quinzi If there’s one word that best sums up Stephen Quinzi, it would be versatility.

The junior from Pittsford High School (N.Y.), located 10 miles southeast of Rochester, can play midfield or attack, and is strong with either hand.

So it should come as no surprise that Quinzi has become the 15th junior from the Sweetlax travel program to commitment to a Division I program.

Quinzi has decided on Georgetown University, as first reported at Twitter.com/joe_lombardi.

Now, here a Q&A with Stephen on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
The quality of the education and prestige of the university, the great coaching staff and players that have been very accommodating and have made me feel welcome and the campus setting and location.
