On January 24th, Quinerly was selected to the Hudson Catholic chapter of the National Honors society. It’s an accomplishment that he prides himself on to this day. “In my opinion getting selected to the National Honors society was a bigger accomplishment for me and my family. Im glad that I was able to put a smile on my families face”.
With his latest accomplishment Quinerly hopes that younger players that look up to him follow his path. “It’s an underrated accomplishment in this generation, and I want to let the youth know that it’s always books before ball”.
Jahvon is one of many all-Americans who takes basketball and academics seriously it’s almost like a job to him. In two games at the SNY Invitational, He averaged 32 points per game. In the consolation game vs Archbishop Molloy he scored 37 points and fished out 7 assists.

As for JQ’s recruitment, he hasn’t discussed his recruitment since he de-committed from Arizona, but it’s a sure thing that there are many top schools that have him on their radar.
