Reynolds Back From NC State

Scott Reynolds has taken a mini-tour of sorts and one of his stops was in Raleigh.

The Herndon High (Va.) 5-11 junior combo guard visited Michigan for Midnight Madness, headed to Oklahoma a couple weeks later and then took a trip to N.C. State last weekend.

``It was a little quicker than the other two (visits)," Reynolds said of his experience this past weekend. "I went down there Friday night and woke up and they had a Red-White scrimmage. I went to that and saw the facilities and toured the campus. After that we just sat down and talked. It was a little quicker, but it was beneficial."

Despite the experience checking out some of the campuses earlier than most of his peers in the junior class, Reynolds is still not on the verge of making a decision.

"Once Monday comes, I'm focusing on the team and what we have to get done," Reynolds said. "Something might change, but that's the plan. I won't take any unofficials or anything like that."

Reynolds, who played for Boo Williams this past summer, is a big-time shooter – but due to his size, he'll play the point guard spot at the next level.

"These three schools are recruiting me as a point, and that's what I want," Reynolds said. "I'm not like a typical get it across halfcourt, set everything up. They want a scoring point guard and a guard that can bring it up, handle and shoot the three and create for himself and others. They aren't close to home but they understand what I can do and best fits their system."

One of the primary factors for Reynolds in making his decision will be how much they prioritize him. Another will be who else is in the program at his position and what other players from his class will be coming in with Reynolds.

``I want to go somewhere where I'm their No. 1 option," Reynolds added. "It might change but I want to be their No. 1 guy. It could change, depending on the situation. There are other schools where I could go that I could do that but I'm not sure I want to do that. I could also go somewhere where I could play two guard, but I don't want to do that."

In addition to the three schools he visited unofficially in the last month, Reynolds said he's also hearing from Illinois, Florida and UConn. For now, no one has emerged.

``I guess right now it's Michigan, Oklahoma and N.C. State," he said. "There's a couple of others, but those are the ones up there for me right now."

However, none of that trio has moved to the forefront as of yet.

"I can't really say," he said. "I don't think it would be fair for anybody else. I haven't sat down with all of my family. All of the schools have something really good to offer."
