Quincy Douby, a lanky 6-3, 172 pound sharpshooter from Grady H.S. in Brooklyn, N.Y., will not graduate from high school, according to sources.
Douby did not attend a meeting over the weekend with Hofstra head coach Tom Pecora. Instead, Grady High School coach Jack Ringel and Douby's parents attended the get together. It was determined that Douby can't graduate on time and play next season at Hofstra.
"For academic reasons he will attend prep school, I wish good luck wherever he goes," Hofstra head coach Tom Pecora told us tonight. Quincy committed and signed with Hofstra last Fall.
Douby has not even take the test yet. Douby will likely take a look at attending New Hampton School in New Hampshire under head coach Jamie Arsneault.
Douby had previously told us he had a top three of Seton Hall, Villanova and Hofstra this fall before committing to Pecora's program.
A perimeter marksman, Douby has an overall smooth floor game. He can shoot off the bounce, has a quick shot release and can bring the ball up on offense (though he is not really a pure point). His one glaring weakness at this stage is his general lack of physical strength, and he often has trouble finishing contested shots around the basket.
