McQuitty's SEC Road Show Stops In Arkansas

Columbia, Mo., Battle junior wide receiver Jaevon McQuitty (6-2, 190, 4.58) already has two offers and made stops at Arkansas, Alabama and Missouri this summer in his quest to add to that number.

Expect Columbia, Mo., Battle junior Jaevon McQuitty to be a name that gets a lot of publicity and offers over the next year.

McQuitty (6-2, 190, 4.58), who already has offers from Nebraska and Kansas, had 50 catches for 590 yards and 5 touchdowns last season for the Class 5A state champions.

He attended camps at both Alabama and Arkansas in the past couple of weeks in an effort to increase his list of opportunities.

"It's been really good," McQuitty said. "A lot of schools have been coming to me, like Alabama, Arkansas, Mizzou. It's been really good at this time.”

He thinks offers are coming from those schools in the near future.

"They're coming pretty soon,” McQuitty said/. “Alabama has me coming down to watch them play Ole Miss. (Arkansas) has me coming down for a game - I still have to pick which game I want to come to, but hopefully I get an offer then."

He enjoyed working with Arkansas’ coaches, especially wide receivers coach Michael Smith.

"He's a really cool guy," McQuitty said. "He's down to earth. He keeps it real, just in life and just in everything. That's why I like him."

Battle was 4-4 last season at one point in the regular season before ripping off seven straight wins and grabbing a title in the program’s second year of existence.

Defensive end Jerrion Nelson (6-2, 260) – who visited Arkansas along with McQuitty – heads up the defense after having over 100 tackles last season.

"It's looking pretty good," he said. "Our D-line, that's our strength, and our receivers. We've just got to have some young guys step up. The DB's are fresh and new, so just coaching them up and hopefully we can make another run."
