SALT LAKE CITY – Former Timpview star and Stanford standout linebacker Gabe Reid announced that he will transfer to the Utah football program.

Gabe Reid spent five seasons with Stanford before entering the portal as a graduate transfer that led him to join Utah football. His younger brother Karene finished his freshman season with the Utes.

Gabe announced his decision on Wednesday afternoon.

“I want to formally thank each of the coaches who have recruited me during these past few months,” Reid posted. “It has truly meant so much. Thank you Stanford for countless amazing experiences over the years on The Farm. I want to express my gratitude to all my loved ones for supporting me along the way. And finally I’m thankful for a Heavenly Father watching over and guiding me along my path. With that being said I’d like to announce that I’m committing to the University of Utah. Can’t wait to spend my last year playing college football back home alongside my brother Karene!!”

Reid joined Stanford in 2017 after serving a two-year church mission in American Samoa. He didn’t see any action as a true freshman in 2017. During his sophomore season in 2018, Reid played in all 13 games with four starts, finishing with 5.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss and 35 tackles.

As a junior in 2019, Reid played 12 games, including starts in the final seven contests, recording 43 tackles, nine tackles for loss and two sacks. In 2020, he played in all five games, putting up 27 tackles, four tackles for loss, two sacks and a forced fumble. In his final season on The Farm in 2021, Reid started in 11 of the 12 games he played, posting 62 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 0.5 sacks, eight quarterback hurries, one interception and three pass breakups.
