As a Recruit
Jahvon Quinerly developed into one of the best stories of the 2023 NCAA Tournament. As a junior in an opening matchup against Notre Dame, the Crimson Tide’s do-everything point guard went down with what turned out to be a torn ACL and Alabama was beaten by the Irish. A year later, it was Quinerly pouring in 22 points against Maryland to lead Alabama to the Sweet 16. “Just tearing my ACL and being able to get back to this point – to make it back to the Sweet 16 for a second time, it’s amazing,” he said. During the 2020-2021 season, Quinerly was named the SEC Tournament Most Outstanding Player, helping lead the Crimson Tide to the program's first tournament championships since 1991. He started his career at Villanova, where he averaged 3.2 points and 9.1 minutes per game in 25 appearances in his lone season with the Wildcats. Quinerly has been a part of several national NIL campaigns, including with Express and Dunkin’. He's originally from Hudson Catholic and was ranked as a five-star recruit, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.
