On Wednesday evening, 2014 guard Miles Reynolds made his college decision, opting for Saint Louis over LSU and Columbia.
SLU had an in-home visit this week with Reynolds, as head coach Jim Crews stopped by to get acquainted with his family in Chicago on Sunday.
Playing time and familiarity with current SLU players aided in the decision as well.
"There was a huge factor in the fact that the guards at Saint Louis said they would love for me to come in and take their spot," he said. "I spoke to Davell Roby and I feel a good connection with the staff."
In addition to the in-home, Reynolds recently toured the Saint Louis campus and liked what he saw.
"My parents loved it down there, it's a perfect fit," he said. "Location didn't play a factor, but looking back on it, it's a blessing. My parents will be able to come to a lot of games."
As a 6-foot-4 combo guard, Reynolds figures to help SLU as a shooter as well as someone that can slash and get into the paint to give teammates opportunities.
He has played basketball on the highest level, as he plays high school ball at Whitney Young and on the AAU circuit with the Mac Irvin Fire in the Nike EYBL.
The Billikens now have five commits in the 2014 class and have received two in the last three days. Davell Roby, Austin Gillmann, Marcus Bartley, and Brett Jolly are the others. The Bills have one scholarship remaining for the 2014 class.
Is he recruiting anyone for the sixth and final spot?
"I'm definitely trying to get my AAU teammate Pat McCaw," he said. "He's a great player and an even better person. I'll be working on that."
