Quentin Snider is headed to Las Vegas.
The University of Louisville commitment from Ballard High School won't be having any fun, instead he's there for a working weekend trying to prove to folks that he's one of the elite players nationally in the Class of 2014.
Snider is one of 26 players from the 17 & Under teams of playing in Under Armour's spring events selected to participate in the UA All-Star Games, an inaugural event that will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
"I am very excited," Snider said. "I am ready to go out there and try to play my best and prove people wrong. I'm just excited to get a chance."
Playing in the national game, Snider will have a chance to impress scouts and perhaps even McDonald's All-Star game voters while competing against some of the best competition in the country.
He plays AAU for the Louisville Magic, which is playing in the Under Armour circuit this spring and summer. Snider has a sensational spring with the Magic and is considered one of the top 25 prospects nationally in the '14 class.
"This is going to be fun," he said. "There are a lot of good players there, a lot of top 20 guys, so the competition will be great. I am sure there will be a lot of scouts there, so I just want to show what I can do."
Snider will play on the 17U West team, while U of L targets Isaiah Whitehead and Leron Black will play on the 17U East team.
Because he's participating in the All-Star game, Snider won't be competing in the Indiana-Kentucky Junior All-Star games. He had been selected to the ‘core' group of Kentucky players to participate in both games.
