How do I get assigned to a unit closer to home?

I need some info, recently I enlisted in the army reserves as a 42A. When my recruiter took me to what was to be my unit we were told they did not have any positions must have been an error at MEPS. I live in san Antonio TX my recruiter wanted to have me reassigned through the same battalion so he made a call directly to the battalion. AKO was updated to reflect the unit I am assigned to now is out of Austin TX 97miles from my home. I live in one of the biggest military towns and they want me to travel almost 100 miles to my unit… Is there anyway to have this fixed and why would my recruiter be trying to avoid having MEPS assign me a new unit? HELP
