Reynolds, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound offensive lineman, announced on Twitter Monday morning that he will join the Iowa team this season as part of the incoming recruiting class instead of being a gray-shirt recruit. The initial plan was for Reynolds to wait to enroll at Iowa until the start of the second semester in January, at which time he would have been put on scholarship.

“Just got off the phone with coach Ferentz and I am officially no longer a Grey Shirt and will be going up for this season,” Reynolds said on Twitter.

With the addition of Reynolds, Iowa has 20 players in its incoming recruiting class, including three offensive linemen, all of whom are from Iowa. The other two offensive linemen in the class are Lucas LeGrand from Dubuque Senior and Keegan Render from Indianola.

Reynolds was a three-year starter at Waukee where he earned all-state honors. He is ranked as a two-star recruit by both Scout.com and Rivals.com.

Iowa has three in-state offensive line commitments in the Class of 2015, as well. The 2015 class includes Landan and Levi Paulsen of Moville (Woodbury Central High School) and Jacob Newborg of Inwood (West Lyon High School). Those three are among the top five in-state recruits in the Class of 2015, according to Rivals.com.
