Sacramento State Signs Joey Quigley

Sacramento State has secured yet another commitment for their recruiting class, with 6’8’’ F Joey Quiqley. Quigley attended Southerwestern Illinois College last year, and will begin his career with the Hornets as a junior eligibility wise. He is the sixth member of Sacramento State's recruiting class.

“Like some of the other recruits we’ve brought in this year, Joey is a very versatile player,” Katz said. “He can primarily play three positions (shooting guard and both forward spots), and even got some playing time at point guard in junior college. He is a tough kid who can handle and pass the ball well, and really knows how to play the game of basketball.”
Quigley played primarily as a power forward, but obviously looking at the quote from Katz he will be moved around a bit. Last year he averaged 7.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks per game. He is a very solid athlete, as the article notes he was also an all-state football player in high school.

I don't think Quigley will be called upon to start many games, but he should continue to add depth for the Hornets as they look to qualify for the Big Sky tournament next season.
