Quinnipiac Lands Athletic Wing

New England Recruiting Report
Bobcats land first commitment of 2013 class.
Quinnipiac picked up a verbal commitment from six-foot-six swingman Shackquiel Scott on Tuesday night. A graduate of Passaic Tech in New Jersey, Scott will spent a post-graduate year at the Robinson School before joining the Bobcats in the fall of 2013.
Scott led Passaic Tech to a record of 23-9 last year and was named second team Passaic County by the Star Ledger. While Scott has been on Quinnipiac's radar for several months, he made a big name for himself to start the July evaluation period with a standout performance at the Hoop Group Elite Camp.
Scott is a high level athlete who utilizes his explosiveness on both ends of the floor. He excels in transition, gets his head on the rim to finish plays, and has enough size and strength to be able to contribute at both forward positions.
