Three offers in a row for NY wing
Talk about it in Basketball Recruiting Board
It's been a whirlwind past week for 6'5" wing Quinton Rose (Bishop Kearney '16).
One of the stars of the Albany City Rocks 16u team, he was with his family on vacation before last week's start of the July Live Period, when he got a call that helped propel his recruitment into motion, landing his first 3 offers after a big time performance at a camp in Washington D.C.
Rose was on his way back from a family vacation when his AAU coach with the City Rocks 16's, Jim Hart, called his father that set in motion a big three days for the Rochester area star.
"Coach called my Dad and said I was invited to play in the Victor Oladipo All-American Camp in Washington D.C. He said it was OK for me to go, so I went," Rose said about the circumstances about the invite.
Rose was a last minute invite, so he said he didn't have time to think about what he was going to, or to even be nervous.
"Being a last minute invite I didn't have time to think about anything at all. I just went down and played and didn't worry about who might be watching me," Rose said.
Who was watching was over 100 Division 1 and 2 coaches who got to see Rose put up some of his best ever performances. He said he felt comfortable playing with some of the best players in the country, and it showed by having him land his first three college offers based on his strong camp.
"Memphis was the first to offer me. George Washington offered me about 2 hours later, and then I got one from Providence, plus I've been hearing a lot from Syracuse." Rose said about the offers and interest he has received.
Amazingly, Rose said he wasn't surprised about receiving the offers, saying he trusts his abilities and believes in his game, and he hopes that his good play continues this coming week at the Nike 16u Peach Jam in South Carolina.
"I'm just going to go out and keep playing my game," Rose said. "We have been playing well as a team winning the Gym Rat Challenge, Rumble in the Bronx, and now Basketbull Summer Championships, and I believe if we play well as a team, that my game personally will thrive as well."

Is his AAU coach related to Matt Hart?
