Despite still working on the 2017 recruiting class, Syracuse basketball isn’t missing a beat in regards to the future.
SU assistant Adrian Autry was in Canada earlier this week when he visited Class of 2019 shooting guard Quincy Guerrier.
On that visit, Autry issued a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-7 prospect, who runs with the CIA Bounce — an AAU program that has a strong pipeline to the Syracuse program.
“Honestly, I was excited,” Guerrier told TNIAAM on Thursday. “I like the offense and defense that they run. But to be honest, I’m just focusing on getting better. That’s the most important part.”
Autry and Guerrier got a chance to talk, and the SU assistant will be in attendance this weekend to watch Guerrier at his AAU tournament in Virginia.
He’ll run with the 17U CIA Bounce team out of Canada.
Oregon, Washington State, Florida, Memphis, Seton Hall, Oklahoma and Syracuse have all offered him, he told TNIAAM.
“Coach Autry told me that I was very talented,” he said. “I was excited.”
It’s all about improving and getting better right now for Guerrier. He isn’t concerned about his recruitment, he understands he hasn’t proven anything yet. These offers are nice, but he’s still a few years away from stepping on a college campus as a student-athlete.
“I still have a long way to go,” he told TNIAAM.
Quincy hasn’t taken any visits yet and doesn’t have anything currently planned.
