Are the Wolverines Still Alive With Reynolds?

Scottie Reynolds comments on his visit to Villanova, his decision timetable, his top five, and more. Are the Wolverines still on his list?

Last year, Herndon Virginia PG Scottie Reynolds believed he had made the perfect choice to spend his college years when he committed to Kelvin Sampson and the Oklahoma Sooners. Now over a year later, and just a month after receiving his release from his letter of intent, Reynolds finds himself looking for that perfect choice for a second time. The process up to this point hasn't been very easy. The sweet-shooting guard has gone back out on the trail to visit colleges and has spoken to a number of others. He knows what he wants, but just hasn't been able to decide who is best suited to give it to him.

"Every Situation could be good," said Reynolds. "I am going to continue to evaluate, keep talking to coaches and players, and just take it all in." “I want to go to a place where I can be successful on and off the court so that I will have enough tools around me to do other things”.

Another of Reynolds finalists received a visit this past weekend. The McDonald's All-American made his way to Villanova University and reports that he was pleased with what he saw.

“The Villanova visit was cool," he said. "I had a chance to talk with Coach Jay Wright. Things went pretty well this weekend."

Despite recent reports, Reynolds indicated that The Michigan Wolverines are still on his list with Villanova, Illinois, LSU, and Oklahoma.

"Michigan is still right up there with the rest of them," insisted Reynolds. “Coach Amaker came out to see me on the last day coaches could come to my house to visit. We sat down and just chilled out. We talked and watched the Detroit Pistons play. Coach is someone I really look up to like a big brother. He has been recruiting me since my freshmen year. He has always been real with me very straight about things”.

A number of Amaker's players have joined him in the recruiting effort as well.

“I have had a chance to talk to guys like Brent Petway, Daniel Horton… pretty much all of the guys," said Reynolds. "They all tell me that they want me at Michigan”.

The questions now are will Reynolds take any more visits and when will he decide. At this point in time the answers to those queries are a bit up in the air.

"I don’t know about any other visits as of right now," said Reynolds. "I plan on making a decision in the next two weeks. Maybe I will decide in two weeks…then again who knows”.
