Four-star floor general Jahvon Quinerly put on a show at the Metro Classic. Leading his team to a commanding win, Quinerly scored over 30 points and put on a clinic passing the basketball. With his junior season continuing to go well, Quinerly is seeing his recruitment only get busier.
About his junior year, Quinerly said, “I have been working on my leadership skills, being able to pick my spots, and also score while being someone who gets my teammates involved.”
When it comes to his recruitment, a long list of schools are making him a priority.
Villanova has been a school that has long been tied to Quinerly, and he continues to make consistent visits there and stays in close contact with the coaches.
“They play hard and the coaching staff does a great job,” said Quinerly of the Wildcats. “I have been to a few Villanova games and it has been a great experience. It is a school with great fans and I like the coaching staff. Villanova is just a great school.”
Also the Ohio State Buckeyes continue to pick things up in his recruitment, and Quinerly has significant interest in the Big Ten school.
“I made an unofficial during the football season and saw a game which was a great experience,” said Quinerly of Ohio State. “They are just telling me I could come in and run the team, and that I would be someone who could get a lot of playing time right away.”
Recently Arizona has also picked things up in a big way. The Wildcats are looking to add a point guard in 2018, and Quinerly is someone high on their wish list.
“They are texting me almost every day,” said Quinerly of Arizona. “Book Richardson is a great guy. They tell me I could come in and play right away, and that they’d help me get stronger and go to the NBA.”
At the moment the plan for Quinerly is play out the summer before making a decision, but he admits nothing is set in stone for when a college choice will come.
