THOUGHTS ON QUINN:

Kevin Quinn is one of the sharpest 3-point shooters in the state of Virginia. After watching him progress throughout his high school career, he has clearly proven he has what it takes to play at the next level. Quinn is a vicious combo guard with phenomenal athletic ability. After transferring to Virginia Episcopal School earlier this year, Quinn quickly found his role in VES Head Coach Curtis Staples' offense'the sixth man. After just a few short minutes at the beginning of every game, KQ would come off the bench and immediately bring a strong offensive force into play. He is a VERY reliable team player who never complains about playing time or the amount of shots he is putting up. Instead, Quinn checks in, lines up around the arc, and knows it's time to go to work. Quinn managed to knock down 65 3-point shots off the bench this year in just 26 games (2.5 per game), and amazed crowds with his incredible basketball maturity and devotion for success. Quinn has great size and attacks the glass strong, no matter the size of his opponent. He plays with plenty of heart and will definitely be a key piece for his Bishops' squad next season. He is a hard worker with endless potential both on and off the hardwood. If he can continue to develop the defensive aspect of his game, grow stronger, and put the finishing touches on the rest of his craft, Quinn will be a nightmare to handle here in the coming years. After a stellar AAU spring evaluation period, the 6'4' rising senior received his first offer from VMI out of the Big South Conference. With the summer live period just around the corner, people can expect this young gun to reel in several offers throughout the course of the summer. If you're looking for a lights out shooter with a strong passion for the game of basketball, Kevin Quinn is definitely your guy. The future is bright for this Durham, North Carolina native.
