Tampa Bay Tech senior defensive lineman Kadesh Reaves, a captain on the Titans’ 8-4 playoff squad last fall, has made a verbal commitment to New Mexico Military Institute, Titans coach Jayson Roberts announced Tuesday.

The 5-foot-11, 288-pound Reaves was a two-year starter at TBT and last season recorded 54 tackles, 4.5 sacks and returned a fumble recovery 72 yards for a touchdown. He also scored a safety for the Titans.

NMMI is a two-year school in Roswell, N.M., and is the only state-supported military college located in the western United States. There’s typically about 1,000 students there and they are referred to as “Cadets,” 95 percent of whom go on to a four-year university.

The school’s football team competes in the Western States Football League against other two-year programs in Arizona, Utah and Idaho. Last season, NMMI went 9-3 and played in the Hot Bowl, where it lost to Navarro (Texas) College in Copperas Cove, Texas.
