Indianola guard Quinn Vesey is continuing to solidify himself as one of the best available guards in Iowa, and he’s heading into 2019 with some college hoops options to weigh.
Currently, Vesey holds offers from Briar Cliff and Dordt, and says a lot of D3s are talking to him; he specifically mentioned Central, Simpson and Bethany Lutheran.
“I’m just hoping to keep going and keep building,” said Vesey, who’s averaging 19.5 points per game this season. “The offers I have right now are great, but I’m just going to keep working, and whenever it feels right, if it’s one of those schools that I have, or if another school comes along … I don’t know, I just need to take a lot of visits and see what’s going to work best for me as a program and a school overall.”
It was with All Iowa Attack 17U this past spring and summer when Vesey was able to gain some attention from area colleges. He says playing top competition from around the country is a big reason why he’s been so successful this season.
“We were traveling everywhere, and I got some looks from colleges and a couple offers. It just helped me grow as a player to play against all that better competition,” said Vesey. “And it helped me for this season, because I’m going against people now that might not be as athletic as guys I was going against this summer.”
Vesey’s success this season has been a major factor in the Indians’ red-hot 7-1 start. The energy is up this season, and he’s not only scoring at a high clip, but has been a team leader, too.
“The jump from junior to senior is huge and one thing that’s different for me is my role in practices and pushing the guys. The energy in our practices is substantially better than it’s ever been. And our practices are exciting and you get that feeling like you’re in a game,” said Vesey.
“So one thing I’ve gotten better at is bringing that energy every day, and getting our guys ready for when it is game time and it’s not that much of a shock because we have that same energy.”
