The Hudson Catholic (Jersey City, N.J.) star has long been at the top of the 2018 wish list for head coach Tony Bennett, who offered a scholarship in April of 2016. Bennett has maintained consistent contact throughout, and Quinerly made an unofficial visit to Virginia following the 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville.
MadeHoops.com spoke with Quinerly regarding his top seven reveal. The 6’1”, 170-pound rising senior indicated this was a family decision involving comfort level with each program. Quinerly added that official visits are “most likely” the next step as he works toward a decision (click here to read the entire Made Hoops article).
