Scottie Reynolds (born October 10, 1987) is an American college basketball player. The Huntsville, Alabama native currently plays for Villanova University in the Big East Conference of the NCAA. He originally intended to play for the University of Oklahoma Sooners, but was released of his letter of intent by the administration after the Sooners' coach, Kelvin Sampson, accepted the head coaching job at Indiana University. Reynolds played for the U.S. team in the 2007 Pan Am Games. Reynolds is considered a late second-round NBA draft prospect.

Reynolds was born in Huntsville, Alabama to an unwed, unemployed teenaged mother who reluctantly gave him up for adoption. Reynolds grew up in a loving family with his adoptive parents Ric and Pam Reynolds and siblings Eric, Kelli, Susie, Ross, and Dahlia. He has lived in Athens, Alabama; Herndon, Virginia; and Chicago, Illinois.

A four-year starter for his high school team, the Herndon Hornets of Herndon, Virginia, Reynolds is one of the most prolific scorers in Virginia basketball history, and the best player in the competitive Northern Region since Grant Hill (South Lakes High School, class of 1990). He led the Herndon Hornets to the state finals in the 2005–06 season, and the team became state runner-ups. A three-time Player of the Year for the region, Reynolds is known for his three-point shooting and clutch performances. During his senior year, Reynolds led his team to the state finals and was named a McDonald's All-American, the first player in the Northern Region to be so honored since Joey Beard (South Lakes High School, Class of 1993). Reynolds owns many Herndon Hornets basketball records, including most points in a year, most points during a high-school career, and most notably, most points in a game with 53 against I.C. Norcom High School in 2005. Reynolds is 16th all-time in Virginia high school career scoring. He was at one point ranked the fourth best point guard in the nation. Reynolds averaged 28.4 points per game, 4.5 assists per game, and 4.0 steals per game as a senior, and 34.7 points as a junior.
