    NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Lester Quinones, the 6-4, 210-pound shooting guard from IMG Academy (FL), plans to sign during the spring signing period.

    “Yeah, I’m definitely waiting until the spring,” Quinones said Saturday at the National Prep Showcase after he had 16 points on 2-of-9 shooting in an 80-57 loss to Woodstock Academy.

    On Friday, Quinones, rankd No. 88 by ESPN.com in the Class of 2019, went off for 30 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists in a loss to Hargrave Military Academy (VA).

    On Saturday, LSU head coach Will Wade and assistant Bill Armstrong were on hand for Quinones following his recent official visit with Trendon Watford. Quinones said LSU is making him a priority.

    “Yeah, as of right now,” he said. “They’re telling me that they’re losing key shooters this year and they need a scorer to come in. They’re prioritizing me right now with the recruitment telling me I’m their main priority so they’ve been texting and calling me a lot.”

    Still, Quinones is also hearing from N.C. State, UCLA, Georgia, Florida and St. John’s, among others.

    “There’s a lot of schools asking me to visit,” he said.
