2012 Media Guide: Reid Fragel has played in all 39 games over the last three years, started in nine of them at tight end and wore jersey No. 88 … this year, Reid will wear jersey No. 77 and he will play at right tackle … he consulted with coaches and made the move before the start of spring ball, which gave him time to start gaining weight before spring drills, which he did … he went from 280 pounds to 298 and hopes to play just over 300 this season … although Reid was a fine tight end – he caught 14 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown in his career – he was always more comfortable blocking than running routes and at 6-8, he has the length, leverage and athleticism to develop into a fine blocker … his task going forward is to master the position well enough to keep ahead of some talented underclassmen … he’s done it so far, coming out of spring drills listed as the team’s starter at right tackle … he is the only
senior offensive lineman on the two-deep chart … he played on special teams during the Buckeyes’ 2009 Big Ten and Rose Bowl championship teams … in 2010 and 2011 he saw tight end duty in every
game … he caught a five-yard touchdown pass in the 20-17 win at Iowa in 2010.

2011 Media Guide: Towering tight end with good agility and strength … looking to share significant action with Jake Stoneburner again this season.

2010: Shared starting duties with Stoneburner … 9-yard reception in Ohio win … pair of catches gained 22 yards vs. Eastern Michigan … starter at Illinois with the injury to Stoneburner … 8-yard reception vs. the Illini … also started the Indiana game, making 2 catches for 21 yards … caught a two-point conversion from Pryor at Wisconsin … 14-yard reception at Minnesota … 5-yard TD catch at Iowa … 42-yard reception in the Sugar Bowl … second-year letterman.

2010 Media Guide: Towering tight end with good agility and strength … looking to earn some playing time behind veteran Jake Stoneburner.

2009: Earned a spot on several of the specialty units as a true freshman for the Rose Bowl and Big Ten champions … played in all 13 games … first-year letterwinner.

High School: Towering tight end with good agility and strength … team MVP for Coach Tim Brandon … 43 catches for 474 yards and 3 scores in 2008 … recorded 150 tackles and 15 sacks as a senior … O-D Bowl All-America … Detroit Free Press Dream Team … all-state and all-Macomb Area Conference … Super Prep Midwest Top 25 … basketball and track letterman as well.
