VILLANOVA, Pa. - Lower Merion (Pa.) High School graduate Darryl Reynolds has signed a national letter of intent to attend Villanova, it was announced today. Reynolds, 6-8, is a former Lower Merion High School standout who currently attends Worcester (Mass.) Academy and will enroll at Villanova this fall.
"We are excited to welcome Darryl to the Villanova family," stated Wildcats head coach Jay Wright. "Darryl was well-schooled at Lower Merion by his coach Gregg Downer and he has used his post-graduate year to continue to develop under the tutelage of Jamie Sullivan. He brings athleticism, rebounding and a commitment to becoming the best player he can be to Villanova. We believe Darryl's best basketball is ahead of him."
Reynolds helped bring Lower Merion to the 2012 PIAA Class AAAA championship final as a senior, averaging 11 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.2 blocked shots per contest. He was named All-State and All-Southeastern Pa. in addition to being named first team All-Central League.
At Worcester, Reynolds helped lead his team to a 21-6 record in 2012-13.
The Wildcats' incoming class of freshmen for 2013 now includes three players. Josh Hart, 6-5, of Sidwell Friends School and Kris Jenkins, 6-6, of Gonzaga High School both inked national letters of intent to attend Villanova last November.
