Scout.com‘s Brian Snow (@BSnowScout) posted a recruiting update today pertaining to point guard Jahvon Quinerly, a 6’1 high school junior out of Hudson Catholic in Jersey City, New Jersey. Villanova has been heavily recruiting the talented youngster for quite some time now, hoping to lure him to the Main Line for the 2018-19 season. Here’s the article written by Snow on Scout.com…
Four-star floor general Jahvon Quinerly put on a show at the Metro Classic this past weekend in Union, New Jersey. In leading his Hudson Catholic Hawks to a commanding win over Trenton Catholic, Quinerly scored over 30 points and put on a clinic passing the basketball. With his junior season continuing to go well, the talented youngster is seeing his recruitment only get busier.
“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.
“Ohio State, Stanford, Kansas, Villanova, Virginia, Arizona, Maryland, Syracuse, and a few other schools are all recruiting me,” noted Quinerly.
Villanova has been a school that has long been tied to the Jersey City native, 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 their recruitment, and Quinerly has significant interest in the Big Ten school.
“I made an unofficial visit during the football season and saw a game which was a great experience. 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.”
Arizona has also picked things up in a big way recently. 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. 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 to play out the summer before making a decision, but he admits nothing is set in stone as to when he will ultimately make his college decision.
