Quinn Slazinski, a 6-foot-8 wing from Huntington (WV) Prep caught up with us at D1Vision to discuss his recruiting. Slazinski has been on unofficial visits to Michigan State, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Michigan.

Texas A&M– “I was the first kid they offered in the 2019 class and it was personally my first offer. It’s only an hour away from where I grew up, so they’ve seen me play countless times. They know what my strengths are and how I want to play. They encourage me to push the ball off a rebound and just play my game. Plus every person I’ve ever been friends with around my area either plays or attends school at Texas A&M.”

Michigan– “Michigan was a good visit because the way they played really appealed to me. They said they can use me as a 6-foot-8 Nik Stauskas and get me open shots in the corner. They play kind of up tempo from the jump, I like that a lot.”

TCU– “It was a beautiful campus and coach [Jamie] Dixon is really turning that team into a top national contender. They did really well in the Big 12 last year and I can only see them becoming more successful. The team runs a certain game style where they have athletic long wings running the floor, so that definitely opened my eyes up.”

Michigan State– “My mother and uncle attended Michigan State. I grew up with all my cousins dreaming of going to school there. All my relatives live around East Lansing and they talk about the school a lot to me. They look at me as a player who can come off screens ready to shoot. It looks like they run good plays to get their players open and that looks good to me too.”

Texas– “It looks like they are going to have a really good team this year and I am in love with the city of Austin. It’s a beautiful school where they prioritize academics which is what I am looking for in a school.”

Slazinski told us at D1Vision that he will be going on another unofficial visit to Michigan over Thanksgiving. He told us Kansas, Purdue, and California are also showing strong interest.

Slazinski is coming off an impressive Hoops and Dreams Showcase this past weekend. He had 17 points against Word of God (NC) and 20 points against Northwood Temple (NC) Academy. He told us at D1Vision that UCLA and Ohio State reached out to him after his stellar performances.

According to 247Sports, Slazinski is the No. 213 overall player for the Class of 2019 and the No. 60 small forward.
