There wasn’t a five-star player from the class of 2018 who failed to meet the expectations set before him by his recruiting ranking more than Villanova freshman guard Jahvon Quinerly.
With Jalen Brunson leaving early for the NBA, everything was in place for Quinerly to step right in and become the next great point guard under Jay Wright.
While Quinerly was the guard with the one and done potential, it was Collin Gillespie who became the lead guard by season’s end as Quinerly ultimately fell out of the rotation all together for the Wildcats.
He finished the season averaging just 3.3 points per game, only appearing in 25 games averaging just nine minutes per.
Quinerly will have no shortage of potential programs chasing after him, even after his poor season at Villanova. There’s no word yet on who might be interested, but I would expect several of the teams who made it to the end of his recruitment to get involved.
That list included UCLA, Seton Hall, Stanford, Arizona, Kansas, and Virginia.
Of that list UCLA, Seton Hall, and Virginia all stand out as teams needing a lead guard.
If you consider the fact that one of those teams just happens to be a short distance from his home in New Jersey and will have a need for a guard, it’s pretty easy to make a prediction without much information.
Wherever he lands, Quinerly will have to sit out a season (unless he is able to acquire a waiver from the NCAA) due to the transfer restriction rules.
Prediction: Seton Hall
