Marrs wrestled at Clay Center Community High School, where he won the Kansas 4A state championship as a junior. During his college wrestling career, Marrs was a three-time Academic All-American and a three-time Wrestling All-American.
Athletic Director Jon Daniels said, “We’re excited about having Jacob join our athletic staff. We have heard tremendous things about him from other coaches across Kansas, and we are very fortunate to have him. I look forward to watching the success of the wrestling program and look forward to a day when they are competing for championships.”
