At the start of his freshman year, Qortez attended Siena Heights University pursing basketball. He later transferred to the school of his dreams, Oakland University.
Qortez is majoring in Communications, with a minor in Media Production.
His love for basketball has tremendously helped transfer his playing into coaching and training players from all levels. While attending college, Qortez will manage his training business for athletes.
Being in college has helped him stay focused on the career that he wants and college reminds him that his life is bigger than basketball. Having the ability to train players gives him a greater feeling than playing. Being able to inspire others through the game holds great value to him.
