Quarterman working on game

The recruiting process is really heating up for Tim Quarterman.

Three-star guard Tim Quarterman is looking to make a big impression this summer. Running with the Atlanta Celtics, the Savannah (Ga.) Johnson High School guard is ready to standout. Starting at the Adidas Invitational, it looks like he is doing just that.

At 6-foot-5, Quarterman has the size, athleticism, and skill set to be an intriguing player. He is also aware of what he has to work on in order to be a matchup nightmare for opponents.

"I have been in the gym a lot working on what I need to work on," said Quarterman. "I think I have been playing well."

He continued, "I am working on my pull up jumper, getting to the hole, making my teammates better, and helping them get in the positions where they can score."

College coaches seem to have been taking note of his game. There is a hoard of schools following him, and he says ever since June 15 his phone has been blowing up.

"Man it has been crazy," Quarterman said of his recruitment. "Coach told me when June 15 came that my phone was going to be blowing up. I told him I knew, but he told me I didn't know. I definitely didn't know, it was crazy, but I like it."

As it stands right now, most of the heavy hitters in the Southeast are getting involved in his recruitment.

"George Mason, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Massachusetts, Seton Hall, Wake Forest, Florida, Florida State, Mississippi State, a lot of schools," he listed.

The Georgia Bulldogs are definitely working hard to keep him close to home.

"They really want me to stay in the state and play for them," Quarterman said of Georgia. "The coaching staff and I have a good connection. It is definitely a good school."

When it comes to Georgia Tech, Brian Gregory has a major help in the form of committed point guard Solomon Poole.

"(Poole) is recruiting me the hardest," he said. "He is recruiting me harder than Georgia Tech. He is definitely recruiting me the hardest, and I like what Georgia Tech has to offer."

Also new coach Rick Ray and Mississippi State are making sure to be a major factor in his recruitment.

"It is a great staff," said Quarterman of Mississippi State. "They call and check up on me to see how things are going. They are just a great staff."

For now Quarterman plans to take things slow and simply play it out in July. After then he has a good idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I am looking for a family oriented team and how together the team is on and off the court," said Quarterman. "Also I look for the little things like how the coaches and the team get along."
