Anthony Lawrence to UCF, Miles Reynolds to St. Louis

Special to ZAGSBLOG
Anthony Lawrence and Miles Reynolds committed on Wednesday.
Lawrence, a 6-foot-6, 185 pound junior out of Lakewood St. Petersburg Senior High School committed to Donnie Jones and the Central Florida Knights. Lawrence’s father played at the University of Miami (Fla.). Lawrence plays his summer AAU basketball with Each 1 Teach 1 Elite, is a player with a high IQ, and can score the ball very effectively in a variety of ways. He chose UCF over Miami, Clemson, Texas A&M and Louisiana Tech. He joins Alex Owens and Chad Brown as the 3rd player to commit to UCF in the class of 2015.
Reynolds, a 6-foot-2, 185 pound senior out of Whitney Young High School (Ill.), became the second player in the past two days to commit to the St. Louis Billikens, joining Brett Jolly, who committed Tuesday, as the 5th recruit to chose St. Louis. Davell Roby, Marcus Bartley and Austin Gillman are the other 3 recruits. Reynolds, an attacking guard who likes to defend both guard positions will fit into the Billiken’s system with relative ease.
