Reese graduated in May 2015 as a kinesiology major and three time All-American from the University of Tennessee. While representing the Volunteers, Reese paired with Libietis to win three major collegiate doubles championships, conquering the 2014 NCAA Doubles Championship as well as the 2013 and 2014 ITA All-American Doubles Championships. On May 26, 2014, Reese and Libietis, nicknamed "Rock and Hammer", won the 2014 NCAA Doubles Championship after defeating Kobelt and Kevin Metka of Ohio State University 7-6(5), 6-7(3), 7-6(6) in a final that, notably, did not contain any breaks of serve. The tandem achieved the #1 ITA collegiate doubles ranking several times during their career, including finishing the season as the top ranked pair in 2014. Although noted for doubles success, Reese also competed in singles for the Volunteers, garnering 90 career wins and peaking at #16 in the ITA collegiate singles rankings while manning either the first or second position in the lineup (following a brief debut at the third position) for the entirety of his time on Rocky Top. A four-time ITA scholar athlete, three-time All-SEC selection, and two-time University of Tennessee Male Athlete of the Year as well as "Mr. Tennessee", Reese was named Team of the Year with Libietis for the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame's 2014 induction class.

On November 8, 2014, Reese hit a sliding backhand around the net post during the Knoxville Challenger that was featured on ESPN's Top Ten Plays and received over 100,000 hits on YouTube.
