While the Illinois football team was hosting the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday, John Groce and the Illinois basketball team were hosting one of the top point guards from the Class of 2014 in Louisville, KY native Quentin Snider.
Snider has received plenty of offers, but is heavily interested in the UCLA Bruins, Connecticut Huskies, Michigan State Spartans, Illinois Fighting Illini, Cincinnati Bearcats, Oklahoma State Cowboys, and USC Trojans.
Since his decommitment from the Louisville Cardinals, it’s been a mad rush for Snider’s commitment. He has already visited UCLA and Illinois, but still has official visits with Michigan State and UCONN.
Currently, the majority of the recruiting experts on the 247Sports Crystal Ball favor Snider picking UCLA. Out of the 20 experts, 17 of them like the Bruins when it comes to Quentin Snider’s recruitment.
Quentin Snider would have been a huge commitment for the Illini this weekend, but they will have to do a little more to earn his verbal.
Snider is an amazing leader on the court and can handle the ball very well. On top of his ball handling, he can shoot, penetrate the lane, pass, and defend. Snider’s weakest abilities have to be his size and athleticism, but he is still a pretty athletic PG.
The four-star recruit is currently ranked 2nd in the state of Kentucky, 11th among point guards, and 51st among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
