As the July live period approaches for college coaches, spring AAU events have made a major impact on recruiting. With word of mouth traveling from events like the Nike EYBL, Bob Gibbons tournament and the upcoming Rumble in the Bronx, good play and potential is being noticed. College coaches cannot watch kids play until July, but that does not prevent them from showing extra interest by offering players and getting them on campus for visits. This week has been huge for that.
On Wednesday night, Katin Reinhardt picked up two new offers. The former USC commit added scholarships from Baylor and N.C. State. Reinhardt, a 2012 shooting guard from Mater Dei in California, also has offers from Arizona, Arizona State and the Trojans. Along with that, Big East schools Syracuse and UConn, among others, have begun expressing interest in the talented guard.
