Virginia Guard Can Score With the Best of Them
Reynolds, a 6-0, 181 pound scoring lead guard from Herndon H.S. in Herndon, Va., has been pouring in points at an alarming rate this summer.
It all started two weeks ago at the Reebok ABCD Camp in New Jersey, where Reynolds led all underclassmen in scoring at 14.3 points per game. As a result, he was tabbed to the underclassman all-star game at ABCD.
That momentum continued for Reynolds down at the Nike Peach Jam Invitational in South Carolina, where he averaged 14 points per game on a loaded Boo Williams team.
So that begs the question: at his size and the way he plays, just how high will Reynolds get recruited? He still has two more years to figure it all out, since Reynolds will be just a junior this fall at Herndon.
"I am a scoring guard who will make the extra pass for someone else to score," Reynolds explained from the Peach Jam. "For me it's all about the team game."
A bit of a nomad, Reynolds was born in Alabama, then grew up in both Virginia and Illinois before moving back to Virginia for high school. As a result, his early recruitment reflects a good mix of Southeastern and Midwestern programs.
Reynolds said that he's seen interest from Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, Maryland, Miami, N.C. State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and George Mason.
With 10 more days to play down in Florida at the AAU Super Showcase and AAU Nationals, Reynolds is likely to draw interest from some more programs this summer.
"If something that I really like comes up, I will sit down with my family and weigh my options," he said.
A player moves exceptionally well without the basketball, Reynolds is a versatile scorer who will likely play some point guard at the major college level. One coach in attendance at the Peach Jam compared him favorably to former Virginia guard Curtis Staples.
As a sophomore at Herndon, Reynolds averaged 22 points, four rebounds, five assist and three steals per game.
