Coach Bryson Barker on Reid: “Marcus has been a great leader for our program. The moment he walked through our doors, he has been on a mission, in the classroom and on the mat, to be the best he can possibly be. We are glad for the support that he and his family have shown our program in such a short year and a half. We are excited to continue watching Marcus grow into a more superior wrestler in college and a successful young man in life.”
