Quevedo has been growing season by season and the 2015/16 academic year was his confirmation. 11.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and a PIR of 13.3 with Star Uni Ferrol were worth his call for the Spanish team for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, in which she was runner-up.

“Going back to Madrid makes me excited”
“Going back to Madrid, my home, is without a doubt what excites me the most. I am young, but since I was a senior I have lived outside of here. So being able to return to my city is something incredible, not only for me, but for my family and friends that they can come to see me play and have me closer, “he said.
Regarding the Movistar Estudiantes project, he commented that it seems to him “very exciting.”
“The team has had a spectacular season, so for the players who come here it is an incentive to try to live up to what has already been done. It also seems to me a long-term project, which is going to be extended over time, which is a good sign.. I know little about Estudiantes as a club, in the quarry I have played against countless times, and it was always a special match. For the season that comes, the ideal would be to maintain the level that the team has shown this year and try to match all the achievements, “he wished.
