Things change fast in recruiting, but 5-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly’s recruitment looks set to run through the end of September at the very least. Via Adam Zagoria, fellow 5-star Naz Reid just said that he and Quinerly will take official visits together to Kansas and UCLA.

ESPN’s Jeff Borzello classified it a bit differently, saying Reid says it is “likely” to occur. So I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Both schools made Quinerly’s top 7, and being far away from New Jersey they both figured to get visits. Reid has also said that him and Quinerly have discussed playing together in college after several successful years on the same AAU team - if that’s true the schools in common on their lists are Arizona, UCLA and Kansas.
Villanova has long been considered the frontrunner for Quinerly, but a recent visit to Arizona seems to have put them towards the front of his recruitment as well. Virginia, Seton Hall and Stanford are the other schools in contention.
We’ll wait with bated breath to see if Villanova gets an official visit. As things stand today, Quinerly would have two official visits left to use if he makes these trips.
UPDATE (Thursday 7/20 10:30am): Jahvon Quinerly has arrived at the UAA All-American Camp and had a different story to tell Adam Zagoria:
Jahvon Quinerly said he and Naz Reid will probably visit Kansas in late August not September. Said no UCLA date yet.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) July 20, 2017
Jahvon Quinerly also told me he could take an official to Seton Hall. Hasn't decided all 5 yet.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) July 20, 2017
Sounds like the Naz Reid / Jahvon Quinerly visit to UCLA will be in October.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) July 20, 2017
