Reggie Chaney, the 6-foot-7 power forward from Findlay (NV) Prep, told D1VISION on Friday that Arkansas, TCU, Texas A&M, VCU, Oklahoma State, and Wichita State are the schools working hardest for his recruitment. He broke down each school:

Arkansas: “I like the conference. The SEC is a good conference. The coaching staff is pretty good. They talk to me every day. I like how they say they’ll utilize me as a player.”

Texas A&M: “Again, the SEC. They’re also in Texas, which is where I live.”

VCU: “I like their style of play. They say that they can use me, getting up and down, and I like to get up and down. VCU is a good program for that.”

OSU: “I like the Big-12. I’m from Oklahoma originally, so growing up in Oklahoma, I keep them in mind. It’s a pretty good school.”

TCU: “They’ve been on me hard because they’re close. I’ve been up there. It’s nice. They love me and want me to come in and be an impact player. They want me to start and play right off the bat, being a scorer. I like how they say they’ll utilize me as a player.”

Wichita State: “They want me to come in and be the man right off the back and I like how they will use me as a player. The coaching staff talks to me every day.”

Chaney said that he is waiting to cut his list of schools because he’s still receiving more offers. “I’m still getting a little more offers because colleges are still talking to me, so I’ll probably cut it mid-season or something like that.”

In addition to the six schools working hardest, Chaney mentioned Texas, West Virginia, Iowa State, Missouri, UNLV, Notre Dame, California, Oregon State, and Colorado as schools that have been showing interest of late.

Although he is about to begin his senior year, Chaney is taking his time with his recruitment. “I’m probably gonna sit down and start planning some unofficials,” said Chaney. “As far as officials, I’m probably going to start doing that a little later because I’m probably going to be a late commit. A lot of schools just started rolling in for me.”

When it comes to making his decision, Chaney knows what he’s looking for. “The deciding factors are, of course, the coaching staff. I have to get along with them pretty well,” said Chaney. “Also, the players. I want to get along with the players. It’s not just that, it’s about how they utilize me, being an impactful player, whether I’ll get big minutes. I just want to come in and play, and be an impactful player. That’s pretty much it.

According to 247Sports, Chaney is ranked as the No. 191 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 3 player from the state of Texas. He currently holds 13 offers.

Playing with RM5 Elite on the Nike EYBL Circuit, Chaney averaged 11.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game, in 16 games played. In Peach Jam, Chaney averaged 11.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.4 blocks in five games played.
