South Bend Washington's Reynolds sister's headed to Purdue

SOUTH BEND, Ind -- Local basketball stars Mila and Amiyah Reynolds decommit from University of Maryland to become Boilermakers. 

The long awaited decision has finally arrived.

Sister’s Mila and Amiyah Reynolds announced via social media, they will continue their basketball journey at Purdue.

The two originally committed to Maryland and after talking about what would be best for their future, older sister Mila, announced she would enter the transfer portal.

Shortly after, younger sister Amiyah was released from her letter of intent to Maryland.

Just one year separating the Reynolds sisters in age.

Mila and Amiyah put the community on notice during their time together at South Bend Washington, making two state finals appearances and bringing home the 3A state title in 2022.

But they didn’t do it alone, they have a third stat in the mix.

By their side was lifelong friend and teammate, Rashunda Jones and the band is officially back together.

Jones had already committed to Purdue last year and this fall the Boilermakers will have three players from the pride of the west side.

“It feels great. Like it's definitely a really getting that off my plate and stuff. We thought we had it the first time and then I was like sort of relaxed. Then everything kind of amped up going into the transfer portal and such. But I don't know, it feels really great right now just no thinking that I have a home for the next four years or more,” Amiyah said.

“To have them come back home, and be a part of the Hoosier hysteria so to speak, as a as Boilermakers is, it's just it's huge, you know, it's huge. To see them win a state championship and then, you know, end up together at Purdue to try to do this on a national level is it's amazing man,” said Amiyah’s father and coach Steve Reynolds Jr.
