HOLYOKE, Mass. -- Worcester Academy 2013 power forward Darryl Reynolds said he played with a chip on shoulder. In a win against Cheshire Academy on Thursday - as part of the BasketBull Hoops Fest - Reynolds finished 22 points and dominated the offensive glass for Worcester.
In his first year, following a career at Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia, Reynolds has interest from mid majors and much of the Atlantic 10, but has yet to land an offer from one of the major conferences.
Boston College (who was in attendance), Providence, and Arizona State have all shown interest at some point, according to Reynolds. He currently holds offers from St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, Fairfield, along with several oher A10 and mid majors.
"I'm new to the scene," said the 6-foot-8 forward. "I'm not worried about the whole college thing. I'm not going to make my decision until April."
"There's a lot of schools floating around. None of that matters, I just need to keep playing my game."
On Thursday, in a game that was low on energy - given that players were on the verge of a break after a semester of classes - Reynolds was active on both ends of the floor. He has great size and still remains pretty mobile. Worcester had a noticable size advantage and Reynolds was a consistent presence in the paint, using his size and footwork to get in good positions for offensive rebounds. His production on the glass led to numerous offensive rebounds and second-chance points for Worcester
Matt Cimino, Reynolds' teammate and a 2014 recruit, already has some high major offers, including Boston College and Kansas State. Stanford, Providence, and Notre Dame are also starting to express interest in the 6-foot-10 big man. However, Cimino isn't expected to make any major announcements until the AAU season.
"Going into to the spring and towards the end of summer I'll definitely have some favorites," said Cimino.
