Quinn Blair is an elite student-athlete currently attending Divine Child in Dearborn, Michigan. Blair is one of the most sought after mid major prospects in the Midwest, currently ranked #10 in the state of Michigan’s class of 2018 per PrepHoops. The two-sport athlete had an excellent AAU campaign with the REACH program where he displayed multi-positional versatility, a non-stop motor, and a knack for doing all of the small things combined with good size, all of which make him one to track for college programs.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great Spring/Summer, you turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us how things went for for you?
QB: The spring and summer with REACH went very well. We won a lot of games and really gelled as a unit as the season went on. I played anywhere from the shooting guard to power forward positions with REACH. I scored, rebounded, and handled the ball a lot.
EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?
QB: I see myself as a small forward. Being 6’6, I can use my size to post up smaller defenders, but at the same time I am still able to shoot well from the outside and use my athleticism and ball handling ability to attack the rim. I rebound well, and play with a high motor.
EM: How often do you work on your game?
QB: I’m in football season now, so at this point I do about 3-4 times a week. When it’s basketball season and in the summer I am in the gym every day. I want to improve my ball handling, on the ball defense, and footspeed.

EM: Shifting a bit to recruiting, can you tell us which schools have offered?
QB: I have offers from Cleveland State, Northern Illinois, Southern Illinois, and Eastern Michigan.
EM: Which schools show interest that haven’t yet offered?
QB: For basketball, Oakland, University of Detroit Mercy, Kent State, William and Mary, Air Force, Akron, Central Michigan, DePaul, North Dakota, and Youngstown State all show good interest. For football, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Purdue, and Miami Ohio have all shown interest recently as well.
EM: Any college campuses you want to get out to and visit?
QB: No camps, but I will be working out for some schools in the near future, and I will be trying to fit in some visits during football and basketball season.
EM: What factors are important to you and your family when making your college decision?
QB: I still have a long way to go, I don’t plan on making a decision regarding a commitment until around this time next year.
The #1 thing that is important to me is the academics. School has always come first, and that takes precedent over any other factors. However, a good program with good coaches that has the right fit for me is what I will be looking for.
Happy for the flurry of college interest for 2018 Divine Child forward Quinn Blair. Does too much good stuff, they were bound to come around
