Closer Look: Manny Quezada

We got our first look at St. Albans guard Manny Quezada at the Southern Invitational two weeks ago. Quezada is hearing from a variety of schools and can really score the basketball.

Manny Quezada is one of those guys who is taking care of business this spring both in the classroom and on the court. The native of New York attends prestigious St. Albans in Washington, D.C.

The 6-1 guard will probably receive recruiting interest at both the point and shooting guard positions. In the contests we watched, Quezada looked extremely comfortable operating from the perimeter.

Though not the ideal size to take it to the rim and challenge would be defenders, Quezada isn't afraid to mix it up. We liked his tenacity and scoring abilities. The question remains, at least for college recruiters, is will he be able to transition to the point guard spot or is he best suited to play as a wing?

Quezada listed Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, St. Joseph's, Stanford and Providence among the schools he's interested in at this juncture. Without an offer from any of the schools, Quezada will get his chance during the remainder of the spring and then the summer to make an impression on college recruiters.

He plays with the CAS Warriors and you'll be probably see him at one of the shoe camps in July.
