Quentin Snider is off to a great start to his AAU season.

The 2014 Louisville commit was honored as one of top performers at the adidas VIP Exclusive Run by Scout.com recruiting analyst Evan Daniels after helping the Louisville Magic advance to the semifinals last weekend in Las Vegas.

"He played very well," Daniels told InsideTheVille.com. "I think he's so skilled and plays the game the right way. He shot the ball very well at times. The big thing about him is he knows how to run a team."

Snider teams with 2014 Louisville target DeAngelo Russell on the Magic, which is coached by former Cardinal Ellis Myles. Russell is ranked one of Scout.com's Top 25 prospects nationally and has offers from Louisville, Indiana and Ohio State. Snider runs the point for the Magic, while the 6'3 Russell plays off the ball.

"Looking at [Snider] you don't see a guy that is necessarily quick, but the kid was getting around guys and getting to the basket whenever he wanted," Daniels said. "I think he's a winner and a guy who has great feel and deft ability to pass and shoot."

Since committing to Louisville last summer, Snider's goal has been to add strength. When he committed, the 6'1 lead guard weighed 147 pounds and was able to bench press just over 100 pounds. Less than a year later, Snider has bulked up to 165 pounds and can press more than 150 pounds. That's clear progress for one of the Top 100 players in the nation.

This weekend, Snider's Magic will be playing at the Real Deal Tournament in Arkansas where he'll matchup against 2013 Louisville commit Anton Gill in a showdown Saturday morning.

An all-state selection from Louisville (KY) Ballard, Snider averaged 17 points, 4.6 assists and shot 51 percent - 45 percent from three-point range - as a sophomore.
