Hearing Sean Miller is pushing for a commitment from Jahvon quinerly. He visited this past weekend. Would be 2nd 5-star PG in 2018 class.
Quinerly is a scorer who has the ability to make plays for himself and others. He likes to get to the basket though he is not an explosive athlete and generally plays below the rim. Quinerly is a good finisher as he has a soft touch. However, he does need to become more consistent from the perimeter.
Quinerly averaged 20.4 points, 5.3 assists along with 3.1 rebounds in 2016-17. He shot 56% from the floor, 44% from beyond the arc and 73% from the charity stripe.
An ESPN Insider had this to say about the Jersey City native:
ďHeís highly skilled with an instinctive feel for the game. There isnít much he canít do with the ball in his hands and heís exceptionally smooth while doing it. Heís gifted both physically and mentally with the basketball. He has outstanding hands and is virtually ambidextrous as a ball-handler and passer, but he also has natural poise and presence with the ball in his hands along with the acumen to read opposing defenses.Ē
Arizona head coach Sean Miller is a tremendous recruiter so it is no surprise that the Wildcats are in the mix for Quinerly. However, there is a question at this point whether Quinerly fits in with the Wildcats.
Arizona will lose senior backup point guard Jackson Parker-Cartwright along with graduate student Talbott Denny. There is also a chance that junior Allonzo Trier and sophomore Rawle Alkins will enter the NBA draft next year. Both tested the draft waters this offseason.
Arizona has brought in four-star shooting guard Brandon Randolph, four-star Alex Barcello, and four-star wing Emmanuel Akot as part of their five-man 2017 recruiting class. Miller also has received a verbal commitment from 2018 five-star point guard Brandon Williams. In addition, the Wildcats are in contention for four-star point guard Devon Dotson.
