PITTSBURGH — The University of Pittsburgh football team announced in a news release on Friday that it dismissed tight end Charles Reeves, a Steubenville High School graduate, for “disciplinary reasons.”

The 6-5, 280-pounder was a four-star prospect and the No. 1 tight end prospect by Scout and 247 Sports. He was redshirted as a freshman last year.

Reeves was selected first-team Associated Press Division IV All-Ohio as a senior and junior as well as the Ohio East District Offensive Player of the Year in 2016. He compiled 47 receptions for 750 yards and eight touchdowns in his final season. He also compiled an interception return for a touchdown on defense.

Reeves helped Big Red to a 13-2 mark in 2016, 45-12 overall, four regional championships and two state title game appearances. Away from the gridiron, Reeves is a 1,200-point scorer in basketball.
