Quincy Jefferson 6’3 170 2021 Varina High School, Richmond Va
Quincy’s physical profile and athleticism are simply off the charts! He has a strong, chiseled frame and powerful legs and combines that with very good quickness, speed and agility. Quincy is also a wide receiver and safety on the Varina High School football team and enjoys great success in both sports largely due to his physical attributes but also an amazing work ethic and competitiveness. His talents on the basketball court and versatility make him one of the most exciting prospects in his class in Virginia. A three-level scorer who can beat you with shiftiness off the dribble or just overwhelm you with his power, Quincy is also an active rebounder and versatile defender. His offensive game is highlighted by his deft shooting touch and ability to knock down shots from all over the floor. He can hit the catch and shoot three or step into the three pointer off the dribble.
He hits the pull up jumper and effectively uses shot fakes and jabs to create separation. He can drive hard and stop on a dime for the pull-up and knocks down the 1 or 2 dribbles pull up at an impressive rate. Also uses a very good floater to finish over taller defenders. Quincy plays with impeccable balance; he’s a physical player who can play through contact. While his shooting skills really stand out as a clear strength he can also create off the bounce using basic crossovers, hesitations and a good mix of power and speed. He can punish defenders at the rim and absorbs contact nicely finishing at a high rate. Quincy demonstrates the ability to play either guard position as he can take the ball out of an action and make plays for others as well or square you up and beat you. Really aggressive yet under control, he crashes the glass on both ends of the floor and is a guy who gives you 6-8 rebounds per game. His explosive leaping ability, timing, and effort make him a factor on the glass and someone you have to keep a body on and account for. Defensively Quincy guards multiple positions effectively. He can defend the dribble with quickness, footwork and lateral quickness and he doesn’t mind playing physical and guarding bigger players.
His motor and energy combined with his physical attributes make for an impact floor presence as he averages 3-4 steals per game in addition to his double-figure scoring averages. At the recent Old Dominion University Team Camp Quincy had an early morning football practice for Varina High School and immediately afterward made the trip to Norfolk where he participated in a pair of games for Varina’s basketball team and played at a high level; that familiar competitiveness and energy he brings not at all lessened by the day’s workload. Quincy should be catching the eye of college coaches this year as he takes on a bigger role for a young yet talented Varina High School Basketball Team. One of the better rising juniors, his stock should skyrocket as the year progresses.
