A New Jersey native is receiving some serious division one recruiting interest after playing on the JUCO level this season ...

Even though the College of Southern Idaho went 1-2 at the NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson, Kan., last month, the Golden Eagles got tremendous play from 6-5 1/2 sophomore power forward
Reggie Larry.

Larry averaged 21 points and 11.7 rebounds at Hutch, shooting a robust 58 percent from the field.

A native of Newark, N.J., Larry stands about 6-5 1/2 inches tall and weighs about 220 pounds. Even though he might be more built like a small forward, Larry's game is all about power, rebounding and finishing around the rim.

Larry averaged 14.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game during his sophomore campaign for the Golden Eagles, shooting 50 percent from the field and 55 percent from the foul line.

"It's all I've been playing all of my life," Larry said when asked about his tendency to gravitate toward the low post. "When I was a freshman in high school, I was a two guard, but then I had this growth spurt and they threw me down in the post as a sophomore."

A number of solid mid-major type programs are eyeballing Larry this winter, according to CSI Head Coach Barret Peery.

Larry will take his first official visit this weekend to Marshall (Apr. 7-9). He'll follow that up with trips to Houston (Apr. 14-16), Boise State (Apr. 21-23), Butler (Apr. 28-30) and Saint Louis University (May 5-7).

Peery thinks that Larry's game will translate well with the schools who are involved with him this spring.

"I think it's all about where he goes, because he's definitely an around the basket, post up type guy," the coach said. "He's been very successful for us, and when his effort is good, he can be a force
