Quincy Olivari, 6'3" guard, commits to Scott Pera and the Rice Owls
September 17, 2018
Updated -- 4:14 p.m.
This afternoon, Quincy Olivari announced - on Twitter - he will attend Rice University and play basketball for Rice Owls' men's basketball Head Coach Scott Pera.
Olivari -- a senior this year at Westlake High School in Atlanta, GA -- chose Rice over Cornell University. He made official visits to both schools earlier this month. Olivari is a quick leaper with good handles. He's also a solid passer and a good three-point shooter -- especially from the corners:
Olivari selected Rice because it's "a great fit" for me.
"Rice is a great fit for me. It's in the perfect place with great academics," Olivari said.
"The team is on the come up; and, we’ve picked up two huge commitments from 2 other people. Along with the people already there, we are going to be a great team. I developed a great relationship with the players already there."
Olivari added, "As for Coach Pera, he's a great coach; and, he’s coached some great players. He's a legend in the game; and, I look forward to playing for him. I look forward to dissecting his brain."
Rice has also received verbal commitments from Ben Moffat (6'9", Rider HS, in Wichita Falls, TX), Zach Crisler (6'8", 205 LaSalle College HS in Pennsylvania), and Max Fiedler (6'10", 230, Melbourne HS, in Melbourne, FL).
The Early Signing Period to sign National Letters of Intent is November 14-21, 2018.
