Baylor Men’s Golf Signs Grider and Reppe

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor’s men’s golf has signed two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent, head coach Mike McGraw announced Thursday. Both players are from Texas and will join the program for the 2017-18 season.

Baylor signed Ryan Grider out of iSchool High STEM Academy in Lewisville, Texas, and Mark Reppe out of Episcopal School of Dallas. Both are ranked in the top 100 in the class of 2017 in the latest Golfweek rankings.

“I am excited about Ryan and Mark joining the program,” McGraw said. “Both have been competitive on a state and national level. More importantly, they are great kids, who will represent Baylor in a very positive way. They believe in what we are building here.”

Grider is ranked No. 37 nationally and No. 5 in Texas among 2017 recruits. He has won five tournaments in the last two seasons, including the 2015 Legends Collegiate Preview (66-68), the 2015 AJGA Bishops Gate (66-78-67), the 2015 Byron Nelson Junior Championship (67-71-74), the 2016 AJGA Toyota Music City Junior (72-69) and the 2016 Texas Cup Invitational (67-66).

Grider has recorded 10 top-five finishes in 14 events played during the 2015-16 seasons. He was named a 2015 Rolex AJGA Second-Team All-American and was honored with the 2016 Byron Nelson International Junior Golf Award.

Reppe is ranked No. 83 nationally and No. 10 in Texas in the class of 2017. He has nine top-15 finishes in AJGA competition, including tournament titles at the 2014 Taylormade Adidas Junior All-State at Watters Creek (76-73-68) and the 2015 North Texas Classic (71-68). He finished in third place at both the 2015 AJGA David Toms Junior (74-74-70) and the 2016 Trusted Choice Big I National Championship (71-67-67-74).

Reppe is a three-time Southwest Preparatory All-Conference Team honoree and has twice finished among the top-three individuals at the SPC Championship.

Both players will enroll in fall 2017 and will have four years of eligibility starting in 2017-18. Baylor’s 2016-17 squad has completed its fall season and is currently No. 10 nationally in the latest Golfweek rankings. The Bears return to action Feb. 17 at the All-American at Golf Club of Houston.
