Omaha Westside junior Quinn Weidemann started at point guard as a freshman and has gone on to break school records and win a state championship. And she is yet to play her senior season.
After unofficially visiting UNO early in her high school career, her recruitment has been steady.
“The schools calling me the most at this point are American, Valparaiso, Bryant, Oklahoma State, North Dakota State and Army,” Weidemann said.
The 5-foot-10 Weidemann will attend elite-level camps at Oklahoma State and DePaul later this summer.
A visit to Army on April 17 was her first official visit, and it proved to be a great experience.
“They didn’t officially offer me a scholarship yet because I need to be accepted to the school first,” she said. “I feel good about Army and they told me they really like my style of play.”
As far as what she is looking for in a school after her high school career is over, Weidemann said she is looking to play as a freshman and find a school with room at the point guard position.
Weidemann is playing on All-Nebraska Attack’s top 17U team this summer on the AAU circuit. The team heads to the Nike Boo Williams Invitational in Hampton, Virginia, this weekend.
“I really am excited about getting the opportunity to play with these girls and get to know them better,” Weidemann said of her teammates. “That and travel to really cool places.”
Those places include Chicago, Indianapolis and two trips to Minneapolis.
Next winter, when the ball is tipped on her final high school season she has two goals.
“I really want to win a state championship my senior year and break the school career scoring record.”
