Former Ravens and University of Miami safety Ed Reed is eligible for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year. But he learned Monday that he has already gained inclusion in the College Football Hall of Fame in December.

Reed, a two-time first-team All-American in his college career at Miami from 1998 to 2001, was one of 10 players and three coaches to be announced as part of the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame class. The announcement was made Monday by the National Football Federation and the College Hall of Fame.

The 2018 class will be enshrined at the 61st annual NFF Awards Dinner on Dec. 4 at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel.

Reed will join a class that includes quarterbacks Kerry Collins (Penn State) and Dave Dickenson (Montana), running backs Paul Palmer (Temple) and Trevor Cobb (Rice), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (Georgia Tech), offensive linemen Matt Stinchcomb (Georgia) and Aaron Taylor (Nebraska), linebacker Dana Howard (Illinois), defensive back Charles Woodson (Michigan), and coaches Frank Beamer (Virginia Tech, Murray State), Mack Brown (Texas, North Carolina, Tulane, Appalachian State) and Mel Tjeerdsma (Northwest Missouri State, Austin College).

“We are extremely proud to announce the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame Class,” said NFF chairman Archie Manning. “Each of these men has established himself among the absolute best to have ever played or coached the game, and we look forward to immortalizing their incredible accomplishments.”

Reed is the seventh player in Miami history to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. His 21 career interceptions and 389 interception return yards still stand as Miami and Big East records.

Reed played 11 of his 12 seasons with the Ravens. He was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor on Nov. 22, 2015.
