In the video, Quinn first describes how growing up he was a three sport athlete and that baseball was his main sport. However, circumstances eventually led to him focusing on basketball.
Quinn then talks about his parents and his relationship with them being close. In fact, he wears the number 11 for his parents. The reason why, which you’ll hear when you view the video, is actually quite heartwarming.
Quinn then delves into his official visit and how he loved the facilities. He talks about what his parents thought about Coach Chris Mack. He then describes what he specifically liked about his head coach and why it allows him to trust Coach Mack.
Quinn discusses why Louisville feels like home to him. He talks of the city scenery and how it compares to his hometown and the town where he attended prep school.
Next, Quinn discusses the two most important things he has learned thus far in college. It involves the word work. He talks about the adjustment of being in a college basketball program and how he is changing and getting better.
Finally, he discusses how the team is coming together and gelling. Apparently, they’re gelling pretty well as he describes his relationship with his new teammates as that of brothers.
