The Murrells Inlet, S.C. native is the daughter of Thomas and Michele Parr, and plans to pursue chemistry as her major.

When asked about Parr, Keagins said, "Reagan is a true midfielder that excels on both ends of the field. She's a confident driver, strong defender and a draw specialist that we can see making an immediate impact in transition."
