With six schools still in the picture for unsigned senior Scottie Reynolds of Herndon (Va.) High School, Reynolds will visit a Big East school this weekend.
"I went to LSU and that visit went well," said Reynolds, a 6-foot, 170-pound combo guard, who was just recently granted a release from his letter-of-intent with Oklahoma. "I was going to go to Illinois this weekend, but that visit fell through. Next week, I'm going to Villanova on either Thursday or Friday."
Reynolds is also considering Michigan, Oklahoma and Wake Forest. After his Villanova visit, he will have visited all six of these schools at one time except for Illinois and Wake Forest.
"I haven't set up any other visits," he said. "I'm just taking it one week at a time. I don't know if I'll make it up to Illinois. But I used to live in Illinois, and I know what Illinois is all about. I have a good idea about how I would fit in there."
A player known for his winning ways, Reynolds is studying how dedicated his future teammates are to winning and how he feels about the head coach.
"I'm looking for guys that are dedicated and willing to give up anything and everything for the team, both on and off the court," he said. "You can tell what kind of chemistry a team has right off the bat. Are guys about themselves or are they in it for the team? Winning is all I want.
"For me personally, I want to make sure I can have a good relationship with the coach. With these different situations, I'm not going to know for sure in a month what it is going to be like. But I will be able to form an idea of how it will be in the future."
Scottie Reynolds scouting report:
A clutch shooter, Reynolds has all the intangibles that make him a winner. With average athleticism, Reynolds makes plays with his craftiness, high skill level and strength with the ball. He will have to work hard to successfully defend on the high-major level.
