Endless Motor Sports had the privilege of speaking with Wayne (OH) point guard Darius Quisenberry about the transition from Tecumseh, additions to his game over the summer and where he’s at with the recruiting process.
I. Transition to Wayne High School
EM: How are things going for Wayne so far from a team and individual standpoint?
DQ: I think we are coming together well. Coach Trav is a great coach and we all bond well together. I think if we play the way Coach Trav plans for us to play it should be a good year. From an individual standpoint I think it was a great move for me because of the better competition day in and day out, and just the level of play is higher. Which means I can’t take days off so I have to keep my game up every day.
II. Off-Season Improvements
EM: What did you work on and add to your game over the later summer and fall?
DQ: I just worked one everything overall, but the one thing I did in particular was perfect my floater because I had to go in the paint and being a guard my size at 6’0 I can’t go in trying to jump with 6’10 defenders, so the floater was a great addition to my game. I always say everything in my game can always get better and I can keep improving.
III. Recruiting Update
EM: You really turned some heads on he AAU circuit last year with King James, what offers did you pick up?
DQ: I have 3 offers so far – Akron, Wright State, and Oakland University.
EM: What other schools are showing interest?
DQ: Ohio State, Butler, Dayton, Ohio, Northern Kentucky, Kent State, Radford, Miami (OH), Cincinnati, Toledo and Bowling Green
EM: Any visits line up?
DQ: Not right now. I’m busy with practice and we have games almost every Saturday, but I have been texting with coaches and we talk but I went on a couple of visits before the season started.
IV. Season Goals
EM: What are your goals this season for both the team and yourself:
DQ: Well obviously the ultimate goal is to win a state championship, but we have to go game by game and first win our league hopefully. Personally, I just want to be the best leader I can be for my team and the rest will follow. God gave me this blessing and I am going to take advantage of it. So every time I step on the court I’m going to go as hard as I can and play every game like it’s my last because you never know when the game of basketball can be taken from you.
