Erik Reynolds, a class of 2021 guard from Bullis, has been playing at a consistently high level this season. The Bulldogs are currently riding an 11-game win streak, and Reynolds has been an important player during that run. 

“Defense and ball movement have been the keys for our success,” Reynolds told Prep Hoops during a recent interview. “Once we get the ball moving, it becomes very tough to defend us.”

Reynolds has worked hard to improve his ball-handling and three-point shooting. Specifically handling the ball under pressure, and putting more arc on his jumper. One thing that Reynolds has always had is a high motor. He says Dwyane Wade is his favorite player, which explains why his motor doesn’t stop. 

“I like how he plays,” Reynolds said of Wade. “He will shoot it if u give him enough space, but he can go by you every time.”

The next steps for Reynolds’ development are to improve his patience, work on shooting off the dribble, and his ability to consistently create shots. He is also continuing to maintain the arc he’s developed on his jumper but is also focused on continuing to tighten his handle. 

“I’d say George Mason is recruiting me the hardest,” Reynolds stated. “Right now, it’s between them and St. Joe’s.”

What is he looking for in a school?

“I’m looking for a school that allows me to be somewhat free within their offense. Fits my playstyle, which is fast-paced. I want to go somewhere that gives me room to do what I do best, attack.”

What are his current goals?

“We are trying to get that IAC Championship this year. I think we have the team to do it. Individually, to keep working on the little things, including ball-handling.”
