Reid Nickerson is a 6’4″, 220 lb. defensive end from Friendswood High School in Friendswood, Texas. Nickerson actually played safety in high school and may very well be the only defensive end recruit in Division 1 football that played in the defensive backfield at the high school level. He should be able to pack solid weight on his long and lean frame to compete against the bigger offensive tackles in the Ivy League. With Nickerson’s speed and athleticism, Yale coaches could turn him into a pass rushing machine. His coverage skills and open field tackling ability could also transition well to the outside linebacker spot.
