Duquesne Basketball Recruiting

JUCO PG Quincy McGriff Plans Official Visit To Duquesne Following Zoom Call



One thing is pretty apparent, and that’s Duquesne has legitimate interest in JUCO point guard Quincy McGriff, and he feels the same way about the Dukes program.

Just a week after Keith Dambrot traveled to Utah to officially extend McGriff an offer, Duquesne conducted a Zoom interview on Thursday with this talented 6’6″ guard. Things went well enough that McGriff has now arranged to make an upcoming official visit to learn more about the Dukes program first hand.

“What stood out to me about the call was how much they care about player development and how much they really want their players to get better,” said McGriff. “A big thing in my college decision will be how much do coaches really want me to get better and it seems like they’re really high on that. On the Zoom Call, first they talked about what my daily schedule would be like. Practice in the morning and after rest up and then go to classes and maybe have a night class. They then went into detail about player development, how I’d be working out with different coaches throughout the day on like ballhandling, shooting and different aspects of the game. Then they showed me pictures of the campus, the facilities and the basketball arena.”

“The thing that impressed me the most was living arrangements at Duquesne and the location of the campus. From the pictures, it looked like a really nice place. Also, like I mentioned before, the player development that Duquesne has set up. It’s really obvious how much they’re willing to help you get better not only on the basketball court but after your basketball career is over with, they want you to be good people. I liked my conversation with Coach Dambrot. He told me about the family relationship that him and his coaching staff have and how much of a family he wants his team to be. I like how he said that he’s had the same coaching staff for years so that shows me that he’s a loyal person himself. I know it’s an early stage in our relationship but I feel like I can really trust him.”

As mentioned earlier, McGriff tells PSN that he’s arranged an official visit to Duquesne, which will take place on April 14-16. McGriff says he’s “very excited” about that and will be making the trip with his parents.

McGriff, who has three seasons of athletic eligibility remaining, now holds offers from Duquesne, Florida International, Cleveland State, Portland, Texas A&M, Cal Poly, Iona, Northern Illinois, Oral Roberts, UTSA, Drexel, Stony Brook, Quinnipiac and Hampton.
