Reynoso-Avila gaining interest
One of the West Coast’s most under-recruited prospects in 2016 is La Mirada (Calif.) wing Vittorio Reynoso-Avila. The rising senior is extremely long and a versatile defender that could be able to guard the one through three at the next level. He has a very high basketball IQ and is a terrific passer. He’s a much-improved shooter and can now knock down jumpers out to three. “I think I’m a jack of all trades,” Reynoso-Avila said. “I can bring the ball up, I can shoot, I can go to the basket and I can rebound.” If Reynoso-Avila were to improve his handle he would be able to play more on the ball at the next level, which would make his stock soar, and it’s something he’s working on. “I’d like to become a point guard but I need to become more comfortable bringing the ball up the court with pressure,” he said. “I’m getting better at it.” Harvard, Yale, Santa Barbara, UC Irvine and Eastern Washington are all recruiting Reynoso-Avila, who has an idea of what he’s looking for in a school. “I’d like academics and a good basketball program; somewhere I can thrive, get better and develop as a player,” Reynoso-Avila said. “I want to go to a school where I can be successful outside of basketball.” Reynoso-Avila will decide whenever the time is right. “Whenever the right school offers, I’m not afraid to commit early,” he said.
