like Reese. He's not going to dazzle anyone with his solid hands or nifty routes, but what he can do is run, and run fast. Consider that of his 25 touchdown catches at Baylor, 22 of them went for at least 40 yards. A burner, something the Chargers lack. We'll see if wide receiver Tevin Reese is more than a one-trick pony as the Baylor product tries to make the team in training camp. But if nothing else, the seventh-round pick has the coolest nickname of the latest Chargers: "Sweet Feet." - The Sports Xchange

12/19/2013 - Baylor receiver Tevin Reese is getting the cast off his right wrist and expects to play in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 15 UCF. Reese dislocated his wrist when came down awkwardly in the first half against Oklahoma on Nov. 7. He missed the last four games for the Big 12 champion Bears. Reese says the cast will be removed Friday and that doctors will then give him a rehab plan. Even with the cast still on, Reese has been running routes and catching passes to prepare for the Jan. 1 game. In seven games before he got hurt, Reese had 33 catches for 824 yards and eight touchdowns. The senior was averaging 103 yards receiving per game and 25 yards a catch. - AP Sports

11/11/2013 - TOP 10 SCARIEST PLAYERS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL: 7. Tevin Reese, Baylor, WR: If you're the fastest of the fast Bears team, you're blazing fast and the 170-pound Reese is. The senior, who arrived in Waco weighing 148 pounds, has a 45-inch vertical and broad jumps 11-5. That explosiveness helps explain why he leads the country in receptions of 40 yards (eight). - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com

11/09/2013 - Baylor WR Tevin Reese dislocates wrist, out until bowl...Baylor's big win over Oklahoma has come at a substantial cost, as receiver Tevin Reese will miss at least the rest of the regular season with a wrist injury suffered against the Sooners. Art Briles said in his postgame comments that Reese had dislocated the wrist, per the Express-News, and would be out until at least the Bears' bowl game. The senior left Thursday night's Big 12 showdown without catching a pass and had his arm in a sling on the sidelines during the second half.

Though the presence of players like Antwan Goodley and Levi Norwood in the receiving corps means Reese's absence won't be a backbreaker -- as the Bears proved against the Sooners -- his departure is nonetheless a major blow. Reese's 33 catches and 824 yards both rank second among Bear receivers, only to Goodley, and Reese's eye-popping 24.97 yards-per-reception average leads the nation for receivers with more than 30 catches.

Reese's injury hurts even worse considering that the Sooners were just the first leg of a brutal stretch run for the Bears as they chase a shock BCS Championship berth. Baylor next plays Texas Tech in Arlington, followed by road trips to Oklahoma State and TCU, and then the season finale against Texas. Thursday's result suggests Briles' team still has the firepower to run the table -- but Reese's quality means their margin for error also just got substantially smaller. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com

10/16/2013 - WEEK 7 SENIOR BOWL SENIOR OF THE WEEK: It's probably only fitting that a guy named Reese win the Reese's Senior Bowl Senior of the Week Award.

09/05/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Senior WR Tevin Reese got his season off to a solid start with five catches good for 97 yards. His 44-yard third-quarter touchdown reception was the 17th TD catch of his career and 15th of at least 40 yards. - The Sports Xchange

08/28/2013 - BREAKOUT STAR: WR Tevin Reese - After playing in the shadows of Kendall Wright and Terrance Williams the last two years, Reese looks to take over the spotlight in 2013. He had 53 receptions for 957 yards as a junior last year and has 149 catches in his career. - The Sports Xchange

08/11/2013 - TOP BAYLOR PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 5. WR Tevin Reese (5-10, 172, 4.47)...In regards to the NFL Draft, Baylor might be best known in recent memory for producing RGIII, but the Bears program has also churned out several talented receivers, most recently Kendall Wright and Terrance Williams. And in 2013, Reese will hope to put his name in that same company as an early round NFL prospect. A high school teammate of Lache Seastrunk, Reese is one of the better deep threats in college football, using his build-up speed and route acceleration to create separation and stretch the field. He doesn't look like much with a lean build and limited growth potential, which hurts his ability to break tackles and do much after initial contact.

Reese is a mobile target and "movement" receiver, a player that Briles will often put in motion or use on various screens to get him the ball in space, but scouts will look for him to be more consistent in 2013, specifically with his hands and blocking ability. While doubtful that he'll be able to join Wright and Williams as a top-75 NFL draft pick, a productive senior season will go a long way to helping Reese next spring as he transitions to the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/19/2013 - 2013 BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Tevin Reese, Baylor, SR...Reese is one of 10 Big 12 Conference players on the watch list for the award that has been given annually to the nation's outstanding college football receiver since 1994. Former Bear Terrance Williams was one of three finalists for the award a season ago, and Kendall Wright was a semifinalist in 2011.

A Temple, Texas-product, Reese was also on the 2012 Biletnikoff Award preseason watch list. He totaled 53 receptions for 957 yards and nine touchdowns in 2012, helping him earn honorable mention All-Big 12 honors. Reese's nine TDs ranked fifth on Baylor's single-season list, and his 18.06 yards-per-reception was eighth-best in program history. He excelled in big plays downfield, as eight of nine touchdown catches went for 40 or more yards.

In 39 career games played over three seasons, Reese had tallied 149 receptions for 2,235 yards and 16 touchdowns. A two-time All-Big 12 honoree, he enters his senior season ranked eighth in program history in career receptions, fifth in career receiving yards and sixth in career receiving touchdowns. - Baylor football
