Meet Langston Reynolds, 2022 combo guard from Colorado Prep (CO) and the Utah Prospects (UT). Despite a productive showing on The Grind Session during his junior high school season, Reynolds still seemed to be flying under the radar heading into the July recruiting period. He’s since boosted his stock after a string of strong performances on the 3SSB circuit and now has a handful of offers to his name.
The 6’4 Reynolds is a bulldog defensively and is a 3+ position defender at the prep level. Even as he transitions to college, his defensive mentality and versatility project as differentiating factors for him. On the offensive end, Reynolds leverages his functional athleticism really well as evidenced by his quick first step, consistent ability to get into the lane, and the left and right-hand posters he’s punched in as an above-the-rim finisher.
Recently, the lefty spent some time chopping it up with Pro Insight’s Jake Lieberman about his recruitment, his experience on the 3SSB circuit, and more.
For the next installment of “Recruiting Roundup,” we present class of 2022 prospect Langston Reynolds, from Denver, Colorado:
Pro Insight: What's the current breakdown of your visits, offers, and interest?
Langston Reynolds: I have five offers right now and I’m going to be taking three visits: to Montana, Northern Arizona and Towson. I have double-digit schools interested in me as well…UTEP, Utah and Mizzou to name a few.
PI: Which programs have you heard from the most lately?
LR: I hear from UTEP, Montana, Northern Arizona, Towson, Mizzou, and Hawaii almost every day.
PI: How was your time on the 3SSB circuit with the Utah Prospects?
LR: My time with Utah Prospects on the circuit was amazing. I loved every bit of it. It was a family on and off the court. I have lots of love for those guys.
PI: What kind of role do you see yourself filling at the next level?
LR: I see myself playing a big role in college and coming in playing right away. I see myself making game-winning plays on both sides of the ball.
PI: What has been the most unique recruiting pitch thus far?
LR: The recruiting pitches I’ve received that have stood out the most to me are the schools who want me to come in and play right away…make an impact as a freshman to help them win games.
PI: What's the funniest thing that's happened in a virtual visit on Zoom?
LR: The funniest thing I would say is when a coach was giving a big speech and I couldn’t hear any of it till the end.
PI: Did you have any dream schools growing up?
LR: Yes — growing up my dream school was San Diego State. But I will pick the school that fits me best.
PI: If you could team up with any high school player in the country when you guys get to college, who would you pick?
LR: I would definitely pick my teammate Zach Keller. No question.
PI: What are your three main priorities when narrowing down and eventually making a final decision with your recruitment?
LR: I would say the top three things are my relationship with the whole coaching staff, not just one or two coaches. Also, if the school fits my playing style. The last thing: I pay attention to how much a program looks at me as a player and person and what they realize and don’t realize. It’s very important to me.
PI: How's your timeline looking?
LR: I would like to commit later around December or January.
PI: If you could sum up your recruitment process up to this point in three or four words, what would they be?
LR: Going to blow up.
