Class of 2018 point guard Jahvon Quinerly is one of the top playmakers in his class. A solid and steady player who prides himself on making the right decisions, Quinerly has stood tall at the Steph Curry Select Camp.
About the opportunity to learn from a two time NBA MVP, Quinerly said, “It is a great experience to learn from the best coaches, players, and Stephen Curry himself about how to be the best point guard you can be.”
With his high IQ and tremendous feel for the game, Quinerly has attracted major college interest from all over the country. In fact his phone has been extremely busy since June 15.
“I have heard from Virginia, Villanova, Xavier, Stanford, California, Butler, Seton Hall, St. John’s, Rutgers, Wake Forest, and Notre Dame,” said Quinerly.
One school that has long been linked to Quinerly is Villanova. In fact the Wildcats recently had Quinerly on campus, and he continues to build a strong bond with Jay Wright.
“I was just down at Villanova for their team camp,” said Quinerly. “I think Jay Wright was at three of my four games, so he took a lot of time to watch me play. He told me to keep working and that I have a bright future.”
He continued about Villanova, “They definitely let their guards go and they like their guards to make plays, so I think I would fit in very well there.”
Another recent visit for Quinerly was to Virginia. The ACC stalwart hosted Quinerly following the recent NBPA Top 100 Camp, and he was impressed with Tony Bennett and the UVa campus.
About the trip, Quinerly said, “It was a great experience. They are pushing me really hard. The campus was great, and they showed me a good time.”
“They said that they’d let me go as a guard,” noted Quinerly. “They let their guards go, but they slow the game down as well, so Coach Bennett says I would fit in well there because I can play in any style.”
Another school that could get in the mix is Stanford. A big time student, Quinerly is intrigued by the combination of academics and athletics at Stanford.
“It is great to know that Stanford is interested,” said Quinerly. “That is a school that is not only a basketball school, it is a great academic school, and that is something my parents and I really pay attention to.”
For now Quinerly is in no rush to make a college decision, and he hopes to learn a lot more about all of the schools recruiting him.
