The move proved to be a success, as he rushed for a school single-season record of 22 touchdowns and carried the ball 281 times, racking up 1,583 yards, which ranked him third in the University of Montana's single-season history. He was a second team All-Big Sky selection and named honorable mention All-American by the Sports Network.[1]

In the 2009 season, Reynolds rushed for 1,501 yards, and again scored 22 rushing touchdowns, tying his record from last season. He was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award (FCS offensive MVP), finishing 12th out of the 23 players on the ballot. He was named a second team All-American by the Associated Press and The Sports Network, as well as named to the College Sporting News’ “Fab 50.” He was a first team All-Big Sky selection.[1]

Reynolds led the Big Sky his senior season with seven 100-yard rushing games, including a career-high 241 yards (the second most in single-game history) against Weber State. He set a school record with 321 rushing attempts. His 144 points last season broke the record of 138 that he had set the previous season. He also set a Grizzly record by scoring 24 total touchdowns, surpassing the mark of 23 he had set the year before. He was again a first team All-Big Sky selection.[1]
