HOOPS RECRUITING: Sooners lands another top junior

Sampson steals one of the nation's top junior shooters out of ACC country.

The Oklahoma Basketball team continued to build on their outstanding junior class when Herndon, Va. guard Scott Reynolds committed on Tuesday, according to James Hale.

Reynolds, a 6-foot, 185 pound combo guard who is ranked as the No. 42 junior in the nation by Scout.com, chose the Sooners over Michigan, North Carolina State, Wake Forest and Maryland.

Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Dave Telep, who has also confirmed Reynolds' commitment to Oklahoma through various sources, talked about OU's newest commitment late Tuesday night.

"In my opinion, Scott Reynolds is one of the best shooters in the country in the Class of 2006," Telep said. "We're talking about a highly ranked, highly skilled guard with a deft touch from the perimeter. This guy is a proven winner who is the kind of kid that wants the ball with the game on the line.

"Oklahoma marched into ACC territory and landed a player that was highly coveted by that league. More importantly, they landed a young man who from Day One comes in and helps them offensively.

Reynolds joins junior Damion James as the Sooners second junior commitment this week. James is rated as 17th-best junior in nation by Scout.com.
