“I really like the coaches and everything about the school. It was my dream school to play at, they offered me and I didn’t want to turn it down,” said Reynolds, a rising senior at BHS. “I’ve always wanted to play there.”

Reynolds, who verbally committed to VU earlier this week, was leaving Thursday for a Georgia tournament with his Tennessee Baseball Club travel team. Already this season he helped Team Tennessee win the Sunbelt tournament in Oklahoma this summer, hitting a grand slam against Texas and getting nominated all-tournament.

The Bruins switch-hitter attended quite a few games for the Commodores this past spring as they made yet another run into the NCAA Tournament, and likes the way Coach Tim Corbin’s teams play.

“They all play hard, and they play with heart,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds has been a starter on the Bruins baseball team since his freshman season, and made All-Region and All-District this season.

“For my high school I play shortstop, and on my summer team I play center field,” Reynolds said. “(Vanderbilt) told me I’d probably be playing outfield or at one of the corners.”

Reynolds hasn’t yet decided what he’ll study in college.

He’s been playing baseball since age 5 and played football as a freshman but decided to concentrate on baseball.

“We did pretty well, but we probably should have gone further than what we did,” he said about his junior season at Brentwood. “I think this next year we’ll be pretty solid because of pitching. We’ll have deep pitching.”
