Katin Reinhardt, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who has been compared to Jimmer Fredette, plans to cut his list soon.
“I’m going to cut my list to five in a week or so,” Reinhardt, a rising senior from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei ranked No. 8 among shooting guards by Rivals, said by text.
After initially committing to USC on New Year’s Eve, Reinhardt changed his mind and decommitted in May.
He said the schools currently recruiting him the hardest are Texas, St. John’s, Baylor, Syracuse, Washington State, Arizona State. West Virginia, N.C. State and UNLV.
“I’m trying to take a few unofficials this August,” he said. “I don’t know when yet.”
St. John’s offered right after the Las Vegas Fab 48 event, and head coach Steve Lavin watched Reinhardt last week at the Pumps event.
“They offered and their system is great,” Reinhardt said of St. John’s.
