We’ve seen a lot of players come through our doors over the years, varying in appearance, skill level, and everything in between. We decided to put forth a “Getting to Know” series on some players who have attended events but still remain on the lesser-known side of things. Each of these prospects embody being a student-athlete and getting it done in the classroom as well as on the basketball court, and today’s edition will take a closer look at Quinton Scheuermann of United Faith Christian Academy and the Charlotte Royals.
Scheuermann attended our Queen City Showcase and Phenom Challenge over the last two weekends, where he stood out as one of the most enticing prospects for the Royals. At our Queen City Showcase, we stated, “There are a lot of familiar faces with the Royals and Scheuermann continues to stand out. He possesses nice size and a quality motor, which allows him to consistently rebound the ball on both ends of the floor. Scheuermann displayed touch, excellent vision, and great unselfishness out of the post—always looking to make the best available play. College coaches should be taking a hard look throughout his senior season.”
That excerpt from two weeks ago really only begins to scratch the surface of Scheuermann and his overall appeal at the next level. At 6-foot-10 with IQ, size, and fluidity, it should be pretty easy to envision various scholarship-level opportunities arising over the next twelve months. Scheuermann is a very steady, reliable presence on both ends of the floor and understands how to impact the game without ever needing to be a focal point. He’s a quality defender and rebounder with useful length and athleticism. Scheuermann just isn’t going to make many negative plays. His conservative play style fits perfectly with this Royals group, as it allows him to play a pretty quiet, fundamental game and naturally end up in double-double territory. Right now, the big man should certainly have more going on within his recruitment and will eventually emerge as a priority for various programs.
