In Kevin Stallings first recruiting class, he was able to land two players from Canada in Marcus Carr and Shamiel Stevenson.
That’s worked really well, so why not try to build a pipeline?
Yesterday, Pitt extended an offer to Montreal native 2019 shooting guard Quincy Guerrier (Thetford Academy).
This is Guerrier’s (6-7, 190) sixth major offer including others from Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, SMU, St. Bonaventure and Syracuse.
“I was informed by my coach Igor Rwigema and I was definitely excited about this offer. I know that historically Pitt has had a great basketball culture and I was definitely interested by the fact that they play in the ACC,” said Guerrier.
“Coach Ferry offered me the scholarship after watching my 7 am practice. He told he was impressed with the fact that I was able to do more than just shoot the ball. In his words I showed him a pretty complete all around game.”
I asked Guerrier the strengths of his game and what’s going to make him a good D-1 player.
“I believe I’m a pretty good scorer and believe I have the ability to score at three levels. Because of my scoring ability, I believe other aspects of my game such as rebounding and passing are often overlooked,” said Guerrier.
When I asked him about Carr and Stevenson, Guerrier said he knows them and played against them last year in the Canadian Biosteel Game.
