Herndon (Va.) High School (13-6) combo guard Scotty Reynolds is scorching the nets this year, averaging 33 points per game along with 6 assists. The No. 122 ranked player in the class of 2006 is also one of the best shooters in his class and is making strides as a point guard. At 6-foot, 170-pounds, Reynolds will have to be a playmaker as well as a scorer on the next level. Three high-majors certainly think he has this capability.
"I've received offers from Oklahoma, North Carolina State and Michigan," said Reynolds. "My favorites are those three and Maryland, Connecticut, Wake Forest and Arizona. But I do not have a leader. At this point, I am wide open."
Reynolds, who has already taken unofficial visits to the three schools that have offered him, is looking for a comfortable fit both on and off the court at his future college.
"First and foremost, I want to go somewhere that feels like home and a place where I fit into their system," he said.
Playing shooting guard for the Boo Williams AAU club last summer, Reynolds was one of the best pure shooters on the circuit. Not as adept at handling the ball and defending the ball, Reynolds is working hard to improve in those areas as he now runs the point for his high school team.
"Off the court I'm working hard on my strength and conditioning," he said. "On the court I need to keep working on my ball handling and midrange jumper."
With a 3.0 GPA, Reynolds would like to set up some official visits after the season, but he has not yet taken either the ACT or the SAT.
