Newberry College head men’s basketball coach Dave Davis has announced that Chris Reynolds will join the Wolves’ roster for the 2010-11 senior. Reynolds, a 6-foot-5, 190 lbs. small forward, is a native of Augusta, Ga., and joins Newberry after two seasons at Campbell University.
Reynolds attended Glenn Hills High School in Augusta, where he was named an All-State selection by the Georgia Sportswriters Association as a senior. In his senior season, Reynolds helped lead the Spartans to a 29-2 record and a state title with 15.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
Reynolds was rated as a three-star reruit out of high school by Rivals.com and one of the top small forwards in the state of Georgia. He shared team MVP honors in three seasons and was named all-area and all-region in each of his final three seasons at Glenn Hills. He was rated the No. 1 small forward coming into the Atlantic Sun Conference and named that league’s top small forward by Rivals.
At Campbell, he earned the team’s Coaches Award after shooting 47.6% from the floor as a freshman in 2008-09. He played in 28 games as a freshman, scoring 13 points in a conference game against Stetson on February 27, 2009, and pulling down seven rebounds against VMI on December 9, 2008. In his sophomore season, Reynolds appeared in 25 games and earned a career best 10 rebounds against Southern Virginia on December 7, 2009.
“Chris is the prototypical Newberry basketball player,” Davis said. “He’s long, athletic, tough and has a tremendous work ethic. He is the kind of player we must have at Newberry to be successful.”
