Cougar Prospect: Quasim Pugh

Here is the NY Daily News article regarding Quasim Pugh and his transfer to St. Thomas More to play for Coach Jerry Quinn his senior year of high school. At point-guard, Pugh prefers the fast-break offense (very nice) and is transferring to his third-high school in four years (started at Banneker and played two seasons at Worcester Academy in Massachusetts) to play with more athletic players and for more exposure. (Don’t worry kid; you made the CofC Sports Fan’s radar)

Pugh’s quote from the article regarding his future,
"Right now, College of Charleston is showing the
most interest, and I like them the most. I know coach (Bobby) Cremins is a
natural-born point guard coach.”
–It seems Mr. Pugh is also a smart kid; Cremins could develop this 5’10” point-guard into a sensation at the Pro-level and he probably would be an excellent fit in the College of Charleston/Bobby Cremins' "run-and-gun" style of play. We'll keep our eye on Quasim this next season and see how he grows physically and develops as a player now that he is on a team that is on more of a national level.
