Arizona Wildcats special teams ace Thomas Reid III has been put on scholarship, he announced Wednesday on Twitter.

The redshirt junior was named Pac-12 honorable mention as a special teams player last season, shining as a gunner on kickoff and punt coverage. He also had one catch for six yards.

Born into a military family, it has been a long journey to Arizona for Reid, who has lived in Hawaii, Virginia, and Kansas. He was set to be a scholarship player at Hawaii coming out of high school before a coaching change and an injury scuttled those plans.

Here’s a feature on Reid from last season.
