Reynolds was third among Stanford defenders in 2013 with 87 tackles, adding four breakups, five passes defended and one interception. He was a pivotal cog in a defensive unit that ranked third nationally in rushing defense (89.4 yards/game), seventh in tackles for loss (7.8/game) and 16th in total defense (343.1 yards/game). Reynolds shelved in the accolades during his final season on The Farm, garnering All-America honors from the FWAA (second team), CBSSports.com (first team) and SI.com (honorable mention). The Pac-12 recognized Reynolds as a first team all-conference safety. The Lott IMPACT Award semifinalist also earned a spot on the Pac-12 All-Academic second team.
