The state of North Carolina is blessed with an over abundance of talent. In the North Carolina 2018 class, 60 plus players signed with D1 schools and another 40 plus signed to play at the D2, D3, NAIA or Juco level. Quite impressive numbers! This year, the 2019 class is on the same course to have 100 plus players continue to play at the collegiate level. In our unsigned senior spotlight, we want to take a closer look at D1 prospect 6’4 Quest Aldridge of Mt. Tabor High School in Winston-Salem. Quest checks in at no. 39 in our most recent North Carolina 2019 rankings. http://www.phenomhoopreport.com/rankings/2019-north-carolina-rankings/
We have seen Quest Aldridge numerous times, whether it is in a high school setting, travel ball setting or a camp setting. Each and every time, Quest Aldridge makes a statement with his play. We’re talking about a long, wirey point guard that has excellent basketball instincts. He has a high basketball IQ, solid fundamentals and above average athleticism. He has tremendous poise and a mature approach to the game, not to mention he simply makes his teammates better, which is exactly what you want out of your point guard. Quest has a well balanced floor game, whether it is scoring, distributing the ball, playing defense or just doing things to help his team win. Mt. Tabor currently sports an 11-3 record and traditionally is one of the stronger teams in the NCHSAA 3A division. For the season, Quest is putting up outstanding numbers on a quality team against quality competition. He is averaging 16.2 PPG, 6’0 APG, 5.8 RPG and is shooting 78% from the free throw line. What more can you ask our your point guard? His size, length, basketball IQ and composure translates to the D1 level.
