Austin Reutzel, a Region II Olympic Development Program soccer player and high school football place-kicker, has verbally committed to Drake's men's soccer program, according to his family.

Reutzel recently was named to the ODP Interregional all-tournament team for the 1994 age group following the NCAA Interregional in Birmingham earlier in December.

He attends Prairie (Cedar Rapids, Iowa), where he also kicks for the high school team.

Reutzel is the fourth confirmed commitment to Drake, joining Alexander Troester and Eric Williams of Iowa and Brandon Welter of Minnesota.
