Quentin Snider could be Pookie Powell’s replacement

Quentin Snider as I said in a earlier post is on the move to find the right fit for his collegiate career. Thus far, Snider has visits scheduled for UCLA, Memphis, Illinois, and UConn. Also, just got word that a visit to Cincinnati is also in the works. Quentin’s parents are definitely helping him make the decision on where he will be attending school next fall.

“These are the schools where he has the opportunity to come in and play early,” said Scott Snider. “The coaches have established relationships early on, also. We don’t wanna say we’re narrowing our list, because something else may come up, but right now these are the first four or five schools we wanna take a look at.”

The 6-1, 150-pound guard is currently rated a four-star prospect by Rivals.com.

Quentin’s father described his son as an “attacking point guard” who has the ability of beating his defender to the basket or knocking down the long ball. As a junior at Ballard High School, Quentin made 96 3-pointers.

With signee Pookie Powell status uncertain for the Tigers, Quentin could come in and play a lot of minutes. It’s a must that Memphis recruit point guards due to the fact that they will be losing four guards in Joe Jackson, Chris Crawford, Geron Johnson, and Michael Dixon.

“What attracts me is they’re bringing in Nick King, and I love his game. They’re bringing in Austin Nichols, Dom Woodson, Kuran Iverson — it’s a great young class, and it seems they’re lacking a point guard,” said Scott Snider. “It looks like he can come in and fight for some playing time early.”

I received this information from the Commercial Appeal.
