"I saw a lot of guys committing to ODU and I wanted to go ahead and commit, so I could just focus on my season," said the 6-foot, 180-pound Reynolds.
"I'm still going to work as hard as I can, but it takes a lot of pressure off me and now I can just play football and not have anything to worry about anything."
The Patriot playmaker said Old Dominion was the right place for him.
"They're and up-and-coming school, and I wanted to be a part of a new program. Also, they're offense is perfect for receivers."
The ODU coaching staff played a significant role in his decision.
"They played a big role in my decision," he said. "They made me feel like I was at home and they're good coaches."
Reynolds does not plan to visit any more schools and said he is 100 percent committed to ODU. Now, he is focused on having a successful senior season.
"I want us to go to the playoffs – that would be good because we are a new program," Reynolds said. "We've only had varsity for two years. Individually, I want to have between 70 and 80 catches and 10 touchdowns.
Last season, Reynolds finished with 40 catches for 685 yards and seven touchdowns.
