    Not sure how genuine his interest in us and what not, but Quinton is one heck of a player. I was very impressed with his highlight reel and not that it matters but he is rated pretty high on both Rivals and Scout.

    Quinton plans on camping at tOSU, Tennessee, and VA Tech for sure. He will also visit FSU, UF, Clemson, NC State, and UNC this summer.

    Film...when discussing his offers there was no mention of tOSU.

    My Take: The first few clips show a poor use of hands, catching blocks, a drag down tackle, and dead feet...I was honestly thinking there was some mistake or miscommunication. However, the last couple of clips show Quinton's upside...he can roll for a big man. In a year of short scholarships, I'd guess Quinton is the 4th-5th option on the DL this year.

    Quinton will camp at tOSU and is impressed with tOSU's on-field accomplishments. He also discusses trying to play basketball in college.

    Reports a 2.3 core GPA with a May test coming...needs a 900 SAT/19 ACT as it stands right now.

    Reminds me off both both Wilson and Worthiongton. Basketballball player decent speed and a huge frame. Rivals has him listed at 4.8 scout 4.65. Haven't seen his film so I don't know how he compares on the field.

    The height stands out...and makes me think of Worthington as well. That update is available for free for those that don't have premium access...

    Does the film suggests he's more like Wilson or like Worthington? I'm not on a computer where I can look at his film right now, but those two seem to be the obvious comparison which someone above already mentioned.

    He's he more of a speed guy like Wilson(seems like his forty suggests this to be the case) or is he a more powerful, strong side defensive end like Worthington was coming out of high school(obviously he's not a DT)?

    I am a HUGE fan of HUGE dlineman, so I certainly wouldn't be opposed to an offer if he deserves one in the eyes of the coaches.

    Quinton has been in touch recently with Coach Hazell. He is supposed to try and come up to tOSU in July, but hasn't set it up yet.

    Good to know some people close to the situation are thinking that. DE is a major priority right now with the recent departures and Quinton has all the tools to get the job down at he next level.
