Emerging Prospect: Mike Quick

2022 | 6’5 | Combo Guard

Mike Quick

Mike Quick spent a lot of his time this circuit season as a top performer and on our All-Tournament Teams. At our Kansas City event this April, he was 2nd team with Demarion Watson (Iowa St.), Brendan Moss (15+ D1 offers), Cole Glasgow (5+ D1 offers), and NJ Benson (15+ D1 offers). To be mentioned in the same category with those guys is an honor — but Mike Quick deserves to be there! Quick has a couple of JUCO offers and recently picked up a D2 offer from Arkansas Tech, but he’s flying too much under the radar right now.

Quick is a combo guard that has the handles and decision-making skills to play the point. He doesn’t waste a lot of dribbles when he has the ball in his hands — he’s 1 or 2 moves and is going. His quick footwork and downhill burst is something he uses to his advantage to get to the rim. He finishes strong and will put guys in the rim. Defenses have to help and that is when you see his court vision on display — he knows where the open guys are on the perimeter as the defense collapses.

Quick is explosive at getting to the rim in the half-court and also in transition. His fiery defense is one of his best traits. He prides himself on the defensive end of the floor. He’s long and active with extremely quick hands. His lateral quickness is impressive and he has the length and recovering skills to make plays at the rim. Quick will often be defending the opposing team’s best offensive player.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to info@recruitlook.com.
