Born May 13, 1999, Quincy Guerrier played at Thetford Academy in Thetford Mines, Quebec, before committing to Syracuse. Guerrier chose the school over other top NCAA contenders, most notably the Oregon Ducks.

The young baller’s continued success in the March Madness tournament is sure to further cement his potential. He is considered to be one of the top prospects in the forthcoming 2021 NBA Draft, should he chose to declare himself for it.
