Former U Alumni's Son Commits to Canes NFL's All Star Safety Son to Follow in Father's Footsteps - Miami, FL "Huge news today for Miami fans as FS Ed Reed Jr commits to the Miami Hurricanes. The son of NFL Pro Bowl Safety Ed Reed, who also played at Miami, decided to follow in his fathers footsteps and join the Canes. He brings the speed (A) and Agility (B+) to the Miami secondary along with solid tackling and hitting skills. He stands 6'5 as well and has the skill set to be just as good as his father if not better. He may also one day get the chance to play in the NFL with his father, a rare feat but possible since he was conceived by Ed Reed Sr at the young age of 13. It is reported that Ed Reed Jr will be wearing number 20 just like his father did at the U, as well as switching to the SS position." Sidenote: Due to an error at Rivals.com Reed Jr was listed under the name Randall Harper. This will be fixed once his records are sent over to the University in the spring.
