The Boo Williams Summer League won their own event last weekend in large part because of the play of Scotty Reynolds. The 6-foot, 170-pound guard from Herndon (Va.) High School was the driving force to his team's championship run. The class of 2006 updated us on his intense recruiting and what schools he is currently looking at in the process.
After the summer of 2004, Reynolds was a name that graced the top prospects list for the class of 2006. He showed that he could score with the best of them on the perimeter with his sniper like shooting.
He extended his game from beyond the three-point line. The No. 122 ranked player in the class of 2006 played more like a guy on a mission to prove the doubters wrong. If you talk to him, he still didn't think he played as good as he can play.
"I'm not at 100 percent right now," Reynolds said. "Rehab is going good."
Uh, ya think?
From start to finish, Reynolds was the best player on a roster that boasted a dozen guys that will all go on to play in the best basketball conferences in the country. Reynolds created off the dribble, one glaring weakness last year, and he pushed the ball up the court and finished around the basket on a throng of defenders.
Tywon Lawson, arguably the best overall guard at the Boo Williams, was held to 10 points against Reynolds. More importantly, he was held to just one field goal.
That ability has caught the attention of Oklahoma head coach Kelvin Sampson and NC State leader Herb Sendek. Both programs came out to see Reynolds last week. So did Connecticut. The three round out his favorite list.
Many believe the Sooners are sitting in the driver's seat but he downplayed that over the weekend.
"I don't have a leader right now. I really don't," Reynolds said. "Anything can happen."
Another assumption is that he's ready to wind it down and make a decision. While he didn't say yes or no, Reynolds said the decision is something weighing on his thoughts.
"I don't have a timetable really. I'm thinking about though," Reynolds said. "I guess you could say I'm just waiting on that gut feeling everyone talks about."
Now we wait. It's going to be interesting.
