William & Mary has been grabbing some gems from the Midwest over the past two seasons, adding Luke Loewe, Justin Pierce, and David Cohn to a roster primarily made up of East Coast products.  Over the weekend, head coach Tony Shaver and the Tribe were at it again.  Livonia (Mich.) Divine Child 2018 small forward Quinn Blair made his collegiate decision, committing to William & Mary over 17 other scholarship offers.

A big stock riser in July, Blair is a high level shooter that can’t be left open for a second. Whether it’s in the pick n’ pop, the catch and shoot game, or creating on the perimeter, Blair is a threat to pull the trigger. A fluid, pure shooter, Blair has one of the most effortless and smooth releases in the country.

A versatile forward, Blair has some tools down on the block as well. He’s more of a finesse post prospect that’s comfortable fading away from the basket and will occasionally take smaller players down inside and shoot over the top. 

Perhaps most of all, William & Mary is going to get great floor spacing with Blair. A player that finds the soft spots against the coverage, defenders have to find Blair, which should create a lot of driving opportunities at the rim for his teammates. Willing to move without the ball, Blair has the potential to be a huge zone buster at the mid-major level as well. 

Blair is the first commitment for the Tribe in 2018. William & Mary is expected to have a substantial recruiting class with six more scholarships available.
