3 Star Atlanta Native Quinton Stephens Verbally Commits to Georgia Tech

FP'd for important. -LB

Amid the weekend events of crushing UVA at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field, high school basketball player Quinton Stephens has committed to Georgia Tech over Miami, Clemson, Tennessee among others. He rates as a 3 star recruit by virtually all scouting and recruiting resources.

He's a local product from nearby Marist School who wants to major in Environmental Engineering. As you can tell, he has a slight frame and a 6'8"-6'9" build and weighs in at 180-190 lbs. He can shoot from almost anywhere from the court with ease and fluidity. Though he played mostly in the post in high school, he stated he sees himself as a small forward at the college level, for which he has great length to guard and rebound at that position. He'll certainly have to put on weight to not get pushed around at this level, but it certainly is a solid pickup for Brian Gregory and the Georgia Tech basketball program.

Quinton talks about how he came to this decision here:

"I went to Clemson the previous week and really enjoyed it," Stephens told the AJC. "But coming here [to Georgia Tech], it really stood out to me that it was a great place. I fit in really well with the players and coaches. And just the atmosphere and all around … it really was a good fit for all the things I was looking for."

He will come in along side 4 star recruit Solomon Poole in the 2013 class as part of a new era in the Brian Gregory regime here on the flats. It is certainly a good day for the direction of the program. Here's to more additions to next year's freshman class.
