Qon Murphy is an elite student-athlete that will be attending the Cannon School in metropolitan Charlotte come Fall. Qon is one of the most sought after perimeter players in the country, currently ranked a 4star and #18 shooting guard in the class of 2017 per ESPN. The 6’5 sharpshooter is a triple-double threat every time he takes the floor, and has the type of versatile skillset that has become such a hot commodity in modern basketball. Qon has become a favorite of college coaches in need of a highly skilled guard with the ability to create off the dribble and knock down perimeter jumpshots, while having the court vision to get easy buckets for teammates, and the size and motor to attack the glass.
