Florida QB grew up Miami fan

Quinton Flowers is a talented quarterback prospect from Miami Jackson High, and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Quinton Flowers had one of the best seasons of any quarterback in Dade County last season. He's the county's third leading passer among returning players heading into the 2013 season.

At 6-feet and 200 pounds, Flowers threw for 1,712 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He also added 631 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. Because of his size and his athletic ability in the open field, he could end projecting better at another position if he decides not to play in a spread offense at the college level. Flowers talked some early recruiting.

"My top colleges right now are Marshall and USF," Flowers said. "But the college I've always wanted to go to since I was a chold is Miami. They're my hometown school."

In addition to being his hometown school, the Hurricanes have already hosted Flowers for one of their Junior Day events. If he ended up a Hurricane, there's a good chance he'd end up playing another position. Marshall and USF are recruiting him to play quarterback in their spread offenses.

At the end of the day, Flowers says he'll know which school he feels most comfortable at.

"It's wherever God wants me to be is where I'll go," he said.

Stay on Scout for more coverage of Flowers, who currently has an offer from Marshall, in the near future.
