Jahvon Quinerly, a 6-foot-1 point guard from Hudson Catholic (NJ), has decommitted from Arizona. The top 20 point guard committed to the Wildcats in early August.

“After careful consideration, my family and I have determined it is in my best interest to retract my verbal commitment to the University of Arizona,” Quinerly said in a statement released via Twitter.

“I’d like to thank my extended family and fans for your continued support. Your positivity and kindness never goes unnoticed.”

His future at Arizona, and potentially in college basketball, has been in doubt since an FBI investigation suggested he received payments from then Arizona assistant coach Book Richardson.

Since news broke of the FBI investigation into college basketball, recruits decommitting from schools involved has been on the increase.

It started on September 27th when Class of 2018 four-star forward EJ Montgomery decommitted from Auburn. That same day Louisville lost pledges from Class of 2018 five-star guard Anfernee Simons and 2018 four-star guard Courtney Ramey.

The trend continued with Class of 2019 David Johnson withdrew his pledge to Louisville (Oct. 4th), Class of 2018 J’Raan Brooks decommitted from USC (Oct. 13th), Tyler Herro from Wisconsin, and now Quinerly on Thursday.

The Wildcats still hold commitments from 2018 four-star forward Shareef O’Neal and four-star point guard Brandon Williams. How long either will stay committed is still questionable. News surfaced recently that O’Neal may be looking to move, although nothing official has yet to be announced.

According to 247Sports, Quinerly is the No. 14 overall player for the Class of 2018 and the No. 3 point guard. Quinerly was considering Kansas, Seton Hall, Stanford, Villanova, Virginia and UCLA prior to his commitment to Arizona.
