For Lower Merion in 2011-12, Reynolds averaged 11 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 4.2 blocks while earning Inquirer fourth-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors. The Aces advanced to the state final before losing to District 1 rival Chester.

At Villanova, Reynolds will join 6-11 freshman Daniel Ochefu, a Westtown School graduate, on the front line.
